Standard-length Manuscript Feedback Report


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

Send us your short manuscript (up to 80,000 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 whole manuscript, specific to the genre in which you're working.

We'll examine and report back to you on areas of your writing, such as 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 a UK taxpayer.


What do I get?


  • A summary of the strengths of your manuscript.

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

  • An analysis of the writing style, pace, structure, characterisation, dialogue, and setting.

  • A summary of the areas which may need improvement.
