Are you a beginner writer, looking for advice? A published novelist in need of full ms critique prior to submission? Somewhere in between and searching for advice on fiction or non-fiction? Why not investigate The Lorraine Mace Writing Critique Service?
Writers receive a report covering manuscript presentation, title, opening paragraphs, story resolution, dialogue, characterisation and an overall assessment. They also get back their original document marked up with track changes to show comments and advice directly on the text. The critiques cover not only where improvements are needed, but also detail what it is that writers are doing right! This is something that is often overlooked when work is appraised, but it is an important aspect in a writer’s progress.
Details for submission can be found on the website: http://www.lorrainemace.com/index_files/critiques.htm
