Manuscript Services

We will review your manuscript and provide general feedback, focusing on the big picture: overall structural issues, tone, narrative flow, etc. We will provide a written assessment of your work, what we feel it needs, what works, what doesn’t, and offering you suggestions for the next steps we advise you to take. This level of edit does not include any line editing, margin comments, or reworking of your text.

After you have reviewed your written assessment, we will be available to answer questions via email.

Price: $7/page; 100 page minimum*

We will review your manuscript and provide general feedback, focusing on the big picture. We will provide a written assessment of your work, what we feel it needs, what works, what doesn’t, and offer you suggestions for the next steps you should take. Additionally, this more intensive level of editing includes some line edits and margin comments. This deeper level of consultation often reveals recurrent issues in a text, including language and narration issues. The written assessment accompanying a Level Two analysis will include this feedback and offer explicit suggestions for revision.

Price: $9/page; 100 page minimum*

*As page length varies depending on formatting choices, we define a page as 250 words.

Intensive Therapy. This level of editing is for select projects that need a more serious overhaul. We will go through your manuscript and offer a full line edit. Through this detailed review, we will help you rework, and if necessary, rewrite, your manuscript. This is not a ghost writing service, but rather a strenuous edit of your work, showing you how to best restructure and/or rework your narrative and hone your language. We only offer this level of editorial work on select projects.

Price: TBD based on an initial assessment of your manuscript.*
