picture4A Middle Grade or Young Adult Manuscript Critique (up to 400 pages) from my AMAZING agent, Steven Malk of Writers House

The value of this item is listed as $8000, but honestly, it’s priceless. Not only does he represent both the 2016 and 2017 Newbery Medal winners, but there is simply no one like Steve for unlocking the potential of a manuscript and giving you the feedback you need to get it to the next level – and the knowledge of the market to know where to pitch it. JUMP ON this opportunity, MG and YA authors!


A Picture Book Manuscript Critique, again from the AMAZING Steven Malk of Writers House

See above.  Did I mention how amazing he is?  Shall I also mention that he represents picture book luminaries like Bob Shea, Matt de la Pena, Jon Klassen, and Mac Barnett? You WANT this, picture book authors.
