0 Red Light/Green Light: Final Winner Announced!

Happy Thursday, everyone!

Today we're wrapping up this spring's Red Light/Green Light contest. We had some fantastic entries, but as you know, only one can prevail. It is my great pleasure to announce that the winner of a full request from agent Alyssa Jennette is........

Laura McFadden

Alyssa had this to say about the contest and our wonderful entrants. 

"This wasn't an easy or straightforward decision, and it delights me to see such an exciting variety of stories and voices--truly no two were alike, which is a real joy (and challenge!) for me as someone who cares about advocating for fresh concepts. I had to choose one winner, but that doesn't mean the other contestants should be discouraged about their work. I would be happy to see a query from any of you in my inbox once you're ready to start submitting.

Thanks to Laura and Adventures in YA Publishing for giving me the chance to read your work, and to every one of you for participating in this contest. I wish you nothing but the best as you move forward in your quest to get published!"

Thank you so much to all who participated, and best of luck on your querying journeys. Stay tuned for further opportunities come summer, including a pre-Pitch Wars Critique Partner Match Up!
