An in-depth review of your full manuscript with a focus on plot, pacing, characterization, and style. I will help you bring out your authorial voice and refine your story through thoughtful review and examination. I will evaluate your manuscript for plot, pacing, structure, worldbuilding, and characterization.
I will note the strengths and weaknesses of your writing, the themes and topics it explores, and make recommendations as to how you might improve your manuscript.
If your manuscript contains themes of sexual trauma, queer identities, or other content described on my sensitivity editing page, please let me know prior to engaging me for editing services. Pricing will vary if I need to evaluate sensitive content alongside other writing elements.
What I Provide
After reading your manuscript, I will provide you with:
- A fully annotated copy of your manuscript noting both positives and negatives.
- Final thoughts and overview in a 1 to 3 page document (depending on the length of your manuscript), analyzing the the manuscript from a holistic perspective.
My feedback will be somewhat similar to one of my more in depth reviews (example 1, example 2), except geared towards you as a writer rather than towards potential readers. Feedback will be more in depth and will note specific scenes and examples within the text. I will note the strengths and weaknesses of your manuscript, the themes and topics it explores, and make recommendations as to how you might improve the story.
Pricing and Payment
Please contact me with details of your manuscript for pricing. If you are economically disadvantaged, I am willing to be flexible where payment is concerned. Please include details of your situation when submitting, and we can chat about what will work for you.
Before You Submit
Please ensure that your draft is free of major grammatical or formatting errors. If you have specific concerns, please communicate those in advance so I can focus on them in particular.
