What if you had a magical window into the manuscripts waiting in a publisher's "to-read" pile? We wanted to find out what that's like, so we invited writer and Entangled Publishing intern, Lillie H., to tell us all about it. Lillie writes and reads speculative fiction and also explores storytelling through the world of tabletop role-playing games (TTRPGs), from creating them, to playing them, to running them. And while you might think a publishing intern reading unsolicited manuscripts would be an evil gatekeeper waiting to tell you everything you're doing wrong, in this case you've got a friend in the slush pile.
You'll hear about #RevPit and other Writing Community News, and special guest Lillie H's take on
What an internship at Entangled Publishing is, and is not
Opportunities to grow as a writer by mining for gems in the slush pile
How to approach reviewing a manuscript or published novel
How to query a publisher like Entangled that accepts un-agented manuscripts
Encouragement for writers
Table-top role playing games as a storytelling experience and well of inspiration
