Fantastic, behind the scenes conversation
Great to hear aabout what goes into making Manuscript Academy, what is coming up next, and a fun conversation.
Makes me want to write.
MA is a fabulous writers outlet for the 21st century.
Nice work! I'll be back for more and spread the word of words.
Just what I was looking for
An awesome academy on writing and publishing? Interviews with agents? Heck yeah! It's so cool to hear the insides of the publishing world, and so helpful too.
