First Impressions: Manuscript Evaluations

4:00 PM - 4:45 PM

Would an editor turn to page two of your manuscript based on page one? How would a creative writing instructor advise you to improve it? Drop off a hard copy of your first page outside the Wordshop Marquee stage before 3 PM for a chance to be assessed during this session. Prose only, please, labeled with your email address, and the work’s genre. Pages not read due to time limitations will be responded to later by email.
