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.
