CompleteMS suits writers who have completed a manuscript through a number of drafts and require the objective view of an experienced assessor to provide a constructive critique. More
Here’s what 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.”
“I feel the assessor has shone a light on the issues with my manuscript that were holding me back. I couldn’t see it clearly because I had got caught up in the details but the honest and also encouraging summary has shown me what I need to work on. I knew it wasn’t quite right and now I know how to fix it.”
” From this day forth I will always use an assessor early in a project.”
“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.”
We encourage Māori, Pacific and Asian writers to apply for this programme.
Applications open 1 March. Deadline for printed copy of applications to be received at NZSA office is 4pm, 28 May
