Assessments
A preliminary assessment is a great way to get some input on
your work before investing in an expensive edit or a full
assessment. It will equip you with guidelines and suggestions, so
you can fine-tune your own writing before taking the next step.

A preliminary assessment provides you with the following:
 
  • (Fiction) A concise report outlining the strengths and
weaknesses of your submission in the areas of plot,
structure, conflict, characters, point of view, writing style,
dialogue, setting and overall tone.

  • (Non-fiction) A concise report outlining the strengths and
    weaknesses of your submission in the areas of content
    organisation, target audience and language.

  • (Fiction and non-fiction) An extensive copyedit on one full
page of your manuscript. This will show you specific
techniques for editing, smoothing and tightening your own
work.

To submit your work for a preliminary assessment, please send
your details via the
Contact page.

I will email you with submission guidelines and specific questions
about your work.

The cost of a preliminary assessment is $150.00 based on a
synopsis and the first 3000 words of your work.

A full manuscript assessment is a more in-depth look at your
entire manuscript. This is often a positive next step once you
have applied changes after your preliminary evaluation.

For this you will receive the following.

weaknesses of your manuscript in the areas of general
interest or story concept, plot, structure, conflict, pacing,
consistency,characters, point of view, dialogue, setting,
writing style and overall tone.

    weaknesses of your submission in the areas of content,
    organisation, target audience, accessibility, tone and
language.

  • (Fiction and non-fiction) An extensive copyedit on two full
pages of your manuscript and a list of specific writing tips.
This will show you techniques for editing, smoothing and
tightening your own work.

  • You will also receive a copy of your manuscript with specific
comments and suggestions marked within your text. These
will highlight more specific areas of concern and offer
suggestions for improvement if needed.
