Middle Grade Fiction First Pages, with Tina Wexler

October 27th, 2017 - November 20th, 2017

with Tina Wexler

Group started
Get feedback on the first 15 pages of your MG novel with literary agent Tina Wexler of ICM Partners. How it works: Submit your first pages to the group on October 27th, when the group officially kicks off. After that, there is a two-week period where you and your group members will exchange feedback on one another's work. Tina will post her feedback towards the end of this time. After critiquing your work, Tina will hold a webinar for debrief and discussion on November 14th. This is a great opportunity to meet other writers, learn from their feedback, and get feedback from an agent who knows the publishing market.
