Rate Your Story *Guest Guru* Schedule / Membership Perk (and some Speedpasses, too!)

Each Month at least *two* Guest Gurus will take a look at four manuscripts each and give feedback to lucky members who submit that month. This feedback will not be anonymous. On months where there is an editor or agent featured, we will provide wishlists (if applicable) so Members may target submissions. 

You should submit as usual, unless otherwise noted, however, please note that submissions will be chosen on a first-come, first fit basis until all slots are filled, so it may be a good idea to submit in the beginning of a month IF you have appropriate material for that Author/Editor/Agent. 

Also, please note - YOU MUST NOTE IN THE BODY OF YOUR SUBMISSION THAT YOU WISH TO BE CONSIDERED FOR THE GUEST GURU. This is very important as we will not forward without your permission.
