The Manuscript Critique is the ideal option for those seeking editorial guidance on a book or another extended project. Your writing mentor provides both general analysis of your manuscript and focused revision suggestions, and then responds to your revised drafts in detail. The goal is simple: to connect you with the practical wisdom of an experienced writing mentor to get your writing project where it needs to be—and at $695 for up to six months of mentoring, for much less than the cost of a freelance editorial consultation.
Each manuscript critique covers a maximum of 30,000 words for prose pieces, and 30 pages for poetry. A single session cannot possibly cover a full-length book manuscript. However, we believe it makes sense to begin with a portion of your manuscript so you can get a good sense of what the editing process can do for your project. If you find that it has been beneficial and you would like to submit more of the book for critiquing, you may sign up for additional sessions at a reduced rate.
