I’m a member and moderator at YaLitChat. If you haven’t heard of us take a look because within one year (as of last Tuesday) we have over 1800 members. Many are published, many are seeking publication, but all are there to support and learn and produce the best writing for YA and MG readers as they can.
For the month of November we’re hosting a great contest for writers who have taken on the NaNoWriMo challenge. If you’re a YaLitChat member you can enter to win:
*A 20 page critique by a leading industry Agent or Editor (We have wonderful agents/editors who have joined our YAlitchat family)
*A bookpack of Rampant by Diana Peterfreund plus 2 books from Harper
“The winner meets their 50K goal or has the highest count of all contestants. As well as posting a snippet of writing daily (25 words of your writing for the day) and the word count for the day that you post. The winner would have posted at least 10 times during the month of November their word count and snippet for that day. Please provide your nanowrimo.org screen name and buddy all of the contestants.” YaLitChat Forum

I'm not doing Nano this year but this contest looks amazing! I haven't joined YAlitchat but it's probably time I do.
Nice to meet you!
