Manuscript Assessment with Alison Arnold

Manuscript Assessment with Alison Arnold


A manuscript assessment up to 1,500 words. Alison Arnold will assess your submission and provide feedback in a one hour session on Friday, 15 March at Gasworks Arts Park during the Speculate 19 Workshop Day. We will let you know the timing of your session closer to the festival date.

This 60 minute session will cover an assessment of your writing style, genre, characterisation, voice, narrative flow, and where your manuscript sits in the Australian marketplace, as well as answering any queries you may have. After this session, you will have a clearer idea of where to go next with your manuscript.

Assessments numbers are strictly limited, so we advise booking early to avoid disappointment. For those also attending a full-day workshop, we will work with you to try and minimise disruption to your workshop. Please note that no refunds are available if you withdraw from the assessment process. Please make sure your writing sample is ready to submit by the March 1 deadline.

Once you’ve purchased your assessment, email your 1,500 word sample to All manuscript samples must be received by Friday, 1 March.
