When I visited Kathy Temean’s Writing and Illustrating today, I found this:
If you have written a memoir or narrative nonfiction book and it is completed you may want to enter “Dear Lucky Agent” Contest over at Guide to Literary Agents.
The deadline is January 31, 2010. You can find the details on her site or on the contest site, but I’ve listed the prizes below.
First place: 1) A critique of 25 pages of your work, by your agent judge. 2) Two free books from Writer’s Digest Books (I will give you several choices and you pick the books your want).
Runner-ups – 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 (several choices).
Now I’m thinking about memoirs too!
