Fancy getting some feedback on your work? Or would you rather score some awesome prizes? Well the amazing writer /editor /blogger Lisa Terry and I have come up with a contest that offers both!
Follow me on twitter @katherineamabel and tweet “I’m in!” = 1 entry
Follow Lisa on twitter @lisaslanding and tweet “I’m in!”= 1 entry
THIS IS IMPORTANT, AS IT LET’S US KNOW TO START COUNTING YOUR ENTRIES.
1. For your first extra entries:
Follow/subscribe to my blog (or be an existing follower) = 5 entries
Follow/subscribe to Lisa’s blog (or be an existing follower) = 5 entries (lisaslanding.blogspot.com)
And retweet the contest each time either of us tweets it. Each RT = 1 entry.
2. For FIVE extra entries (and here’s where the feedback comes in):
Email anything you want feedback on (providing it’s 500 words in length or less) to katherineamabel at gmail dot com, and I’ll post it on this blog for critique. (Don’t worry if it takes a few hours for your work to be posted – I come from the land down under so our times are a little out!)
Please format your email as follows:
Name: (for our use only)
Logline/first page/query pitch/whatever!:
Critique one of the pieces of writing. (To be exact, take three entries for each piece you critique). Please be kind AND constructive with your feedback. If there’s something you think the author can improve on let them know, but I won’t give entries for deliberate snark.
4. And for ONE last entry, spot the sentence I stuffed up in my explanation of the contest above and tweet the mistake to either myself or Lisa.
