Join the Atlantic Publishers Marketing Association for the Blue Pencil Café at The Word on the Street 2016

Looking for feedback on your writing? The Blue Pencil Café at The Word on the Street Halifax offers budding authors the opportunity to receive targeted feedback from a professional editor. Each registered author will have 15 minutes to discuss their submitted work with an editor. We’ll make every effort to match you with an editor who works in your genre.

This free event is offered by the Atlantic Publishers Marketing Association.

How to apply:

Email to a 3-page (double-spaced, 12 point type) excerpt from the work you would like critiqued, a short biography outlining your writing experience (no more than 250 words), and your contact information (email, daytime phone, city of residence).

If accepted, you will be contacted on Sept 14 with the time of your 15-minute session. Your editor will read your submission to become familiar with it before you meet.
