ARE YOU GOING TO THE SCBWI NEW YORK CONFERENCE? NOW’S YOUR CHANCE TO WIN A FREE CRITIQUE WITH A BARELY CONNECTED, RELATIVELY INEXPERIENCED MIDDLE-GRADE NOVELIST!
January 10, 2012
If you’re going to the SCBWI conference in New York, and you’re looking for something to do for ten minutes, why not spend some time with a lonely writer? Tommy Greenwald, author of the Charlie Joe Jackson series (CHARLIE JOE JACKSON’S GUIDE TO NOT READING, the upcoming CHARLIE JOE JACKSON’S GUIDE TO EXTRA CREDIT), is worried that he won’t know a single solitary soul at the conference, and so he is shamelessly trying to buy companionship by offering a free ten-minute critique to ten budding writers. Tommy will listen to your pitch and accept the first five pages of his manuscript; then, if he likes what he hears and reads, he will send an email to the very few editors and agents he knows, facilitating an introduction. If he doesn’t think it’s quite ready for submission, he’ll tell you why in a totally nice way.
In return, all you have to do is laugh at his jokes and pretend that you guys are old friends.
