    Our Full Critique and Editing service is the most comprehensive we know of. We read and assess your work, furnishing you with constructive criticism along the way. We will comment where necessary on your plot, dialogue, characterisation, style, presentation etc., letting you know where your writing succeeds and where it fails, constantly suggesting improvements. We critique as we go line by line, paragraph by paragraph and so you are soon able to build up a picture of the main areas of your manuscript that require most work.

    As well as this, the service includes professional line and copy editing, in which attention is paid to all aspects of grammar, spelling, punctuation and the clarity and flow of your sentence structure. Finally, we will suggest any potential markets and/or agents, and offer hands-on assistance with your covering letter and synopsis.
