Thank You to the Mentors and Participants of the July 1st 5 Pages Workshop!

Congratulations to all of the participants who worked so hard during our July 1st 5 Pages Writing Workshop! We had such a nice group of talented writers. So talented, in fact, that there were 2 workshop winners! And a big thanks to our wonderful guest mentors, author Amy Nichols and agent Tanusri Prasanna. Both provided fantastic critiques. And as always, thank you to our talented and fabulous permanent mentors, who read, comment, and cheer on our participants every month!

Since many of our mentors are also mentors for Pitch Wars, we are taking a hiatus for August. The workshop will open again on Saturday, September 3rd. And if you have a finished manuscript, do consider entering Pitch Wars – run by our lovely 1st 5 Pages Mentor, Brenda Drake. For those unfamiliar with Pitch Wars, it’s a contest where published/agented authors, editors, or interns choose one writer each, read their entire manuscript, and offer critiques on how to make the manuscript shine. The mentor also critiques his/her writer’s pitch and query letter to get it ready for the agent round. Submissions are open from August 3-5. You can learn more here.

Happy Writing (and revising!)
