Manuscript Review is one of the benefits of being a member of SDW/EG. Members of the Guild may submit up to 30 pages of their work for evaluation by the Guild’s Recommendation Committee. The fee is $20.
In the past, only fiction work was accepted for review. In 2017 the Guild added nonfiction and plans to add memoir as genres for review.
The Committee members will critique the manuscript and assign a rating, either Highest Recommendation, Highly Recommended, Recommended or No Recommendation. This evaluation can then be used by the author when contacting agents, editors, and publishers.
For instructions on how to submit your manuscript, see the Manuscript Review page on this website.
