The NZSA CompleteMS manuscript assessment programme is now open for applications. Thirteen successful applicants will receive essential critical feedback on an advanced work, moving it closer to publication.

Applications open 1 March. Deadline for printed applications to be received is 4pm, 28 May
Here’s what two writers had to say about their CompleteMS assessment.
"Thanks to everyone involved, and especially to my assessor, for what was one of the highlights of my year and an experience that really helped frame my writing year and will hopefully springboard me onto a more finished product."
"After the lone process of writing a novel it was so refreshing to have an experienced eye on my work. It really breathed life back into the redrafting process. I am excited to see what happens next.”
To apply for this professional development you need to be a member of the NZ Society of Authors, membership is $125 per annum. NZSA encourages applications from Māori, Pacific and Asian writers.
