Many writers are confused about the best option for their manuscript or if it's even ready for publication. Bring your in-progress manuscript for an in-class critique. Learn about the pros and cons of traditional publishing and self-publishing options. You can then leave a COPY of your manuscript with LeeAnne, who is the owner of an author-friendly publishing house, for professional critique (for an optional materials fee of $50 for up to 25 double-spaced pages + $1/page thereafter) and a list of publishers and/or agents who are interested in your type of work. This critique can take up to four weeks. A mandatory $10 materials fee is payable to the instructor at the door.
