⇩ DEVELOPMENTAL MATERIALS AND QUERY LETTERS

How you present your work is essential. Piquing the interest of a potential backer or agent is of great importance. It’s often difficult for writers to sell themselves or to distill their own work down for presentation purposes, especially if they've been in development for ages. I can help assure that your pitch documents best represent your project and you as a writer.

AUTHORS


⇩ MANUSCRIPT ASSESSMENT

As a writer, you can become so close to your material that you stop being able to see it clearly. An objective eye can really help. A professional editor can tell you if the structure holds together, the story makes sense, the dialogue and pace are effective, and so much more...

This service provides:

  • A detailed written evaluation of your manuscript with an overview of its strengths and weaknesses, including suggestions for improvements.
  • Follow up e-mail correspondence (or phone call) to answer any questions you may have regarding the above.

Reports generally take between 4-6 weeks but the specific time-frame will be agreed upon before we begin. The average report length is between 5 and 10 pages.

⇩ MANUSCRIPT DEVELOPEMENT AND MENTORSHIPS

If you are seeking long term support, I occasionally take on writers for mentorships focusing on individual projects, complete bodies of work and career goals.
