Call For Submissions: YA, It's Your Turn!

Earlier this year, we held Are You Hooked? rounds for Middle Grade and Adult novels.  For a final hurrah this year, I give you -- Are You Hooked? for Young Adult!

If you write anything YA -- any genre -- this round is for you!  (If you write middle grade or adult fiction, this round is not for you.)

Submission guidelines:

  • The submission window will be open from 3:00 PM EDT today until 3:00 PM EDT tomorrow.
  • Submit a 50-words-or-less LOGLINE and the first 250 words of your manuscript.
  • The bot will accept 25 entries (this is not a lottery).
  • (If for some reason response is bigger, I'll open a few more slots.)
  • Your excerpts will post on WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 14.
  • YOUNG ADULT FICTION ONLY!  If you enter anything else, it will be disqualified.
  • Enter HERE.
Questions below!


  1. Does it have to be a completed manuscript?

  2. Sorry to be a bother but one more thing. When I click on the link it says it starts at 4:00 EST. 1:00 PM PST. But your post says 3:00 EST.

    1. Thank you, Rick -- I have corrected the time error. 3:00 EST is the correct time, which should now be reflected on the submission form.

      And, no, it does not have to be a completed manuscript.

  3. I have an agent reading the full right now. Can I still participate?

  4. I am wondering if all of the submissions are shown here. I received my conformation email and was thinking their would be up to 25 slots, but I don't see mine here. Did I misunderstand something?

    1. Never mind! I am seeing more now:) Thank you!
