MASSIVE MAY MENTOR GIVEAWAY!
It's May! The air smells fresh, public holidays are coming, and there's a layer of possibility springing out from the blooming flowers.
OK, so in reality it's actually either pouring hard or there's snow on the ground depending on where you are in the world, but hey, we're starting this month full of positivity. And so should you!
But wow! Where has the year gone? We hope you're enjoying all the fantastic info we're posting on the site, and you know that you can hit us up with any questions not only in the blog comments, but also via Twitter anytime. We love to hear your feedback, so don't be shy!
May is a great month. For one, it means Pitch Wars is gearing up behind the scenes. Mother Brenda is running some workshops on her blog and this year's mentors are being gradually announced.
And we have a fab month of blogging coming up for you too. It's YA month, so expect a wealth of juicy, delicious bites from some gorgeous mentors to help you hone your YA novel.
But to make a positive start to this sunnier time, we have our giveaway. And it's pretty darn special, if we might say so ourselves. Are you ready? Below you'll see all the prizes on offer. All you have to do to enter is leave a comment here with the following:
Your Twitter handle
The category and genre of your WIP (so if you win we can match you up with the best mentor)
And then go tweet the following to the world:
