Query Kombat: Get critiques from the judges!!

Want a chance to win a query critique?

Of course you do!

Here’s how:

From May 27th to June 1st (8am EST to 9pm EST), judges of Query Kombat 2016 will scour the hash tag #QKCrit looking to make critique requests. If you want to get in on the action, all you have to do is tweet a 140 character pitch including your age category/genre under the hashtag #QKCrit. Judges will visit the hashtag and favorite entries they find interesting enough to critique. If your entry is favorited, touch base with the judge to find out how to submit your query, first page, or both! Agents may critique as many entries as they like. It is completely up to them to decided how many critiques they'll take on.

A few rules:
  1.  QK Entrants and spectators, please avoid favoriting entries so there’s no confusion.
  2. The #QKCrit critique opportunity is ONLY open to QK2016 entrants who DON'T make it into the first round.
  3. Participants, please limit your pitching to two per hour per manuscript (max of 2 mss)
  4. Please don’t tweet directly to judges.
  5. Oh, and if you snag a critique, be considerate and give other people a chance and take a break from the feed.
  6. Have FUN!!!
Questions? Feel free to ask on #QueryKombat and one of the hosts will get back to you as soon as we can.

  1. Such an awesome offer. Of course, I hold out hope that it won't apply to me (because I'll get selected), but it is great to know that this is a backup possibility.
