THE CONTEST (click this link)
Guide to Literary Agents seventh (and free!) "Dear Lucky Agent" Contest is posted on the GLA blog. This is a recurring online contest with agent judges and super-cool prizes. Here's the deal: With every contest, the details are essentially the same, but the niche itself changes—meaning each contest is focused around a specific category or two. So if you're writing a young adult novel, this seventh contest is for you!
