No query? No pitch? No Problem! The Young Adult Novel Discovery Contest

Regina Brooks, Founder and President at Serendipity Literary Agency, who'll be on faculty at our upcoming Lucky 13th Annual SCBWI Winter Conference in New York, January 27-29, 2012, let us know about this contest for YA writers.

How do you enter? 

You submit an "enticing" title and the first 250 words of your YA manuscript.  No query.  No pitch.  Just an opportunity to let the work speak for itself.

It's a chance to break through, but there's not much time left - the contest ends tomorrow, November 30, 2011!  You can get more details here.

Also, if you want to do your homework on Regina Brooks, check out her Agent Spotlight page on Literary Rambles, where Casey McCormick and Natalie Aguirre have compiled wonderful profiles on 109 (and counting!) kid lit literary agents from a multitude of online sources. 

Good luck!

Thanks for posting this; I never see contests that include incomplete works (probably for a reason) but this is enticing!
