win some

The Deal

3 weeks out of every month, we offer one free coaching session, or one plot/synopsis clinic. Alternatively, once a month, you can win the 50 first pages consult. And there's a free spot available on most of our retreats.


All you've got to do to participate is fill out the contact form, letting us know which service you're interested in, and attach a sample of your writing with a synopsis. The sample should be submitted as a single double-spaced document no longer than 25 pages, using a 12-point font. It does not matter how well written your synopsis is, but it must cover the events of your entire story (ending included), introduce all the major characters, and clearly state the story conflict.

Selection Process

Coaching and editing winners are selected using a random number generator, but for retreats we choose the participants based on the strength of their submission.

If you're not sure how to get started, we do offer a free initial consultation. Simply click below to go to the contact form and request a time.

Small Print

We might use your submission for the blog. If we do, you automatically get an edit, and no identifying information will be included unless you do want to be named.
