For an additional $50 fee, you can receive feedback on your work by a member of our Manuscript Evaluation Team!*

Send us up to five pages plus a one-page synopsis of a manuscript, completed or in progress. (Sorry, no screenwriting or plays accepted.) All submissions should be typed and double-spaced. The synopsis must be single-spaced and should detail your work from beginning to end.

The $50 fee covers a 15-minute appointment with a member of the Manuscript Evaluation Team who has read your work before the appointment. Because of time constraints, each member of the Manuscript Evaluation Team will evaluate a limited number of manuscripts. Manuscripts will be accepted on a “first-come” basis and no manuscript will be accepted for this program after June 3, 2024. LABEL ALL MATERIALS: (LEFT CORNER: your name, address, phone, email; RIGHT CORNER: Manuscript Evaluator’s name, page number).

The Team Member will determine the day/time of each conference. Schedules will be emailed prior to conference and posted near the Registration Table.

*Please note: Manuscript evaluations are not available to virtual attendees at this time
