This highly useful program is open once again, so if your novel is ready (i.e. edited and proofread and carefully plotted with well-rounded, believable characters), then enter!
WHAT IS THE PROGRAM?
Up to 10 emerging fiction and non-fiction writers will work with editors from Hachette Australia to develop high-quality manuscripts.
The program will run for four days in Brisbane, Queensland. Participants will each have an individual consultation with editors from Hachette Australia to receive feedback on their manuscript. During the four days, participants will also meet other publishing industry professionals such as literary agents, booksellers and established authors, and work on their manuscripts. The program will run 23–26 October 2015.
Hachette Australia does not guarantee publication of manuscripts selected for the program but reserves the first right to publish the selected manuscripts. Please read the full terms and conditions in the Application Form.
