Manuscript assessment

You've written something that is not quite ready to pass to a publisher and you'd like to get some advice about how it's going. Get a detailed report on relevant aspects of your writing project including:

  • point of view

  • narrative voice

  • dialogue

  • characterisation

  • plot development

  • spelling and grammar

  • general structure.


Get suggestions on how you can improve your writing. You will also receive research and marketability ideas for your work (acceptance by a publisher not guaranteed). Turnaround time is between six and eight weeks.


Please provide the following:

  • an electronic copy of the document 

  • a one-page synopsis of the work

  • a short biography of yourself.


Please note that this is an assessment of the work not an edit. Your work will need an edit at the next stage.
