One-on-One Consultations

Are you just starting out as a writer and wanting to work one-on-one with an instructor?  Or are you at a point in your writing where you just want to sit down with someone who has read some of your work or even your full manuscript and can offer you feedback to take it to the next level? You’re in luck!

 1-on-1 Consultation and Read & Critique Programs

For a consultation you may register for 1 or 2 1 hour session (minimum) where you can learn from an instructor directly or bring up to 5 pages double-spaced or script formatted for impromptu feedback.  Prices for one-on-one consultations depend on the instructor and what goals you set (and the size and type of your manuscript).  In the past we’ve had prices ranging from members for $60 and nonmembers for $72 for a minimum of 1 hour single session; members $100 and nonmembers 125 for 2 minimum 1 hour sessions.  Email us to get details and price quote.

For a short manuscript, send 10-25 pages of your work–depending upon genre genre guidelines–at least  two weeks in advance of your meeting and you can have a private session to discuss your work.  Prices for one-on-one Read and Critiques of short manuscripts depend on the manuscript and the instructor you chose but can be about $100 for members and $125 for nonmembers.

Full manuscript consultations are available (length negotiable with the instructor) to members (email us for price quote)
