APPLICATION GUIDELINES FOR THE WRITER'S HOTEL NYC ALL-FICTION WRITER'S CONFERENCE | "MINI MFA": JUNE 3-9, 2020
To apply, submit only the first 5000 words of a fiction manuscript. Writers may submit work in any fiction sub-genre. Novels, novels-in-progress, short stories, and short story collections-in-progress are all welcome. The application writing sample must be the first pages of a current target manuscript. Writers may apply below via the Submittable submission button. It is $30 to apply.
In order to be eligible for TWH 2020, writers should be working on an unpublished target manuscript. A target manuscript is a writer's present writing project--the manuscript that the writer will bring to NYC and present to agents or editors. This target manuscript can be a work-in-progress or it can be full-length draft. Writers should have at least 30-50 finished, polished pages by June, 2020, in order to pitch their manuscript to agents on-site.
Please note that we do not work on full-length manuscripts that are over 100K words. If we move forward with an application, the writer will be contacted for a brief phone interview. During the interview, the writer will have the opportunity to discuss their writing and writing goals. We process our applications as quickly as possible. If we feel that a writer is a good fit for TWH, we will work through the acceptance materials quickly. We are prompt to notify about acceptance status, and prompt to begin our pre-conference Team Reading,so that writers can benefit right away from our editing and feedback process.
:: Deadline: Saturday, March 9, 2020 at midnight. We look forward to reading your work. ::
