Manuscript Critiques

Registration for Manuscript Critiques is now closed. We’d like to thank everyone who made a purchase. Check here again in two years for our next conference.

We reiterate that this is NOT A PITCH SESSION! The purpose of this exercise is to help you develop your manuscript to present to someone else.
Registration will be through EventBrite, and upon checkout, there is a form for you to fill out to identify your manuscript, which includes space for you to ask your critiquer about what you most want to focus on.
While we’d like to, we regret that we cannot guarantee placement with any particular critiquer, nor can we accommodate people regarding preferred time slots.
