Manuscript Assessment

If you need professional, expert editorial analysis of your writing, at whatever stage of development it may be at, then a manuscript assessment could be what you need. We’ve worked with authors from a diverse range of backgrounds and will evaluate an opening extract, a full manuscript, a short story, or short story collection, offering gentle but honest feedback and insight.

You will receive a detailed written report, analysing strengths and weaknesses, character, plot, structure and prose style – among whatever other issues need addressing. Each report is unique and tailored in response to the individual writer’s work. Suggested improvements will be given and advice regarding redrafting. Your report will also assess the likelihood of commercial publication and avenues you might wish to explore in the field. If you’d like to see a sample report or have any questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
