The November 2017 Workshop is in Progress

Our five manuscripts for November 2017 have been selected, but that doesn't mean the learning opportunities for aspiring authors and editors are over for the month! We invite everyone to follow along by reading the entries, the mentor's comments and watching the manuscript transformation over the course of the workshop.  Changes that worked, those that didn't work, and more importantly--why--will help in your own manuscript.  You're also welcome to make comments yourself about what you feel is working and what isn't. And you can ask questions of our mentors about their comments as well.

Want help from a literary agent and our published, award-winning, and best-selling authors to get your own first five pages and pitch ready for submission or jump start your novel? There is no December workshop, but the January 2018 workshop will open at noon on January 6th. We always accept manuscripts on a first come, first served basis so your chances are as good as anyone else's. All we ask is that your pitch is no more than 200 words, your submission overall is no more than 1200 words, and that both are formatted correctly, free of typos and grammar errors, and that you've worked through your story idea to make sure it can be written as presented into a full-length novel.

  1. Informative post. Although many people are lead to believe that vaping is just as, if not more dangerous than the conventional cigarette due to ignorance of the device, general safety of e-cigs or premium e juice, and their appeal to children, research shows that this is not the case.
