Manuscript Critique

Rates - $1.60 per double spaced page ($50.00 min.)

Special Offer:

10% Off our most popular package!
Hard Copy Edit + Critique
$4.60 per mss page

Don't waste time and money sending a poorly written manuscript to publishers, literary agents, or producers. If it isn't in proper format, if the first page doesn't really grab them, and if it isn't virtually free of errors -- they won't even read past the first page!

Make sure your work stands out from the hundreds of other manuscripts lying on the Submission Editor's desk. Have it professionally evaluated first!

With our manuscript critique service, you will receive feedback on all of the following elements:

  • Proper format
  • Punctuation, spelling, grammar & sentence structure
  • Characterization
  • Strength of storyline/plot
  • Setting
  • Imagery
  • Foreshadowing
  • Word choice/tone
  • Strength of themes
  • Appropriateness of dialogue/dialect
  • Appropriateness of point of view/narration
  • How to strengthen weak areas
  • How to market your manuscript based on current trends
  • And more . . .

For more information, see our manuscript critique procedures and part of our evaluation form.

"Thank you for your thorough, descriptive, and concise edit/evaluation. It amazes me that it is all covered so well -- so quickly. It takes me weeks to read a novel, let alone read and edit and evaluate (so much red ink!). My compliments to you. Your professionalism shows. And obviously you don't shy from hard work." -- Dave Meadows, author of the novel One Field Had Rain

NOTE: All fee quotes are in US currency and are based on the standard manuscript submission format: 8 1/2" x 11" page, double spaced, 1" margins, 12 point standard font, appropriate header, and page numbers centered at the bottom.
