FINAL EXTENSION of deadline: Only two spots left for those who want to participate in the Advanced Manuscript Review. Interested Speak Up attendees will pre-submit their manuscript synopsis, outline, and up to the first fifteen pages, no later than July 8, 2021. Shellie will evaluate for clarity, focus, continuity, market viability, and presentation. She will also do a deep edit of portions of the manuscript itself and return to the author no later than July 12, and will meet virtually with each individual writer for forty-five minutes by Zoom between July 10 through July 20 to answer questions and assist in finalizing edits. Keep in mind you must be registered for the 2021 conference--this review is available to Speak Up conferees only.
