PITCH SLAM is an annual contest unlike any other, where writers hoping to gain the attention of agents can receive feedback on their work, and then Revise and Resubmit their entries before the final round. Captains–with the help of slush readers–select entries based on craft, marketability, and agent wish lists to form Teams that go head-to-head in a request frenzy!
FOR THIS SEASON’S SCHEDULE & SUBMISSION TIMES, CHECK THE CALENDAR!
There are three rounds during the contest:
- Round One – Entrants submit their 35 word pitch and first pages (first 250 words) to receive feedback.
- Round Two – Entrants submit their revised pitches and pages. These entries provide the pool for team selections.
- Round Four – The selected entries are posted for agents to request materials.
Please see the rules for further detail.
It’s a three-long adventure full of fun for everyone involved, with each contest revolving around a centralized theme featured in the team names. This season…
