Thank you all so much for entering our contest.
In judging this contest there were many things to consider: which were the most exciting and unusual pitches, how did they relate to social media scores, which seemed the most complete, which seemed the most marketable, and of course, which had wonderful characters. There were many fabulous pitches to choose from.
Here are the winners:
1) Wendi Silvano gets to submit to Christy Ottaviano & gets the Writing Wonderful Character-Driven Picture Books e-course for free.
2) Marcy P. receives a critique from Marsha Diane Arnold & gets the Writing Wonderful Character-Driven Picture Book e-course for free.
3) Laurie Young gets to submit to Karen Grencik of Red Fox Literary.
4) Mandy Yates gets to submit to me, Mira Reisberg, of Hummingbird Literary.
I will coordinate connecting the winners to editor, agents, and Marsha. Contact me at miraguy AT gmail.com
