This is why we've decided to run a competition based on your pitches.
The prize is a 15-min 1-1 with a literary agent and a copy of Harry Bingham's How To Write. All you need to do is send your pitch in a word document (no more than 3 sentences) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject PITCH PERFECT.
