Adult and YA SFF First Pages, with Kurestin Armada

July 15th, 2019 - August 13th, 2019

with Kurestin Armada

Get feedback on the first 3,750 words (15 pages) of your YA or Adult Science Fiction or Fantasy novel with literary agent Kurestin Armada of P.S. Literary. How it works: Submit your first pages to the group on July 15th, when the group officially kicks off. Over the next three weeks, group members critique one another's work. Kurestin will post her written feedback towards the end of this time. After the critiques, Kurestin 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.

Kurestin Armada and Inked Voices are pleased to reserve one spot, free of charge, for a writer from a diverse background. Apply by June 27th: https://inkedvoices.typeform.com/to/JwTIVO
