Writer’s Digest is doing a contest for YA authors! You can find more here:

15th Free “Dear Lucky Agent” Contest: Young Adult Fiction | WritersDigest.com.

Basically: You submit the first 150-200 words of your unpublished, finished YA novel with a one-sentence log line. Then you have to mention this contest twice on social media (which is, I swear, not entirely why I’m posting this. But since you can be disqualified for not doing it, it’s important.)

The 3 winners will get a free agent review of the first 10 pages of their novel and a year’s subscription to WritersMarket.com. As an added incentive, agents have apparently signed authors that they’ve found through this contest. (Though, since that’s not guaranteed, it’s not worth getting your hopes up over.)

Any contest from Writer’s Digest is going to have zillions of entrants, so I’m sure I don’t have a snowball’s chance in heck of winning. But hey, why not? No harm in trying!
