Check in, Mentors, and Agents! OAI!

It's check in day! What's that, you ask? Today is the day you get to send in up to TWO pages of of your current manuscript or WIP that you may have questions about in character development, plot ideas or plot holes, or something you may be stuck on and can't figure out on your own.

You must include your question or comment at the top of the email and paste the pages into the email. Your pages do NOT need to be the first pages of your work. They can be from anywhere in your manuscript.

All of those enrolled in the mentor portion of the workshop will be eligible for the Agent giveaways. You can see what this involves

Now, here is a list of all the agents and the editor who has confirmed so far for the pitch opportunity on February 8- 9, 2013

The pitch opportunity will be a private affair and only the agents will be able to see and comment on the submission packages. Everyone enrolled int he workshop will have the chance to participate in the pitch opportunity!

BUT, only those participating in the mentor workshop will be eligible for the agent giveaways. These giveaways will occur before the pitch opportunity, so if chosen, you will get feedback from an agent before your submission!!! Woo-hoo!!

The giveaways will occur around the end of the month to allow the agents plenty of time to critique before the closing of the workshop in February and also to give you plenty of time to polish your feedback from the agent! Double woo-hoo!!
