    Intros & Newbies Pitchfest question

    Thanks to Pam for posting. We had some emergencies on the Savvy side and have been off-site for a bit. Yes, we'll be posting this on the site and in the NL this upcoming weekend. We always ask the agents and editors to complete their reviews/decisions within a week. Thanks!

    All things writing Hit A Brick Wall . . . help needed

    I like Lynette's advice. It's also worked for me. When I do this I write down the elements on Post-it notes and use my wall as a plotting board. It lets me move the elements around and helps get me out of the detailed editing mode I drop into when I am stuck.

    Going on RIGHT NOW Everybody ready for Pitchfest?

    Hi So not all the agents/editors post comments on the pitches, when they do it will appear as a thread to a post just like this one. YOu should see them directly under the pitch they are commenting on.

    The agents can respond in the pitches, some do and some do not. In about a week after the end, we publish a list of requests both on the site and in our newsletter. So you will definitely know by then!
