The Agent Round Starts Now!

“The Writer’s Voice” is a multi-blog, multi-agent contest hosted by Brenda DrakeMónica Bustamante WagnerKimberly P. Chase, and Elizabeth Briggs. We based it on NBC’s singing reality show The Voice, so these ladies served as coaches and selected projects for their teams based on their queries and first pages.

And TODAY they get to post their team members’ finished entries on their blogs!

Sixteen amazing agents are going to read these queries and first pages, then vote for their favorites this Thursday, May 22. Each vote will count as a partial or full request depending on how many votes the entry receives. If an entry receives 1 or 2 votes, those votes will count as partial requests. If an entry receives 3 or more votes, those votes will count as full requests.

Our sixteen amazing agents:

To read the other teams' entries, please use the following links:

Lastly, cheerleading is allowed, but only until Wednesday! We want to leave the comments free for the agents to vote on Thursday. (Also, we will only allow, well, cheerleading and/or positive feedback. Please don’t critique the entries before the agents vote. On the flip side, please don’t try to convince the agents that they want to vote for one of your favorites or, you know, threaten to douse the agents in silly string if they don’t vote for your critique partner. This is a silly-string-free site.)

Happy reading!

Angela, I'm excited to see how things go for the entrants, too!

Jennifer, submissions opened all the way back on May 1. The coaches have been building their teams and coaching their teammates since then. I'm sorry you missed out!
