Getting Past the First Reader: How Your Manuscript Can Make the Cut

Katherine Jacobs, Associate Editor at Roaring Book Press, and Grace Elizabeth Kendall, Editorial Assistant at The Blue Sky Press, will be talking about what it takes to move your manuscript past the first reader and on to publication. "From tone to plot to setting to character, first readers are looking for a lot in your manuscript, and they are looking quickly. How can you improve your chances of standing out in the pile?" This event will cover what first readers are looking for in a manuscript and how you can improve your manuscript's chances for success.
