Manuscript Assessment Scheme (MASS)

Manuscript Assessment Scheme (MASS) is an initiative by the National Arts Council, managed by Sing Lit Station. It is a subsidised scheme for deserving literary manuscripts to receive detailed professional feedback from The Literary Consultancy (TLC), a UK-based editorial consultancy service.

MASS will be held across two cycles (held in Q1 and Q3 2019). It will accept manuscripts by writers at any stage of their career, regardless of publication history. It will also accept manuscripts in the hands of publishers seeking additional feedback for their Singaporean writers. Manuscripts in three genres (poetry, fiction, non-fiction) and of various lengths will be considered for submission.

Submissions for Q1 2019 will be open from 1 Feb 2019 to 30 Mar 2019. More details here:


Manuscript Bootcamp 2019 (Poetry)

For 2019’s edition, Manuscript Bootcamp expands its reach with the Manuscript Assessment Scheme (MASS). Through MASS, shortlisted applicants of the Bootcamp will gain access to detailed feedback from The Literary Consultancy (TLC) based in the UK. Finalists will be able to choose the best of both worlds—feedback from TLC, as well as a closer, more intimate look at the work in Manuscript Bootcamp. 

At Bootcamp, your work will be taken apart and put back together by established Singapore-based writers, editors, academics and critics. Be prepared to give and take feedback of the highest quality in a challenging and collegial environment.

Submissions of poetry manuscripts will be open from 1 Feb 2019 to 30 Mar 2019, for a Bootcamp on 2–4 Aug 2019. More details here:
