Is a Manuscript Evaluation Right
A manuscript evaluation is like a developmental edit that has been scaled down. The approach is to identify the most pressing issues in either the plot structure or storytelling style and provide an extensive feedback letter that discusses how you can address these issues.
This is a less costly critique that highlights areas of concern inside of your story that should be addressed for revision. If you’re concerned something about the plot is not working and will stop your words from resonating with your reader, a manuscript evaluation may be right for you.
For manuscripts that are raw, incomplete, or appear to have extensive issues requiring a more intense review, we will recommend a more appropriate service such as coaching sessions or a developmental edit.
