Query Contest on Kidlit.com

Well, I just found out about the query contest on Kidlit.com and as I have started on my querying journey, I figured I should enter. I've already sent out a number of queries for my MG novel and had a few rejections already. Query letters are frustrating since it's so difficult to make a query letter do everything it's supposed to do; the synopsis has to sound intriguing and the letter has to somehow convey a sense of the author's writing style. I've rewrtitten my query once already and I'll send it in to Kidlit.com. Hopefully it'll be chosen as a wonderful example of a query and the winner gets 30 pages of their manuscript read by an agent. Not bad. I've added a link to Kidlit.com in my blog sidebar for anyone else who'd like to submit to the contest.
