Who Are the AGENTS?? and How Does The Mentor Program Work?

Each week, you have the opportunity to send in up to two pages of your manuscript or WIP. It can be related to something covered in one of the workshop classes or something you are stumped on and can't figure out. Or you may just have a question about a paragraph description, point of view, plot movement - just whatever.

Also, you must include your question or concern at the top of the email. The weekly mentor workshop is not designed for general critiques, but for specific questions the writer may have or for help with any of the classes we have discussed. Or just a personal question or chat the writer doesn't want to put in the public comments.

Remember, there will be THREE agent giveaways for all those enrolled in the mentor workshop.

Send mentor pages, questions or personal chats to:

workshop ink in the book at g mail dot com (no spaces)

It's really a win-win situation for those enrolled. You get personal questions and feedback on your work AND the chance to win a super long critique from an agent. Do you want to know WHO the agents are that will be helping out?

Drum roll please>>>>>>>>>>>

Linda Glaz with Hartline Literary Agency 


for a critique of the first 5 pages!

Marisa Cleveland with The Seymour Agency

for a critique of the first three chapters or first 50 pages!

Terrie Wolf with AKA Literary

for a personal phone call!

There are other agents and an editor who will be participating in the pitch opportunity (3 more, at least!!!!) There will be a special post and announcement SOON!

    2. Did you get my first two pages, I sent them on Saturday. However, I forgot to include my problem. I want to know if these pages have enough of a hook.
      Thanks.

  10. I am not sure if I have a mentor and I admit to some confusion about how things are working generally...I sent something to you, but maybe I shouldn't have.

  11. I'm not sure if I signed up for a mentor but I'd love one. I did send you something about a problem I'm having with the simple sentence. There are 5 key points in my story but every sentence I come up with (that actually flows smoothly and doesn't sound like it was just pieced together) leaves out at least one of those key points. I just can't get all 5 included. How important is it for it to just be one sentence? Is this really a big deal when pitching to agents? Or is this more for our benifit?

    3. Let me try that again without the typos. I sent it to workshopinkinthebook@gmail.com

      The subject line says: mentor help with simple sentence.
