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 the second cycle (Q3 2019) will be open from 1 to 31 Aug 2019. More details here: singlitstation.com/MASS
