THE 8TH ANNUAL
YA DISCOVERY CONTEST
Thank you to all who entered; stay tuned to find out who our finalists are.
NO QUERY? NO PITCH? NO PROBLEM!
Get in front of top YA Editors and Agents
with only the first 250 words of your YA novel!
Serendipity Literary Agency is hosting their eighth annual Young Adult Novel Discovery Competition.
Do you have a young adult novel—or a YA novel idea—tucked away for a rainy day? Have you been putting off pitching your idea simply because you’re not sure how to pitch an agent? No problem! All you have to do is submit the first 250 words of your novel and you can win exposure to editors and a critique of your manuscript by one of New York’s TOP literary agents Regina Brooks.
Regina Brooks is the CEO of Serendipity Literary Agency and the author of the award winning book Writing Great Books For Young Adults, now available in its second edition.
—NOVEMBER IS NaNoWriMo—
In honor of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo.org) - an international event where aspiring novelists are encouraged to write an entire novel in 30 days - this contest is meant to encourage the aspiring YA author to get started on that novel by offering an incentive for completing the first 250 words.
