Would-be writers take note!

Any budding YA writers out there?

If any of you are harboring dreams of becoming the Next Big Thing in young adult publishing, you need to check out's current contest: aspiring authors can submit the first 250 words of their novel-in-progress for a chance to have the idea seen by top editors at Random House, HarperCollins, Penguin, Harlequin and Sourcebooks, and get feedback on the manuscript from one of New York’s top YA literary agents. The winning submission will get a FREE 10 week writing course courtesy of the Gotham Writer’s Workshop, while four 2nd Place winners will get feedback from editors and a one year subscription to The Writer magazine.

You can get all the details here, and good luck!
