A Conference Built For Modern Writers

The Manuscript Academy exists for writers who want the best aspects of a conference--the classes, the direct access to experts, the networking, and the personalized critiques--delivered right to you, in the comfort of your home. 

Our model is different: You can learn on your own schedule, after the kids have gone to bed, the workday is over, and you've changed into your PJs. You don't need to pay for flights or hotels, meals out, or even a new blazer. 

With professional-grade recordings of classes, webcam workshops and pitch meetings, and critiques by our faculty of top agents and editors, everything you need is right here. 

Your 30 days of access starts when you purchase your Full Library Pass.

    The workshop was great! Saba spent lots of time with each of our pages. I loved that the workshop was just a small group. It was cozy! The Manuscript Academy is such a wonderful concept. You guys are truly doing a fantastic thing here. I’ve learned more in the last month since joining than I have the last three years of networking. Thanks so much:)

    I still can't decide on which faculty member I should book for a Manuscript Academy meeting! They're all so good.

    The workshop was wonderful. Honest but kind and constructive in her feedback. I got some great advice specific to my page and learned a lot from listening to an agent talk through her evaluation of a page. (This was the first time I've spoken to an agent face to face and heard her talk through a page.) It was also helpful to interact with the other authors. I got contacts for two potential critique partners and I did it in my pajamas from Brazil! So thanks again for organizing so many great events. I hope it happens again next year.

    Think I just heard the best fog-burning, kinetically-explanatory overview on VOICE ever, thanks to @LZats and @MSWLMA
