We cannot promise which manuscript any author will critique.
How it works
This is not a competition. Participants work in a quiet, secluded room to elaborate on the story structure, logistics, and style of the entrants' submissions. Due to the critical nature of this workshop, it is not recommended for anyone under 18 or anyone who is sensitive to criticism.
All manuscripts must be submitted in advance, since there will be no on-the-spot reading for critiques. You will also need to be prepared to attend your section, which can be assigned any of the five days at the convention. Each section lasts three hours.
There is a nominal entry fee that covers photocopying and postage costs. Multiple submissions are accepted; however, the entry fee is for one manuscript only. Because of possible limitations in scheduling, we can only guarantee that one submission per member will be workshopped. We ask that each additional entry fee be covered by separate checks, in case it needs to be returned. Second submissions are scheduled on a first-come-first-served basis. Please specify the priority by which you want your manuscripts workshopped.
Entrants are not permitted to pay double the fee to double the word limit. Collaborative teams are treated as a single entity. Likewise, two or more short stories count as two or more entries, regardless of whether they're under the word limit when combined.
