If you're late to the party, here are posts one, two and three for #XmasinJuly.
The submission window is open from 6:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. EST. Submissions should be sent to lottiehumphries14(at)yahoo(dot)co(dot)uk and you'll receive an auto response to let you know we received your entry. If you don't get one, leave a comment and I'll fish it out of the spam : )
Format it as if you're sending to an agent: Query and then first 500 words in the body of the email. Put your name, the name of the ms, and the genre in the subject line please. It should look like this:
Michelle Krys: THE WITCH HUNTER'S BIBLE (YA urban fantasy)
You can address your query 'Dear Agents' - as long as you promise to NEVER, EVER do this in an actual query to an agent!
You won't be ignored/disqualified/paraded through the streets in shame if you were at work or something and didn't see this post. If you get the auto response, we have your entry and we promise to read it.
Good luck all. See you on the other side of the slushpile!
