Here at Aussie Owned and Read, we love giving people opportunities to help them on their publication journey. After all, anything that gets books out to the public sooner rather than later has to be a good thing, right?
That’s why we’re pleased to announce PITCHARAMA, the return of our 2013 contest that helped match up a select few top Young and New Adult writers with some amazing boutique publishers, resulting in some fantastic publication stories.
More details will follow, but here’s what you need to know so far if you wish to enter:
1. You must have a completed, pitch-ready manuscript.
2. You must sign up to our list (coming soon)
3. You must post your 250 word pitch on your blog on June 16, 2014.
From there, the Aussie Owned and Read team members will each pick three of their favourite pitches to highlight on the blog and put in front of our team of independent publishing partners who then may request to see more of your manuscript on June 27.
We will also have the Pitch Your Mate bonus round, where a friend can promote your manuscript on their blog (details coming soon) for another chance to be selected.
So, what are you waiting for? Start sharpening those 250 word pitches, and make sure you keep your eyes on our blog for more details as they occur, including some of the success stories from 2013’s competition. Don’t forget to hashtag #Pitcharama on twitter so we can join in your conversations.
Lamingtons and love,
The Aussie Owned and Read team
