Manuscript Assessments

Registrations for manuscript assessments will open in May

We are excited to bring you this RWA conference first. Any author, aspiring, emerging or established, will have the opportunity to submit an unpublished and un-contracted manuscript to your choice of one of our assessing agents or editors for assessment.

  1. Any author (aspiring, established or emerging) may submit a one page synopsis and the full manuscript,

OR;

  1. Emerging / established authors may submit a one page synopsis, the first three chapters and a two page proposal.

In return, the agent or editor will read the FIRST 15 PAGES ONLY of your submission and provide you with invaluable advice and feedback in an intimate one-on-one fifteen-minute session during the conference.

This is an amazing opportunity for authors. There will be a limited number of manuscript assessment spaces made available when we open pitch registrations in the coming months. You must have your polished work ready to submit at time of registration. These assessments will cost $150.00 each and are non-refundable on a change of mind basis.
