The great minds at Splickety Magazine are sponsoring a pre-conference event for Realm Makers: 2014. If you will be arriving on Thursday for the conference, please join us for the Flash Critique Party, in the dorm conference room on Thursday evening. (Exact time and room number coming in the next couple days, as soon as the University confirms the room assignment.)

What is a Flash Critique Party, you ask? Read on for a message from Ben Wolf…

balloonsWant to make sure your manuscript is in great shape before you pitch to editors at Realm Makers? Have Splickety’s team critique your story at our Flash Critique party the night before the conference! We’ll have a couple special guest critiquers: Realm Makers’ keynote speakers from 2013 and 2014, Jeff Gerke and Tosca Lee. Interested? Here are the details for how to submit:
Polish the first 10 pages of your manuscript to a high shine and email them as a Word doc or docx attachment to by Friday, May 23. We’ll select at least 5 manuscripts to critique at the party.
Come hang out at Splickety’s Flash Critique party Thursday night before the conference to see if your manuscript was selected and what our team thought of it. We’ll have games and snacks, so even if your manuscript is not selected, it’ll be a great time to gear up for the conference. If you don’t want to submit, join us anyway!
