So, you all know about WriteOnCon, right?
What?! You don't?
If you write middle grade, YA, picture books, or NA, you need to check this out. It's a free, online kidlit conference on August 13 and 14. Because it's online, there are TONS of agents and editors and authors, all willing to offer you free writing advice!
And WriteOnCon has forums where you can post your query letter, your first 250 words and/or your first five pages. Other writers will pop in and give you feedback so you can edit your query/250/1st 5 into perfect, shiny words to possibly catch the eye of a Ninja Agent roaming the forums.
I love WriteOnCon. No, I never got any ninja requests the two years I participated, but I learned so much and had FUN and got free advice on my writing. Not too shabby for free, huh?
So get on over there. Yours truly is wandering the MG forums leaving comments. :)
