Any fully paid registrant may send the first 20 pages of two manuscripts or two articles, 2 children’s books or 5 poems or 3 devotionals ahead of the conference for either critiquing or editorial review. This is an opportunity you don’t want to miss!
Editorial review is by an editor of your choosing to see if your project is something he/she might be interested in for their company. It does not necessarily include critiquing.
Critiquing is done by published freelance writers, with years of expertise in your area of writing, who assess your work, offering concrete observations and advice. (If you’ve never been published, you should choose critiquing instead of editorial review.)
Proper formatting and mailing instructions can be found here. The Transmittal Form is here. All submissions must be in hard copy and must be postmarked by Saturday, April 9, 2011, and/or received at Mount Hermon at the latest Tuesday, April 12th.
You should also bring along several copies of your manuscripts–there may be a second opportunity for submitting mid-conference!
