Critiques

I'll never submit another manuscript without a professional critique (or manuscript review). My critique partners are incredible, but a paid critique changes a good manuscript into something special.

A critique helps you consider elements of your story you may overlooked. I love helping other writers take their manuscript to the next level in preparation for submission. My writing critiques are caring but critical.

Writers, before you get a professional critique, you may be interested in using some of these tips and resources for children's writers!

Work-for-Hire Submission Package Critique

Send publishers a WFH submission packet to get writing assignments. The packet typically includes a query letter, resume, and two writing samples. (Learn more about writing for educational publishers here.)
Standard WFH Package Critique, $125
The Standard Critique includes two pages of notes about your query letter, resume, and two writing samples (up to four pages each). Additional comments are included in your documents. 
Crafting and Support WFH Package Critique, $175
The Crafting Critique provides support to help you create your cover letter and resume. I also assist you in choosing your two strongest writing samples (with critiques) to include in your writing packet. We also communicate with a phone call, video chat, or additional emails. 

Picture Book, Middle Grade, and Proposal Critiques

My picture book, middle grade nonfiction, and proposal critiques include strengths and weaknesses, structure, development, and more. In addition to specific feedback in your manuscript you also get a two-page letter with thoughtful notes and comments. Fees start at $100 for a four-page (double-spaced, 12 font) manuscript.
