I'm excited to enter a contest with YAtopia that I found on the Figment forums. The contest, http://yatopia.blogspot.com/2011/07/elevator-pitch-competition-with-agent.html, is simple. Send in your name, the title of your book, and a few other details, along with an elevator pitch. An elevator pitch is 3-4 sentences that sum up your novel, as if you had only a short elevator ride to impress someone with the gist of your book. The winner gets to submit their full manuscript to Bree
