Brenda Drake’s #Pitchwars is back – & 3 of the Nestpitch team are Mentors!

tumblr_lhjnfsdULm1qzp85mo1_500Hello All,

Well as many of you know, the tireless Brenda Drake has once again put together an awesome team of Mentors for #PitchWars 2014.

If you haven’t heard of #Pitchwars or Brenda Drake, I recommend you follow her blog here: and on Twitter here:

You’ll also find information aplenty on her blog about pitchwars & other comps she hosts, about Brenda and lots of little tips and helpful hints on sharpening your writing.

When I started #Nestpitch, my intention was to make this blog

  • Home base for information on #Nestpitchtumblr_mf8yzcCvsM1rwiv0vo1_250
  • A centre for general writing information and links
  • A place for good and great news
  • a reference point for other competitions I know are run by exceptional people.

Which is why I’m recommending #Pitchwars.

Now, it would be best if you read Brenda’s blog posts for the complete run-down, but basically #Pitchwars is for MG, YA, NA & Adult (completed) manuscripts. Those authors/manuscripts selected will have one-on-one mentoring for the next 10-12 weeks to make their manuscript shine even more brightly, at which point, they will be let loose on a selected and extraordinary group of agents – who will then make their requests.

But there’s another reason why this years Pitchwars means so much to me. Three of my #Nestpitch team are Mentors. We have:

Dannie Morin: – Twitter – – Blog:

Stacey Trombley:- Twitter –   Blog:

Plus there’s more than 70 other Mentor’s to pick from!

So, time to check out Brenda’s list of Mentors and her rules and guidelines… and folks, please follow the guidelines. Setting up, coordinating and hosting comps is hard, it helps a lot if everyone follows rules and guidelines.

Best of luck to everyone  🙂
