How it Works
Are you ready? Let's get started..
We're pleased to offer personalized, one-on-one manuscript consultations and coaching with our esteemed faculty members. From first chapters, to MFA applications, to full novels, these instructors offer a wide range of services. Instructors can help with line edits, query letters, structure, and more. The items below must be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. No applications will be screened until the payment confirmation has come through.
A $25 non-refundable reading fee (this will go toward your consult fee once you begin the process). This can be paid via PayPal.
SHORT SYNOPSIS + EXCERPT
A short synopsis (3-5 sentences) of your project and what you’d like the faculty member to help you with and, of course, the manuscript or pages you would submit for review.
A ranked list of three (3) authors you’d like to work with. PLEASE NOTE: Author availability can change, even temporarily. If your first choice is unavailable, we will move to your 2nd or 3rd choice. If the project does not get picked up, please note the $25 fee is non-refundable, unfortunately.
We'll screen your application and coordinate with your requested author(s) over consultation possibility. Once all parties are in agreement, we will connect you with your author and you two can set up your dates, times, and any other necessary information to conduct your consultation. At the beginning of each month, we will bill you for the appropriate amount of hours worked in the previous month, after which time you will be required to pay via PayPal or check within 14 days. Each month will be billed for the hours worked, though the consult can last for as long as both parties are willing.
