The literary agency, Knight Agency, is holding the Book in a Nutshell submissions contest. The deadline is April 20, 2009.
If you're interested in participating, submit three compelling sentences - 150 words maximum - about your completed, unpublished manuscript to email@example.com. You must write BOOK IN A NUTSHELL in the e-mail subject line. One submission per project.
Agents will choose 20 of the best submissions and request the writers' work. The agent will then give feedback on that work. The contest may even lead to possible representation.
Remember, the deadline is April 20, 2009. Winners will be notified by May 1, 2009. For more information, click here.
