As we head toward submissions for ON THE BLOCK (a little over a month from now!), it's prime time for sharpening your loglines and getting them ready for the contest. I've opted not to offer logline critique rounds on the blog (like we used to have for the Baker's Dozen), but FEAR NOT!
K. Callard, fellow writer and blog reader, has graciously offered to host a logline critique round on her blog.
She will post the specific submission instructions next week (and I will post a link for you here), but here are the basics:
1. Loglines should be no more than 75 words long (this is my general rule--but FEWER IS BETTER!).
2. She will accept the first 50 loglines she receives from Monday, August 17 at 9:00 am EDT to Wednesday, August 19 at 5:00 pm EDT.
3. She will accept all genres except erotica and erotic romance. (Also no picture books.)
Thank you, K. Callard, for this selfless gift to your writing community! And to me.
Coming up very soon: A list of our 14 PARTICIPATING AGENTS, plus all the other GOOD STUFF about On the Block. Stay tuned! It'll be here before you know it.
