Jumping right in! Our first logline critique round will be open for submissions on Monday, September 24 (one week from today).
For the uninitiated: I hold 3 critique rounds for loglines only (no story text), in preparation for the Baker's Dozen Agent Auction. Each critique round will host 40 entries, so a total of 120 folks will get a chance for public critique of their loglines.
To avoid confusion (there have been a few questions): These logline critique rounds are NOT a part of the auction. They are simply an optional opportunity to get some feedback as you craft and fine-tune your logline. You don't have to participate in the logline critique rounds in order to submit to the actual auction.
A logline should be as brief as possible. The word count for these rounds will be set at 150, but that's actually TOO MANY WORDS. I've padded it for stress-lowering purposes.
SUBMISSION GUIDELINES FOR ROUND ONE:
The submission window will be open from 9 am to 5 pm EDT on Monday, September 24. This is a lottery, which means the bot will randomly choose 40 entries at the close of the window. These entries will post on Tuesday, September 25, for critique.
