Before we get started, I want to emphasize that EVERYONE who entered the auditions round needs to enter the Call Backs round, even if you haven’t received feedback for your pitch yet. You need to enter ALL THREE ROUNDS to be considered for the finals.
If you didn’t enter the first round, you cannot enter any subsequent rounds.
And for those who didn’t get feedback yet: If you received a confirmation email that says your entry made it, you’re in. If you’re in, you’ll get feedback. If you haven’t, you will. We’re typing up 179 individual letters, while carrying on some semblance of normal lives, so it’s coming. I think a 48 hour turn around time is pretty quick considering how fast the industry moves as a whole, don’t you?
Now, let’s get this show on the road!
Just like before, e-mails will be accepted from now until 11:59 PM EST tomorrow, Wednesday 4/23. Anything sent before or after that will be deleted without being read. PLEASE send in your first 250 so we don’t have to bounce anyone, because anyone who doesn’t send their first page, even if they sent their pitch, will be dropped.
Today you’re ONLY entering your first 250 words of your COMPLETED and POLISHEDmanuscript, along with all of the other information like title and genre and stuff, cause we wanna know who ya are. For the full story on submission details click here. Everyone will receive confirmation for their entry.
Again, pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease read all of the deets so you know what to do, when to do it, and how to avoid being bounced during any of the rounds. A rundown on how said rounds will go can be found here.
Any questions or concerns, hit me up in the comments or the #PitchSlam twitter tag, and read the comments on the posts to see if someone already asked what you were going to. There is also going to be a FAQ page provided, to watch out for that.
This moment also marks the beginning of Twitter Party day three! #ManuscriptMusic. Post your playlist for the manuscript on your blog and link it on Twitter so we can check out your jams! This playlist should include any music you listened to while writing.
I know writers love sharing about their process, so here’s another chance! I seriously cannot wait to read these first pages and check out the music that helped bring about these awesome stories. Let’s rock this joint!
