Today's the day!!! At 9am EST this morning, we are officially open to Red Light/Green Light submissions. Get your contest entries in for a chance at agent feedback on your full manuscript from Alyssa Jennette of Stonesong Literary.

Red Light/Green Light will remain open to submissions until midnight, and we accept NA, YA, and MG entries. Note that the contest does cap out at 50 submissions, and slots are awarded on a first come, first served basis.

Send your entries via email to ayaplit(at)gmail(dot)com.

Entries must be formatted as follows:


Please type AYAP CONTEST ENTRY in the email subject line for your entry.

Name: Your name.

Genre: Please include age category as well as genre. Example: YA Contemporary, NA Romance, MG Suspense.

Title: Your title.

Query Letter/3 Paragraph Pitch: Please include your query letter/3 paragraph pitch, minus any personalization. You do not need to include any biographical information--just the bones of your story, please.

Go forth and enter, and may the odds be ever in your favor!


  1. I just submitted mine. Any chance I can know if I got in? I imagine I probably didn't.


Tell us what you think. We'd love to hear from you! :)
