YA and Adult Science Fiction and Fantasy First Pages, with Quressa Robinson

March 18th, 2019 - April 10th, 2019

with Quressa Robinson

Group started
Get feedback on the first 3,750 words (15 pages) of your Adult Science Fiction or Fantasy novel with literary agent Quressa Robinson of Nelson Literary. How it works: Submit your first pages to the group on March 18th, when the group officially kicks off. Over the next two weeks, group members critique one another's work. Quressa will post her written feedback towards the end of this time. After the critiques, Quressa will hold a webinar for debrief and discussion, where each writer gets individual time to ask questions about their manuscript. This is a great opportunity to meet other writers, learn from their feedback, and get feedback from an agent who knows the publishing market.

Quressa Robinson and Inked Voices are pleased to make a spot available, free of charge, to a writer who identifies as black or indigenous, or a person of color. Apply: https://inkedvoices.typeform.com/to/i0apvN
