Have a young adult novel—or a YA novel idea—tucked away for a rainy day? Are you putting off pitching your idea simply because you’re not sure how to pitch an agent? No problem! All you have to do is submit the first 250 words of your novel and you can win exposure to editors and a review of your manuscript from one of New York’s TOP young adult literary agents, Regina Brooks?
The Grand Prize Winner will have the opportunity to submit an entire manuscript to YA literary agent Regina Brooks AND receive a free, 10-week writing course, courtesy of Gotham Writers’ Workshop, plus a collection of gourmet teas from Possibiliteas.co!
The Top Five Entrants (including the Grand Prize winner) will receive a 15-minute, one-on-one pitch session with Regina Brooks, one of New York’s premier literary agents for young adult books. They will also receive commentary on their submissions with editors from Scholastic, Feiwel and Friends, Random House/Penguin, Kensington, Kimani Tru, Candlewick, Bloomsbury, Simon and Schuster, and Sourcebooks. In addition, they will receive a year’s subscription to The Writer magazine!
First 50 Entrants will receive a copy of Writing Great Books for Young Adults by Regina Brooks

i have been searching for the perfect wonder woman costume for over 10 years, and i finally found it!
The last Mustache Monday for the month goes to Orson Welles, who on October 30, 1938 performed one of the most traumatizing hoaxes in America. He performed the “War of the Worlds” radio broadcast, based on the novel by H.G. Wells, which caused widespread panic when listeners took this realistically performed news report of an invasion from Mars to be true.
Stop by the Library to listen to the "War of the Worlds" broadcast, originally written by Howard Koch.
Happy Mustache Monday!
