Help celebrate Talk Like a Pirate Day this Thursday!


This Thursday, September 19th, help us celebrate the best day of the year: International Talk Like a Pirate Day! To celebrate (and to encourage to get your pirate talk on), we'll be hosting a Talk Like a Pirate Twitter Contest.

Throughout the day, if you tweet your best writing and querying advice in "pirate talk" with the hashtag #YABpiratetalk, you'll earn the chance to win one our amazing prizes. Here's a sampling of the prizes:

  1. First 30 Critique from Stubby Pencil Critique and Editing Services, by Sara Biren (a.k.a. Lady Byrd Bonebreaker).
  2. First three chapters edit and critique from Kelly Loy Gilbert (a.k.a. Neptune)
  3. First three chapters edit and critique from Heidi Sinnett (a.k.a. Guppy Guts Skullcracker)

PLUS an assortment of other goodies from our treasure chest and more - including additional critiques from our crew members. Come back on Thursday for the prize details and instructions on how to enter.
