Level 1 Manuscript Feedback (short manuscripts up to 30,000 words)


Sometimes called an Editorial Appraisal or Editorial Assessment, manuscript feedback is an analysis and professional report on the strengths of your work, identifying areas for improvement.

Send us your short manuscript (up to 30,000 words) plus a one-page synopsis and covering letter briefly outlining your aims for your work.

We will make a detailed editorial assessment on the entire manuscript, specific to the genre in which you're working.

We'll examine and report back to you on your writing, looking at specific areas such as the structure, and the commercial potential of the work, along with a list of recommendations and advice about any areas of your manuscript which we feel may benefit from further improvement.

VAT at the standard rate will be added during the checkout process if you are a UK taxpayer.

  • A summary of the strengths of your manuscript.

  • An overview of the likely commercial appeal of your work, including target readership.
