PW16 Twelve Months Later

I love hearing good news from my fellow Pitch Wars ‘16 people, and it seems like more and more announcements are happening every week.

For those of you who don’t know, I was chosen by author/mentor Kristen Lepionka for Pitch Wars last year, which is sort of like The Voice, but for writers (more of my thoughts on PitchWars here). Out of 1977 entries submitted in 2016, 133 were chosen to be mentored by authors for a two month period, culminating in an Agent Round where our manuscripts were pitched to several of the top agents in the publishing industry.

Within the next twelve months, 67 of us have signed with agents, 17 of us now have book deals, and 1 of us has a movie deal (yay Tomi!) with more agent and book announcements happening all the time.

I’m honored to be a part of such a talented and tight-knit group of writers who all support each other and cheer each other on. And I’m looking forward to hearing all the good news from this year’s talented Pitch Wars class, who are just finishing up their Agent Round now.

There will certainly be more announcements coming and much more cheering to be done. Stay tuned!
