Choosing a project was hard--but I ended up picking Kelly Barina, with her YA Arthurian retelling that I've now finished reading and commenting on.
And so... I've decided to open applications for a second round.
What I Offer
I’m offering to read your complete manuscript and give feedback, followed by (if you want) up to an hour of email support or Skype support.
What I’m Looking For
Your manuscript needs to be finished. If it’s still a little rough, that’s okay. While I can’t provide line edits, I can tell you if your plot, characters, setting and pacing are working, and we can take it from there.
Age ranges: MG, YA, NA, Adult
Genres: contemporary, romance, fantasy, adventure, paranormal. I’m not the best person for sci-fi or historical, though I love reading it.
How To Apply
Send me an email at writershannahughes at gmail dot com by 31st July 2017. Explain why I should pick you, what you are looking for, and tell me a bit about your story! Wat is it about (think pitch for your query letter, if you have it.) What is your age range/genre, and why are you the right person to write it? Please include a synopsis if you already have it (if not, that’s fine!) and your first three chapters.
I am an agented YA writer, represented by Kelly Peterson of Corvisiero Literary Agency for my YA contemporary Under The Dark Clouds, which is currently on submission. I’m also a publisher’s assistant with Glass House Press, where I read manuscripts and offer advice for acquisition and developmental edits.
Note: if you entered in the first round earlier this year, you're welcome to submit again if you've gone through revisions.
