It all started when...

Brenda Drake created Pitch Wars back in 2012. Over the years, hundreds of authors have found success after participating in the competition, and many more have found a home in the writing community that follows in its wake.

In short, the competition has mentors (published/agented authors, editors, industry interns) pick mentees to coach for a few months. If picked, the mentees thus get a chance to work with someone who is several steps ahead on their writing journey - a truly invaluable experience. With awesome new leadership in 2018, the timeline has recently changed slightly. For more information, go here.
