As a new addition from The Manuscript Academy, #MSWL’s sister company, we are now offering e-meeting consultations with a select group of our agents and editors to go over your query letter or first page, get professional feedback, and learn more about the reactions you’re getting (or not getting…) from agents. You’ll be able to pick from Skype, Hangouts, or a phone call–and, yes, this works internationally. Please see our FAQ, our list of participating agents and editors–and consider joining our Facebook group, a free, friendly community of writers cheering each other on through this process. You can also learn more via the free MSWL podcast, with agent interviews, tips and tricks for giving your work its best possible chance.
Please note: Meetings are posted once monthly, and then often sell out. If there are meetings available, you’ll see them bolded on the calendar below. Want an email when new meetings go up? Click here.
