Have You Planned Your Classes? Don’t Forget the Slush Pile!

Did you check the schedule? The schedule is jam packed with great presenters!

The last class of Saturday September 24 at 1700-1750 (5pm -5:50pm–PST) will be a SLUSH PILE.

What’s a slush pile? Wikipedia does a great job of defining it as follows:

In publishing, a slush pile is a set of unsolicited query letters or manuscripts that have either been directly sent to a publisher by an author, or which have been delivered via a literary agent representing the author who may or may not be familiar to the publisher.

Polish off that first page of your manuscript or story and send it to wcwfestival@gmail.com

Pages will be randomly selected and read to the panel who will then tell everyone their thoughts on the writing, the premise, the hook… How very exciting.

This means you can hear the good and perhaps the not-so-good, of each reading. Learn from the different styles, voices, and techniques. Listen to what the expert panel has to say.

This is an opportunity for anonymous feedback from industry professionals. Send in those SLUSH PILE SUBMISSIONS to: wcwfestival@gmail.com

Send them now–come on…what are you waiting for?

Remember, even if you’re just doing the FREE classes, you still need to be registered. Space is limited so you best do it now.
