I did the WriteOnCon 2018 conference (feels like forever ago) and paid for two critiques, a 10-page and a 50-page, with agents for my first MS, Dragon's Leap. They were extremely helpful, so I've discussed it with my family and I'll pay for one 50-page crit for my latest MS, Dragon Scales.
Registration opens Nov. 1, and I know from past experience the crits sell out pretty fast, so if you're even considering spending the money, you should make up your mind pretty quickly.
What: Critiquing your manuscript pages or submission materials
Why: To help you take them to that next level
When: From November 1, 2020 until February 28, 2021
Where: Only at WriteOnCon
How: By simply submitting the form at our website!
Critiques start at $25 for a query critique. They also have synopsis critiques available, and all lengths of manuscript critique - from two pages to fulls.
Please note: WriteOnCon warns it's doing things a little differently this year.
1. Submissions (i.e. your pages, uploaded to Google Drive and available via a Google Drive link you share) are due at time of payment. So you have to have something ready, now, at the time of payment, for critiquing.
2. Submissions are also to "teams" of 4-5 authors and agents. You get a crit from one of them. You're not guaranteed a review or read by any particular team member. So choose your "team" wisely, or as WriteOnCon says it, " so please select a team that you would be happy with feedback from any of the members."
WriteOnCon is a great conference, with great crit boards on which you can get free help with your submission packet materials, and I've written about them both before (*links are for my reviews of both).
The conference (Feb. 19-21, 2021) is reasonably priced ($15 in past years) and you have access to panels up to a month afterward, which is always best for my schedule.
If you can, support this great writing conference and get some professional feedback, at reasonable rates, for your MS!
