Everything You Love About Conferences, From Home

A Manuscript Academy membership is everything you love about in-person conferences–but without paying for hotels, airfare, or childcare. For a limited time, you can get your first month of personal feedback from top agents, interactive live events, support and community for just $49, or $69 for all of our classes and services + a query consultation with the agent of your choice.*

We offer more than 30+ hours of filmed and edited classes, query and first page panels, interviews, and monthly member Q&A’s with agents, editors, and well-known authors–all available 24/7 so you can learn on your schedule. Plus interactive help desks, concierge service, and early booking.

The entire experience is designed to inspire your work while connecting you with the people who can move your career forward.

Access to exclusive recorded classes and panels

Classes are designed to educate you about need-to-know topics such as how to submit your work, what agents and editors are looking for, how to craft amazing novels and books, the business of writing and promotion, and much more.

Consult with agents and editors one-on-one online.

Using just your computer or phone, you can arrange one-on-one meetings with literary agents and publishing house editors who are actively seeking books and clients right now. (Meetings are optional. You can sign up for as many as you'd like.)

Get critiques of your work through our network of editors

If you want a professional critique of your work, then Manuscript Academy has opportunities for you. Our awesome faculty of agents, editors, and published authors offer detailed critiques of manuscript pages, query letters, synopses, and nonfiction book proposals.
