On the first day of the Read Lit District event, several critically acclaimed writers will be critquing selected first pages of novels. The NBDB is looking for submissions. Here’s the announcement from Facebook:
On November 14, top writers and mentors Tim Tomlinson, Jose Dalisay, Jr., and Juliet Grames will critique “first page” submissions at the Read Lit District. The aim of the workshop dubbed “Coming Strong” is to help writers create a great impression at the beginning of their novels.
We are now accepting manuscripts for consideration. The first page must be part of a longer work that may or may not be finished.
Slots are limited and manuscripts will be chosen according to merit. Send your first page to Camille Dela Rosa at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline for submission is November 5.
Read Lit District adult fees are P2,000 for the 3 days or P800 per day. Senior citizens get 20% off. Student fees are P1,500 for the 3 days or P600 per day.
