TO SUBMIT A MANUSCRIPT
for your consultation with a faculty reader

The new deadline for manuscript submission is May 31, 2016

At the conference, the teaching faculty will read a limited number of manuscripts.  If you would like to have a manuscript consultation, register promptly. By the deadline above, please send the material for your consultation. Send a representative sample of your work in one genre; for example, ten poems, the first chapters of a novel (plus an outline or summary); or several short stories or nonfiction pieces. Faculty readers ask that you not send more than 35 pages of material. You are welcome to bring longer portions of your work when you come to campus.  At the conference, Teaching Fellows (junior faculty) will be available to consult with you informally about this additional work.  
Please note: you may apply for a scholarship and/or fellowship in one genre and submit a manuscript for consultation in a different genre.

Please send your manuscript to us by mail, not email. Faculty readers prefer to work with paper copy.

The following material should reach us by the May deadline: 

  • Send one printed copy of your manuscript.  (Bring a second copy with you to the conference).
  • Include a brief cover letter that indicates:
    1.  your contact information
    2.  the genre of your manuscript (novel, short story, poetry, nonfiction, journalism)
  •  Address manuscripts to:

     Anne Greene, Director, Wesleyan Writers Conference, Wesleyan University
     294 High Street, Room 207, Middletown, CT  06459.

Reminder - Please do not submit a manuscript by email.
