Manuscript Intensive - December 2020 

How it works:

The San Francisco Creative Writing Institute Manuscript Intensive is a four-week, one-on-one opportunity for a published writer to examine your completed prose manuscript (novel, memoir or other non-fiction, essay or story collection) and give you valuable feedback for revision or submission to agents or publishers. If you have a completed manuscript and want to know what the next steps to take are, this is the course for you.

You'll email your manuscript to us at mentor@sfwriting.institute along with tendering a retainer fee. We will look at your manuscript and assign you one of our mentors based on your work and their specialities.

1. The mentor will spend the first week of the month reading your book. 
2. In the second week, you will receive an editorial mark-up of the first chapter or first 25 pages (whichever is most appropriate) and an editorial letter oriented toward revision
3. In the third week, you can initiate an email conversation about the edits and feedback, and even offer a revision of the first pages for a "second look."
4. In the final week, your mentor will respond to your commentary and any possible revisions to the opening pages and offer final guidance for revision or submission.
