I’ll be at the One Story booth at The (Makers) Market at the OA Can Factory in Brooklyn this Sunday. I’m starting a new enterprise–we are offering mini-mentorships to short story writers. I’ve always wished that I had the time to offer personal rejection letters to our submitters.
We get so many submissions per day, which makes this impossible, especially since we don’t want to charge a reading fee.
The owner of the Can Factory has been asking us to man a booth at the Makers Market for ages and I came up with an Editor is In booth, sort of like Lucy’s booth from Peanuts, except instead of psychological counseling, we would give editing advice.
Here’s are the basics: In a 15-minute private session, a One Story fiction editor will discuss your story. The editor will read your submission in advance and will come to the mentorship with specific feedback about your story and practical information on how you can strengthen your submissions and query letters.
So I hope to see you there!
