Like A Virgin 2014 Grand Finale!



The Like A Virgin Contest doesn’t just happen. It takes a village…eventually. But before we get to the village point, there’s just the pair of us — recruiting judges and crit angels, publicizing, organizing, and for Kristina (whose tech expertise far exceeds mine), a helluva lot of formatting. Sometimes it feels a little like this…

Why do we do it?

Speaking for myself, meeting new friends and reconnecting with “old” ones, feeling the excitement build, trying to ensure that writers have a positive experience with what may be their first public critique as well as their first contest…these things make the time and effort totally worthwhile. Oh, and when a former virgin gets an agent, and or a pub deal? That’s the best!

If you participated in #LV14, I hope you had a fabulous time and learned a thing or two (please feel free to tell me in comments). If you didn’t participate, and you’re a writer…

LV15Stay tuned! We’re tentatively planning #LV15 for spring of next year.

  1. Thanks so much for hosting this amazing contest. It helped me improve my query x100. It now makes a karate chop noise whenever read. “Hiii-YAH!”

    Best of luck to all those who participated. With such a talented pool of writers, I have no doubt the success stories will start rolling in soon!

  2. I just want to thank you all so much for all your hard work, and for giving us struggling writers a showcase. Cannot thank you enough!

  3. Had a lot of fun and prompted me to do some much needed work on my query. Not to mention start a blog and reach out to other writers. Thanks so much for all your hard work.

  4. Such a blast! I love working with you two. 😀
