America’s next literary agent

Do you have what it takes to be a literary agent? Next week, Nathan Bransford of the Curtis Brown agency will give all and sundry a chance to go prospecting through a slush pile of 50 pitches for books. The slush will be a mix of already-accepted pitches and not-yet-reviewed stuff that came in over the transom. After a week, contestants get to compare their acceptance rate with the real-life pickups. (Via GalleyCat.)
