Pitch Before you Send Your Manuscript for Feedback

Are you coming to StoryArts Brisbane and need to get feedback on your work?
Then read on…

We are doing things a little differently at StoryArts Brisbane.

In addition to submitting your manuscripts for feedback, we are giving you the option to query first. This option to query before you submit will mean your chosen editor or agent can choose which manuscript they are most interested in reviewing for your feedback appointment. This is an optional process. You will not be disadvantaged in any way if you don’t take part in this additional step.

If you wish to book an individual session with an editor or agent with one completed manuscript or picture book(s) in mind, please skip the Query First Process and submit your manuscript and accompanying information as per the ‘Submission’ instructions on the website. https://booklinks.org.au/what-you-need-to-know/

Query First Process.

If you have more than one completed manuscript, or more than two picture books, you have the option to let your agent or editor choose which manuscript(s) they would like to give feedback on. You can submit query pitches for up to five different manuscripts and/or picture books. These are in the style of a twitter pitch. The choices you provide your editor or agent can be in the same or multiple genres. For example, you may wish to put forward one chapter book and two picture books. The editor or agent can then either select your chapter book or your two picture books.

We strongly suggest that your query pitches are from completed manuscripts. Once the editor or agent receives your queries, they will choose which one or ones of most interest. You will then send your manuscript, query letter and synopsis for the manuscript that was chosen by your booked agent or editor.
