Pitch Madness: Introducing The Teams



We’re getting close to Pitch Madness submission day on March 10, and I wanted to introduce the slush readers, agent intern advisers, and the host blogs and their teams. The teams will choose the best entries for their teams from the slush. The teams have to decide on the pitches together, but ultimately it’s the blog hosts and co-hosts who have the final decision. 


For those of you not familiar with Pitch Madness, Pitch Madness is a contest where agents compete in a game against their peers for pitches. This time the game is Clue. If you haven’t been a part of a Pitch Madness challenge before, please check out this post here for more information. The submission window is open for 24 hours (12:01AM EST to 11:59PM EST) on March 10. Our slush readers will read through the pitches and pick the top 60 pitches for the agent round starting on March 18. We try to get a good mix of various genres, but the writing comes first. Basically, if the submissions aren’t ready, it’s a pass.
