I will provide detailed and constructive feedback on your work in a written report and will also return your manuscript to you, marked with my annotations. The two documents are designed to complement each other, along with our discussion (see below).
Of course, each writer will have different strengths and areas that need work. Therefore it’s difficult to say exactly how long your report might be and what it might cover. However, each critique is usually somewhere between 10 and 30 pages, and will focus in detail on the particular issues raised by your submission. These can include things such as: plot and characterisation; structure; writing techniques such as ‘Show Don’t Tell’; dialogue; narrative voice; how to add detail and texture and sub-plotting.
If necessary, I will also provide advice on layout, punctuation and grammar. I always use examples from your own book to illustrate my points.
We will then have the opportunity to discuss each point and any other issues raised, during our face-to-face meeting
