Five Steps to Getting Out of the Slush Pile, Deborah Raney, 2.22.14



“Five Steps to Getting Out of the Slush Pile,” presented by Deborah Raney, covers the five main writing problems that crop up whenever Deborah critiques a manuscript or judges writing contests. Fixing these five common issues can make the difference between a manuscript that lands in the slush pile and one that makes it to an editor’s desk . . . and ultimately into the bookstore. The fixes are surprisingly easy to learn and may apply to your work. (Fiction)
