Manuscript Consultant: 


Need to polish your writing? Want feedback on your first draft? I offer authors a personal consultation about their literary work in the following genres: poetry, fiction, nonfiction, memoir, or biography prior to the work being submitted for publication. I provide a close reading of the manuscript, a detailed assessment of the work and the organization of the submission, as well as suggestions about how to make the manuscript successful in today’s publishing environment. I will note some spelling/grammatical errors found, but the consultation does not guarantee proofreading.

Will reply to queries within two business days. 


Must submit ten pages of manuscript for review (at no charge) before job is accepted. $2 per page for proofreading. Minimum: $30 per project.
