Short Manuscript Feedback Report


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

If you're not ready to start your publishing journey yet, but simply require detailed informed feedback on your writing and perhaps some editorial advice, then a Short Manuscript Feedback Report is the perfect place to begin.

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 specific to the genre in which you're working.

We'll examine and report back to you on your writing, the structure and characterisation, 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 an EU or UK taxpayer.

  • A summary of the strengths of your manuscript.

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