Happy weekend, all!  Jaycee here, and I'm excited to post the winners of the Lauren Hammond Pitch Contest!

First, though, we want to thank everyone who submitted to our first-ever pitch contest. There were a lot of great entries, and we applaud you all for putting your work out there.  If your pitch wasn't chosen, don't give up hope!  Keep writing and keep in mind that we have more of these contests coming this year.

So, without further ado, here are the pitches that, in her Lauren Hammond's own words "won me over:"

The Unity by Paulina Germanos
My Mother Grows Wallflowers by C.L. Howland 
Deadline Day by Erika Grotto 
The Almost Adults by Rachel Solomon

Congratulations winners!  Please contact us at naalleyblog [at] gmail.com for further instructions!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
