0 October 1st 5 Pages Workshop Opens in 1 Week!

Our 1st 5 Pages September Workshop has come to an end.  We had such a great group of talented and supportive writers. And wow, did they revise! A big thanks to our guest mentors, author JJ Howard and agent Danielle Burby! They both provided terrific comments and suggestions. And as always, thank you to all of our fabulous permanent mentors! Two of our mentors had books come out this month that you should check out – Hoodoo, by Ron Smith and Soul Corrupted by Lisa Gail Green!

Our October workshop will open for entries on Saturday October 3, 2015, at noon, EST. We'll take the first five Middle Grade, Young Adult, or New Adult entries that meet all guidelines and formatting requirements. Click here to get the rules. I will post when it opens and closes on Adventures in YA Publishing and on twitter (@etcashman), with the hashtag #1st5pages. In addition to our permanent mentors, we have author Lee Bross and agent Saba Sulaiman!

And we have a new format! The workshop is three weeks, but the third week will now include a pitch. And Saba will select one participant as the “workshop winner”- and the prize is that she will review and comment on the first chapter (up to 10 pages) of the manuscript! 

So get those pages ready!
