In order to simulate an overworked agent’s slush pile, Bransford will publish 50 pitches on Monday, April 13th, mixing professionally-accepted pitches with untested queries. His readers will have one week to judge, measuring their success rate against real agents.
Here’s more from the post: “You will read and respond to as many queries as you can. You will have one week to respond to all 50 queries. You can draft your own rejection letter and manuscript request letter (personalized or non-personalized, your choice), which you will paste in the comments section of each query … You may request no more than five manuscripts.”
