Manuscript Critiques

Will there be manuscript critiques at CCWC 2019?

You bet.

There will be two different ways to get feedback on your work:

  • 25 minutes in-depth critique with an agent/editor on your first five pages and query letter. $90  NOTE: This has sold out. Please e-mail us at if you want to be put on the waitlist.
  • A one-hour group session with two agents/editors. In addition to receiving 5 minutes of instant feedback and suggestions for improvement on one page of your own work, you will get to hear the critiques of other participants and learn from other’s mistakes and successes. The one page can be either the first full page of your manuscript, a one-page query letter, or a one-page synopsis. $40


Both options are available on a first-registered, first-served basis. 

You may add a manuscript critique at the time you register. We do expect them to sell out quickly as slots are extremely limited, but if you decide instead to add one later on, e-mail us at and we’ll let you know if anything is still available.
