Would my manuscript pass the slush pile? (Wed 5th June 2024 7pm AEST)



Presenters: James Layton (Publisher) & Dani Vee (Author/ Publicist/ Acquisitions)

Bring and share your manuscript and we will take you through our slush pile checklist and how we make the decision to take your manuscript to acquisitions.

We will ask you to share a short reading of your manuscript and we will provide feedback as to whether it would make the cut, or what it needs to get over the line and be considered for publication.

We’ll discuss:

  • Brand
  • Rhyme/ Prose
  • Quality of the writing
  • Ideas and story
  • Humour
  • Hook
  • Endings
  • Character
  • Dialogue, banter
  • Voice
  • Beginnings
  • Upping the ante
  • Editing
  • What next?

    You will receive a Zoom link at least 2 days before the workshop.
