Forum: The Manuscript Doctor | November 12, 2013

DLSU hosts its NBDB-sponsored International Literary Festival on November 12, 2013 (Tuesday). One of the parallel sessions will be The Manuscript Doctor scheduled from 2:40 to 4:10 p.m., at Conference Room 3A, Faculty Centre.

The Manuscript Doctor is a forum where potential authors (students, faculty, etc.) bring their book ideas/proposals/manuscripts for review by a panel of publishing house representatives. A 10-minute talk on publishing criteria will foreground the 1.5-hour period. Writers will then queue up to meet a panelist individually for 10 minutes or so to present details of their project and/or sample chapters. In turn, the panelist will read and comment on the proposal as to its merits/demerits and if they would be interested in acquiring it for publication.

The last 15 minutes will be devoted to each panelist introducing themselves and their publishing houses, their in-house criteria for book projects, and other information pertinent to the objective of the activity. The aim of this event is to foster a publishing culture that starts writers off at a young age. Karina Bolasco (publisher, Anvil Publishing), Agatha Verdadero (publisher, Master Publishing), and a few other industry players will be part of the panel.

Please come on time to reap the full benefits of the session.
