Industry Professional Critiques

For those who dare, critique sessions are a valuable experience for writers of all levels. An industry professional will read submitted pages from your book baby and your query letter. Then at the conference you will get one-on-one time with your chosen agent or editor. For a whole 15 minutes you will be able to sit down and discuss your 1st five pages and query with an expert in the publishing business. These critiques truly offer writers a lot of bang for the buck!

Critique sessions cost only $40 each with a limit of 2 sessions per registrant.  You can purchase at time of registration or tack it on after registration with your Conference Registration Number.

Choose from our list of agents and editors:

Kimberly Brower
Courtney Miller-Callihan
Laura Zats


Madeleine Colavita
Jennie Conway

The Fine Print for you Daring Darlings…

Maximum word count for your 1st five pages plus the query letter is 1500 words. Submissions should not exceed 6 pages.
