The Winners' Circle
If your Pop-Up Submission is a monthly winner – and you’ve got a one-in-16 chance – then you’ll be invited to join the Winners’ Circle
Ready to make your submission?
Pop-Up Submissions lets you be a fly on the wall while literary agent Peter Cox and his guests from the publishing business react to your writing.
Never before has the manuscript review process been so totally transparent.
And that’s just the start.
Every month we look at sixteen submissions. The winner – which could be you – is invited to take part in each quarter’s Winners’ Circle. An in-depth mentoring session with you, two other Monthly Winners and Peter Cox.
Think of it as a launchpad designed to take your writing project to the next level… which might include advice on representation and publication, manuscript preparation or whatever else is appropriate for you and your writing project as it currently exists.
It's a fabulous opportunity for any writer – and it starts right here!
What You Tell Us…
“It's really a big 'thank you' for my slot on Pop-Up Submissions - I've agreed a 3 book deal with Head of Zeus! The confidence gained from the generally positive feedback gave me the impetus to submit to my agent. It's further evidence of the great value Litopia adds to the industry, particularly for relative newcomers. Thank you again and keep up the excellent work!”
“I just wanted to let you know that the feedback from Pop-Up Submissions undoubtedly played a large part in me eventually getting a 5 book deal from Ares/Head of Zeus. So thanks again. The experience was invaluable.”
“This was amazing! I'm super thankful to hear a little about what's going on inside the agent's mind when they see my pitch! Thank you so much!”
“I was on last week for another of my works-in-progress (Wolf Totem) and the feedback was brilliant. I've been thus inspired to a frenzy of revisions across the board. I'm looking forward to submitting again, when I've had a bit of an edit. Thank you!”
“I appreciate being able to go on the show with my submission. I have noted all the suggestions and will keep working. This show is very helpful to writers like myself who are trying to break into the business and feel a little lost along the way.”
“I learned a lot… I've already changed the working title based on the feedback of the participating agents and have already been through the opening pages a few times looking for ways to further enhance my story.”
Thanks for the valuable feedback - I would highly recommend any new writers putting their first 700 words in front of this panel of incredible honest people and critics! I didn't learn to read until I was almost an adult and I can tell you that the wise input of the Litopians will give you the opportunity to know how to use your voice and your talent!
I found the show really helpful, I was kind of stuck/not happy with the opening, and the guys' ideas on where to start etc.. have really helped! So for me it’s worth every penny and I will definitely be paying for the Priority Submission again. I'm now also a fan of the show and will be tuning in!
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank everyone at Litopia for your help yesterday, especially Peter, Mo and Jon for their comments, and Kay for her lovely reading. It was extremely useful... I've been wondering idly for a while about the wisdom of opening with the antagonist rather than the protagonist, and yesterday decided me.
The feedback I received on Pop-Ups boosted my confidence and provided an incentive for me to finish the manuscript. Within six months of sending off my first query letter I had signed with a literary agent.
