93: Critique of a submission package for a children’s or YA novel + signed copy of HOW ALI FERGUSON SAVED HOUDINI by Elen CaldecottPosted: March 13, 2011
DETAILS: A submission package is typically the first three chapters of your novel, plus a synopsis and covering letter. I will read and critique the whole lot, via email. I will identify the strengths and weaknesses of your submission and help you to make your work the best it can possibly be.
You’ll want to know that I can actually write, so I will also send you a signed copy of my latest book ‘How Ali Ferguson Saved Houdini’ which is an adventure story for 8-12s. In it, Ali has to solve a case of disappearing animals, missing neighbours and dodgy dealings before Mum finds herself in more trouble than either of them can handle.
I have an MA in Writng for Children and my first novel, ‘How Kirsty Jenkins Stole the Elephant’, was shortlisted for the Waterstone’s Prize, longlisted for the Carnegie Medal and was highly commended in the Sheffield Children’s Book Awards.
