WHAT IS THE LA MANUSCRIPT MARKET?
The market showcases and premieres new, unique, diverse works of fiction and nonfiction in the manuscript stage (for fiction) or the proposal and sample stage (for nonfiction). The works chosen are unpublished but ready to be presented to agents, publishers, and others in the publishing industry. The Market’s main goal is to help writers find agents and publishers and want to help their work reach a wider audience. If an author’s work needs an agent, we hope they can find them here. If an author has an agent but the work needs a publisher, we hope that exposure occurs here. And if an author wishes to self-publish, we provide resources to make it happen. Whether works are sold at the market itself or connections are made that result in later relationships, the Market is a platform for exciting new writing to find an audience.
