Private Consultations (Mystery Writers Conference)


Optional 30-minute private consultations are available for $95. You may use that time to discuss a concept or proposal, or to have a faculty member review and provide feedback on a portion of a manuscript you have submitted. A list of faculty members available for consultations can be found below.

Please select three members of the available faculty and note their names with your submission, ranking them in order of preference. We ask for three faculty members per consultation, so that if you’re having multiple consultations, you’ve noted several choices for each. (For example, if you’re having 2 consultations, please list 3 faculty members for each, for a total of 6.) We will do our very best to accommodate your preference.


We encourage you to purchase your consultation and send your submission prior to arriving at the conference, as this will help ensure that we are able to schedule you to meet with one of your top faculty choices.

Submitted material must be double-spaced and should not exceed 20 pages. While not necessary, a cover letter can be helpful in letting your designated faculty member know if there’s something specific you hope he/she will address during your consultation.

Please email your submission to Kathryn Petrocelli at 
bpconferences@bookpassage.com.

If you plan to use your consultation to instead discuss an idea, please email your list of three faculty members to meet with in order of preference. Please send that list to bpconferences@bookpassage.com.


If you decide to arrange a consultation after you have arrived at the conference, you are welcome to do so! Please bring two (2) copies of your material with you to the conference, and we will let you know which faculty members still have availability.
