“The First Thousand Words” Editing Fundraiser 2019

If you’ve written a YA novel, a MG fantasy, a chapter book for early readers, or a picture book, the first thousand words are what will capture a potential publisher or agent. They have to be pitch perfect.

Or maybe you’ve started a new project and you’re not sure if the opening is working.

We are here to help. Submit the first thousand words of your manuscript and up to two questions and our volunteer team of experienced, published authors will give you editorial feedback so you can polish those pages or find out if you’re headed in the right direction.

The edits will be done anonymously as Tracked Changes in a Word Document, as professional publishers use. Your pages will be returned to you within six weeks, with comments alongside the text, and with edits done on lines that need them.

The cost for CANSCAIP Members or Friends is $35, and $50 for all others. Maximum of 2 edits per person. The funds raised will go towards the CANSCAIP Prairie Horizons Conference in 2019.

This offer will be open for the month of January only.

Meet our Editors here.

  1. Thanks for posting this, Dianne. I just wanted to add that we have copies of old grant applications and reports, AGM minutes etc. so if you take over one of the positions, it should be fairly straightforward to pick up where the current executive has left off. Also, thank you to Dianne for doing a FABULOUS job of the Social Media position. Dianne is willing to continue unless someone else wants to give it a shot, so the positions we really need filled are President and Treasurer.
