BP Energy & Conference Center
Many of our conference faculty also offer manuscript reviews for the first 10 pages of your manuscript, including an optional query letter or synopsis. Critiques are then presented in a face-to-face format during the conference. Manuscript Critique participants are automatically entered into the "Most Promising Manuscript" contest. Each reviewing agent, editor, or author, will nominate the manuscript(s) they feel are most promising. Nominees will be announced during the Saturday Evening Awards Reception. Awards such as these not only feel great and validate all those hours spent writing, they also look great on your query letter.
Tours of local publishing & printing houses, Meet n Greets with faculty speakers and local authors, and special hotel rates, silent & art auctions, and conference scholarships are also available.
