What does this mean?
Well, in the coming weeks, this is what you're in for:
WEDNESDAY SUCCESS STORY SHOWCASES: Each Wednesday from now until right before submissions open, I will be showcasing one of our BAKER'S DOZEN WINNERS from previous years. Bring popcorn! It's super exciting to see what past winners are up to now.
PARTICIPATING EDITORS AND AUTHORS: Keep your eye out for the announcement (and showcase) of this year's editors and published authors, who will be critiquing the entries.
THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF OUR PARTICIPATING AGENTS: All 20 of them! Yes, 20. I can smell the blood already.
3 LOGLINE CRITIQUE ROUNDS: This is to help you get ready to enter the Baker's Dozen, which requires a logline in addition to your first 250 words.
HEADS UP: Submissions for the first LOGLINE CRITIQUE ROUND will be this coming Monday, September 22. The submission window will be open from 9 to 5 EDT, and the bot will randomly choose 40 entries after the close of submissions. I will post detailed submission instructions on Thursday.
The official Baker's Dozen Agent Auction schedule is RIGHT HERE.
This is our FIFTH BAKER'S DOZEN, folks -- FIFTH! Worthy of some hoopla, yes?
