Manuscript critique

150 150 Writer and the Wolf Editorial

Also called a manuscript assessment, this is a big-picture review of your novel focusing on the fundamental story elements like plot, structure, character and genre. It won’t include actual edits or comments within the manuscript itself but will rather come in the form of several pages of feedback and suggestions to improve your story.

To see what my manuscript critiques involve, take a look at my Editing Services page.
