This is a great option if you have a partial or complete draft, and you’re not sure what direction to take next, or you want some objective thoughts on how it could be improved. I will read the manuscript carefully and respond with a letter evaluating the work’s strengths and weaknesses and offering concrete next steps in terms of revision and publication. (This is also a good option if you would like me to read your revised manuscript after doing the content edit.)

Time: 2 weeks, depending on project length and complexity.

Rate: $450 (for any project between 50K and 90K words; please inquire about shorter or longer projects. I am happy to look at and offer critiques on partials as low as 20 pages).
