    Manuscript Critique

    With a manuscript critique, WriteByNight will read through your manuscript and provide detailed written commentary to identify what’s working, what’s not, what could be improved, and how. We’ll then meet with you to discuss the feedback in depth and make recommendations for next steps.

    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.

    “[WriteByNight] was able to find problems that I knew existed and couldn’t quite articulate. [They] helped me sculpt my story in the best of possible ways, and for that I am eternally grateful.” — June Day, Austin, Texas

    To get your manuscript in shape for publication, WriteByNight will edit line by line for fluidity, clarity, grammar, and usage (commonly referred to as line editing), and will provide suggestions for improving the overall effectiveness of the piece (commonly referred to as content editing).

    We’re careful to retain your unique voice and style so your writing will sound like you, but optimized for readability and maximum appeal.

    As a final step before you publish your book, WriteByNight will comb your manuscript for spelling mistakes, improper punctuation, typos, and formatting errors.

    Proofreading is the final necessary step in preparing your manuscript for submission to agents, publishers, contests, or even friends and family.

    “As I reach the final editing stages on my next book I will again turn to the folks at WriteByNight for their copyediting and proofreading skills.” — Michael Jarvis, Miami, Florida
