FTW Fundraiser 2021 – NOW CLOSED

If you’ve written a Young Adult novel, a Middle Grade novel, 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 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 $40, and $60 for all others. Only two registrations per person. The funds raised will go towards the CANSCAIP Prairie Horizons Conference in 2021.

This offer will be open from January 1st until January 31st or until 110 registrations have been received. Register through the CANSCAIP national page (if you are a member make sure you log in first, to get the member pricing). Register HERE.
