Write2Ignite! Conference Paid Critiques

Write2Ignite! 2013 Paid Critiques

A paid critique service is an invaluable tool when working towards becoming the best writer you can be. A member of our faculty will review your manuscript; however, no one can guarantee publication of your work. They will give you a thorough review of the strengths and weaknesses of your writing, offer suggestions for improvement, and help you identify potential markets.

MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION PROCEDURE

  1. Submit a manuscript for critique in any of the categories below. Look through the faculty list below and pick whom you would like to critique your manuscript.
  2. EMAIL the critique coordinator, Donna Earnhardt (wordwranglernc@hotmail.com) with your choice of who you would like to critique your work. Be sure to include the manuscript with you name, title, email address, word count and genre.
  3. Please place this in the subject line: W2I CRITIQUE ENTRY.
  4. You will receive a written one-page critique or comments written on your pages from your chosen critiquer. A 15-minute private appointment will also be arranged with your reviewer at the conference.
  5. Deadline for entries is noted by the person’s name below.
  6. REMINDER:  In the email you send to Donna, include in your name, email address, title and category. And don’t forget to indicate who you want to critique your story. Otherwise, a faculty member will be assigned to you.

Reviewers have a limit of entries they will critique. When they reach their limit of entries, their names will be removed from this list. You may submit in many categories, but only one entry per category.

CRITIQUE FEE is $30 for each entry. After you have emailed the critique coordinator with your manuscript and your choice of critiquer, you will receive a confirmation email from Donna.
