This weekend, I'm one of the agents judging the pitch contest over at Teens Can Write, Too! Unfortunately, I'm late posting about this so it's too late for you to enter. But the contest was for writers between the ages of 13-20. The top ten pitches were posted on the site's blog, and have a chance of being read by agents.
I think it's a really cool thing, and I've already requested something. If I had been a teen writer (of more than crappy fanfic) then I would've love to participate in this. I definitely think writing is a muscle that has to be developed and all writers need encouragement.
So go and tell the winners how amazing their entries sound!
