• Manuscript Consultation Services

    Manuscript consultation services are ideal for those who are nearing or have completed a full draft of a manuscript.

    Submit your novel, memoir, nonfiction book, young adult book, children’s book, short story, essay, magazine article, screenplay, stageplay, or poetry for professional review and improvement, and/or to prepare for traditional publication or self-publication. Critique, editing, and proofreading may be requested individually or in combination.

     

    Critique

    WriteByNight provides detailed commentary throughout your manuscript in order to identify what’s working, what’s not, what could be improved, and how. We consider large craft issues such as plot, structure, setting, characterization, point of view, voice and style, as well as smaller issues such as consistency, repetition, and descriptive details. We’ll then meet with you to discuss the feedback in depth, and make recommendations for next steps.

    Includes:

    • Preliminary Q&A to determine your needs, goals, preferences, and expectations
    • Full read-through of the manuscript
    • Detailed editorial feedback and commentary throughout the manuscript
    • Meeting to review and discuss the work completed

     

    $35/hr. for critique + $99/1-hour meeting

    • Preliminary Q&A to determine your needs, goals, preferences, and expectations
    • Full edit with detailed notes throughout the manuscript
