In an effort to help offset the systematic inequality and white privilege in the literary industry, during the month of January, Literary Mama editor-in-chief Amanda Jaros will offer free editorial feedback on up to 1,000 words of writing to people who donate $25 or more to nonprofit organizations in the literary arts that support people traditionally underrepresented or marginalized, or that support literacy and literature for children.
To participate, email LMinfo@literarymama.com with a clear photo or screenshot of the receipt in the body of the email. No attachments will be opened.
When the receipt is received, you will get an email asking to send up to 1,000 words. Please send only fiction or nonfiction; no poetry at this time. Anyone may participate.
Response time for feedback depends on how many submissions are received.
