My Pitch Wars 2021 MG Mentor Wish List

Hello middle grade writers!  I'm thrilled to be a Pitch Wars middle grade mentor again for 2021. I can't wait to read your middle grade fantasy, sci-fi, contemporary, and horror, as well as graphic novels.  I have a particular interest in writers who identify with traditionally marginalized communities.  What is Pitch Wars?   Pitch Wars is a mentoring program where published/agented authors, editors, or industry interns choose one writer each to spend three months revising their manuscript. It ends in February with an Agent Showcase, where agents can read a pitch/first page and can request to read more. Writers can apply to four mentors with a query, synopsis, and first chapter. Find out more about the application process  here . What I'm Looking For I want to be entertained, moved, and shown a world I haven't seen before. Your manuscript doesn't have to be perfect, but it will show significant promise in premise, voice, and craft, and leave me with all the feels.
