Saturday, October 31, The Beacon, from 10am: Are you a new writer? Would you like the chance for an editor to assess your work? Then read on…
Book a 10 minute slot to discuss your manuscript (first 1,000 words/ first chapter of your manuscript – whichever is less – plus your book synopsis) with editor Cherry Mosteshar from Oxford Editors. In your 10 minute slot, Mosteshar will review your work and give you personalised feedback and suggestions regarding what you should consider next: edit, submit or self-publish.
Only one 10 minute slot with Mosteshar may be booked per person. Once you have bought your tickets, email email@example.com to be allocated a time slot. Please state whether you have also booked the Magical Realism workshop – if possible, we will allocate a time for you which won’t clash with the workshop. Then send your submission (see above for details) to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, October 21 so this can be forwarded to Mosteshar to read before the meeting. Any work submitted will be treated as confidential and forwarded directly to Msteshar. It will not be saved, copied or shared by the festival organisers.
