The Prizes
First place: 1) A critique of 25 pages of your work, by your agent judge. 2) A query critique from your agent judge. 3) Two free books from Writer's Digest Books (I will give you several choices and you pick the books your want).

Runners-up - second and third place: 1) A critique of 10 pages of your work, by your agent judge. 2) One free book from Writer's Digest Books (I will give you several choices and you pick the book your want).

Eligibility Rules
You have to submit your first 150-200 words of your completed middle grade or young adult novel. Plus a couple other easy things. Chuck lists them on the contest page. (Hi, Chuck!)

Now, I'm hoping that you all are following the incredible GLA blog and that the info in this post is old news... but if you don't, what are you waiting for?!

Let us know in the comments if you're planning on submitting! And if you don't have a completed YA/MG novel to submit, never fear! You can still enter our contest to win a signed copy of Libba Bray's ever-fabulous GOING BOVINE!


  1. Wow! This is great, thanks for posting!

  2. Ooo, I saw this. I really want to enter but I just queried another agent at Andrea Brown, so I'm not sure if I should or not. Sounds great, though!

  3. Thanks for the cool mention. The contest is goings swimmingly :-)


  4. Kirthi - Yayyy! Good luck!

    Mystery - Well, this is just a critique, so I'd try it if I were you. Why not, right?

    Chuck - Thanks for stopping by!

  5. What an amazing opportunity. I do not have a short story let alone a novel but if I did I'd be ALL over this!!! Good luck to all who enter!!!
