Announcing Pitch Madness! Candyland Edition!

Super thrilled to share that this year I will be co-hosting Team Peanut Brittle House with my dear friend & NYT best-selling author, Pintip Dunn!!! ♥ 

Unfamiliar with #PitchMadness? No worries! I’ve posted a brief overview below and you can hop on over to Pintip’s host blog for the FULL deets, dates, & important info…



The Pitch Madness submission window will be open for 24 hours on February 24!

What is Pitch Madness? It’s a contest held every March, where writers enter for a chance to win requests from the participating agents. Writers submit a 35-word (max) pitch and the first 250 words of their completed manuscript on submission day. Then a team of readers choose the top sixty (60) entries to go onto the agent round. Though Pitch Madness has a game theme, the next contest will transition to more of a critique based contest with agents simply requesting in the comments of the entries’ posts instead of having the agents play for requests. Also, hosts will coach our team members, helping them polish their entries and first pages.

  1. Hi,
    So can we pitch multiple times on the 2/24? I know the website says only one entry per writer this time, but does that include the pitches?

      Hi Patricia!

      I checked with Brenda Drake (the genius behind Pitch Madness) so I was 1000% sure I gave you the correct info. Here’s what she said: “There is only one submission per writer, which includes the pitch and 1st page.”

      Hope this clarifies!

      Wishing you all the best as you prepare for this exciting event!

      Darcy 🙂
