Manuscript Swap

How It Works

  • • Fill out this survey! Be sure to include your email address and preferred genre.
  • • You will receive an email randomly matching you to another writer in your genre.
  • • You and your “Manuscript Match” will organize the details of your own swap.
  • • Here are some tips on giving a great critique! (updated)

Note: Please be mindful of your swap partner’s time and discuss the length of the piece you exchange. We recommend sticking to less than 1,000 words for a PB and 10 pages for MG or YA.

Deadline: Sunday, Feb. 14, 2021

Matches will be emailed during the week of Feb. 15-19
