YA Science Fiction and Fantasy First Pages, with Eric Smith

October 23rd, 2017 - November 13th, 2017

with Eric Smith

Group started
Get feedback on the first 15 pages of your YA Science Fiction or Fantasy novel with literary agent Eric Smith of P.S. Literary. How it works: Submit your first pages to the group on October 23rd, 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. Eric will post his feedback towards the end of this time. After critiquing your work, Eric will hold a webinar for debrief and discussion on November 8th. This is a great opportunity to meet other writers, learn from their feedback, and get feedback from an agent who knows the publishing market.

Inked Voices & Eric Smith are pleased to offer a place in the workshop, free of cost, to a diverse writer or to a writer of an #ownvoices work. Learn more: https://inkedvoices.typeform.com/to/ItTceU
