• Beta Reading, Critique & Writing Workshops

    Finished a draft of your first chapter, your full book, or other writing project? Our beta reading, critique, and writing workshop services are ideal if you need fresh eyes on your writing.

    With a beta read, critique, or writing workshop from WriteByNight, you’ll get expert feedback from experienced writers and voracious readers who will tell you what’s working, what isn’t, and why.

    We consider large craft issues such as plot, structure, setting, characterization, point of view, voice, and style, as well as small issues such as consistency, repetition, and descriptive details.

     

    Beta Reading

    The one thing WriteByNight’s coaches love more than writing is reading. Our beta reading service offers a fresh pair of eyes on your first chapter, your whole book, or any other writing project, and then we’ll meet with you for 60 minutes to discuss what’s working and what isn’t (and why).

    Better yet, it’s an interactive discussion, not a one-way lecture. Pick your beta reader’s brain to get all of your questions answered, whether about the book itself, its best path to publication, or any of the steps in between.

    Request a free consultation today to choose your beta reader.

    Manuscript Critique

    With a manuscript critique, a WriteByNight coach will beta read your first chapter, your whole book, or any other writing project, and provide detailed written commentary throughout. Then we’ll meet with you for 60 minutes to discuss what’s working, what isn’t, and why.

    In other words, everything you get with a beta read, but with the addition of notes throughout.

    Manuscript Critique-Plus

    With a critique-plus, your WriteByNight writing coach will take the deepest of deep dives into your first chapter, your full book, or any other writing project.

    First your coach will do a beta read to become familiar with your story and your style. Then your coach will read your manuscript a second time while providing detailed written commentary throughout.

    That’s right, your WriteByNight coach will read your chapter, book, or other writing project twice! Once for comprehension and familiarity, then a second time to offer written feedback from a place of total awareness of what’s to come.

    You’ll have a 60-minute interactive discussion with your coach to talk about this feedback and next steps, then you’ll receive your manuscript with its detailed notes.

    Request a free consultation today to receive your manuscript critique-plus.

     

    Writing Workshop

    If you want four or more fresh eyes on your manuscript, we’ll help you build your very own writing workshop. Two or more WriteByNight coaches will beta read or critique your manuscript and then meet with you to discuss in a group setting.

    More readers, more feedback, and more opportunities to get your questions answered!
