First Pages Events

Professional feedback on your first pages. Like a conference roundtable, but online.

How it works

  • 1. Sign up for your event

  • 2. Join your group on the event start date (we'll email you your invite)

  • 3. Submit your first pages.

  • 4.

    Exchange critique.

    Participants give one another inline and general comments on submissions. Your Pro will critique each member's work. 
  • 5.

    Debrief.

    After comments have been shared, event attendees meet online to share insights and ask questions.
Who should attend?

This workshop is for writers who have completed a manuscript and are interested in getting agent feedback. We recommend putting your best foot forward and self-editing before sharing with the group.
