Questions about critiques

The submissions are coming in for the Black Hills SCBWI conference!  When I picked up my mail today, I received two more manuscripts for critiques.

Questions also have been pouring in. . . .

Many of you are wondering if you need to send anything with your manuscript.  Good question.  I recommend that you include a one-page cover letter that contains a brief summary of your piece and background about yourself as a writer.

If you are submitting a chapter from a novel, you may send a synopsis.  (Please make sure it is brief -- not more than one page).

BTW - The postmark deadline for critiques is October 17.

As always, let me know if you have questions.

All best,
