Short Story & Novel Feedback

Most short story and novel submissions are rejected within the first few pages, regardless of how many were submitted. Here’s an
opportunity to sit face-to-face with a professional fiction editor who’s worked with major publishers like Pocket Books and Kensington and noted authors including Stephen King, Joyce Carol Oates, Lawrence Block, and others as he evaluates your submission. Bring the first five double-spaced pages of one short story or novel for critique. If you prefer not to have your own writing reviewed, you’ll benefit by listening to other critiques.
Discussions include:
• How editors evaluate submissions.
• The importance of a strong opening.
• Placement of essential manuscript ingredients
