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.

If you sign up for a critique at Write2Ignite!, you will receive a written one-page critique or comments written on your pages and a 15-minute private appointment with your reviewer.  SPECIAL NOTE – Only registered conferees may submit a manuscript for critique by conference presenters. Both adults and teens can submit work for a critique.

Please note: Reviewers have a limited number of entries they can critique, and slots fill up quickly!

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT: MARCH 20, 2016
