This month, we have an incredible opportunity lined up for one lucky winner: a Skype video call with prominent NYC agent Seth Fishman.
This is your chance to get feedback on your novel’s pitch, ask all of your burning questions about the industry, and find out how to make your query letter stand out. As the author of the forthcoming young adult series THE WELL’S END (Putnam Juvenile, February 2014), Seth can also tell you all about the publishing process from a writer’s perspective.
The winner of Kobo’s Ask An Agent (almost) Anything contest will get 30 minutes over Skype with Seth for a no-holds-barred conversation about publishing and writing.
Fill out This Form, including the top three questions you would ask the agent.
There can be only one submission per author. Contest entrants must have at least one title published through Kobo Writing Life.
Entry Deadline: October 25, 2013
