Publishing Gives Back Auction

Not everything coming out of the publishing industry makes me want to throw up in my mouth a little. Hooray!

For example: the Publishing Gives Back Auction.

Stephen Power, Senior Editor at Wiley, is offering 10 aspiring writers a chance to bid on a 10-minute phone consultation, with proceeds from the auction going to Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts. Bids start at just $10.

Here’s your chance to toss him your pitch, and he’ll give you feedback to help you make it even better.
