Literary Arts

North Shore Academy of the Arts is excited about our Literary Arts Department, where opportunities to be exposed to the world of writing abound. Adult writing classes taught by MFA instructors, editors that fly in from publishing houses around the country, children’s poetry classes, guest author visits, on the spot critiques on manuscripts – are just some of the exciting programs NSAA offers in the literary arts.

Willow Words critique service

Are you a writer in need of some input on your manuscripts? Literary Agent, published author and teacher offers critique services.

Submission Critique: This is an emailed written critique on the presentation of your submission, with comments on your cover letter and the formatting of your submission. If needed, line edits will be provided on your cover letter. If applicable, a general comment will be shared as to why Willow Words may not have offered representation or may include a suggestion on how to move forward. This service is recommended for new writers and not necessary for those with experience in the industry.

Manuscript Critique: This service includes an emailed, narrative critique, a marked up manuscript, and a 30 minute phone conference about your manuscript. Additional fees will apply if you’d like further input into revisions.

To schedule a critique service, contact Sheri: To learn more, visit Willow Words works in cooperation with North Shore Academy of the Arts, Inc.
