Thanks to our March 1st 5 Pages Mentors and Participants!

I am sad to say that our 1st 5 Pages March Workshop has come to an end. We had such a great group of talented and supportive writers! And wow – did they revise! And a big thanks to our guest mentors, author Sarah Fine and agent Nicole Tourtelot! They both provided such helpful critiques. If you haven’t checked out Sarah’s books you should – they’re wonderful! I just finished THE IMPOSTOR QUEEN and I loved it!

And as always, thank you to our talented and fabulous permanent mentors, who read, comment, and cheer on our participants every month. Congratulations to our mentor Janet B. Taylor, whose debut YA, INTO THE DIM, was published on March 1. I adored every page of the historical time-travel adventure!

Our April workshop will open for entries on Saturday, April 2 at noon, EST. We'll take the first five Middle Grade or Young Adult entries that meet all guidelines and formatting requirements. (We are no longer taking New Adult entries.) Clickhere to get the rules. I will post when it opens and closes on Adventures in YA Publishing and on twitter (@etcashman), with the hashtag #1st5pages.

So get those pages ready - we usually fill up in under a minute!

Happy writing (and revising!)
