What is a SPEED PASS? A SPEED PASS allows a nonmember to submit a single manuscript OR query letter (not both) at any time for a rating + guaranteed comments*, and it will be returned in less than 7 days' time. Currently, there is no limit to the number of SPEED PASSES a user can purchase, but we reserve the right to limit the sale of these if our current submissions volume warrants the restriction. We will also notify users of any scheduled closures to SPEED PASS submissions, and communicate to the best of our ability if there is a problem with a submission or delay. Speed passes expire at the end of the year purchased. It is best to purchase a SPEED PASS the day before or day of submitting your manuscript, as that helps us verify your purchase quicker and gets your manuscript sent out to judges in a super-speedy fashion.
SPEED PASS Submission guidelines: You must submit your manuscript from the email address you used to purchase your Speed pass OR you must copy and paste the receipt into the body of your email when you submit your manuscript. Please remember to follow all standard RYS submission guidelines which can be found HERE. You must put the word SPEED PASS plus the title and genre of your manuscript into the subject line of your email in order to guarantee a 7 day turnaround. *Note: If your submission is a query letter, please replace the title with the words QUERY LETTER instead.
*All submissions include a rating plus guaranteed comments only. This is not a line-edit critique. By Submitting to Rate Your Story you agree that you have read and understand our Terms & Conditions listed HERE.
