MANUSCRIPT REVIEW BY MAX RODRIGUEZ

DEADLINES: APRIL 1ST AND MAY 1ST 
Max Rodriguez, executive director of the Black Book Review and Harlem Book Fair, will be receiving, and reviewing manuscripts from Art Sanctuary members and supporters with ready-to-be-edited work!! 


From Mr. Rodriguez: "The opportunity is to be read by an imprint that is actively looking for publishable work. (I have launched Extra Mile Books as an imprint of Akashic Books). I am willing to let the imprint serve as a vehicle for Philadelphia writers. We will review full manuscripts in advance and set appointments for each; we can also offer 'work-in-progress' coaching reviews for those with incomplete manuscripts."

If you are interested in having Mr. Rodriguez review your completed manuscript, please forward to mrod@qbr.com in Word, txt. or .pdf format. Those who desire a 'work-in-progress' review should submit the standard one page summary and 10-page work sample. 

Submission Deadlines:
For Completed Manuscripts: April 1
For Work-in-Progress Coaching Review: May 1

From the Artist: "Threads of Africa exhibit explores African inspired designs through LaBré Threads of Africa Gown Spring 2017 Collection.  The showcase includes a selection of modern styles through traditional fabrics that embodies West African and diaspora aesthetic.  For every 7 prom gowns sold, LaBré will donate a free prom dress to an in-need Philadelphia high school student who cannot afford a prom gown.
