Tomorrow: Buy a Manuscript Consultation with A Famous Author


If you’ve ever dreamed of a manuscript consultation with your literary hero, here’s your chance to make it come true.

For $1800, you can get advice on your writing from literary rock stars like Amy Hempel, Tobias Wolff, Karen Russell, and our very own Cheryl Strayed.

The proceeds go to Caregifted, an organization that works to help long-term family caregivers.

Start cleaning up those manuscripts—the sale happens tomorrow, January 9.
