Picture Book Critiques with Melissa Manlove

July 8th, 2019 - August 6th, 2019

with Melissa Manlove

Group started
Preparing your picture book manuscript for submission? Get your manuscript critiqued by Melissa Manlove, Senior Editor at Chronicle Books, and workshop with your peers. How it works: Submit your manuscript to the group when the group officially kicks off on July 8th. Then, group members have 3 weeks to exchange feedback on one another's work. Melissa will post her critiques towards the end of that time. After critiques are complete, we will have a debrief call where each writer gets individual time with Melissa to address key feedback themes and discuss both manuscript and writing questions.

Inked Voices and Melissa Manlove are pleased to offer a spot, free of charge, to a writer from a diverse background. Apply: https://inkedvoices.typeform.com/to/DsuYIC
