Announcing: The Lucinda Literary Challenge Winners!

This month, we launched our first Lucinda Literary Challenge, which took place over the course of five days. Each day had a different focus for writers: goal-setting, comps, elevator pitch, marketing, and writing. It was a great way to get a glimpse at what you’re all working on, from every perspective of the process.

Counting each completed challenge as one entry, we have picked three entries at random to determine which three writers will receive Lucinda Literary’s feedback on their query letter and sample chapter. So, without further ado, here are the winners:

Congratulations, writers! If you participated and didn’t win, we hope you still feel excited by and proud of the progress you made throughout the week. If you were looking forward to the opportunity to get professional feedback on your material, you can always book a personal 1:1 agent consultation and keep an eye out for our upcoming live events

It’s been such a pleasure to learn more about everyone’s current projects. To keep this going, we encourage you all to follow the other participants on social media—diving into a writing community will inspire you and help you stick to your goals.
