Critique Service

We provide critique services for books, short stories, poems and screenplays.

What is a critique?

The report will aim to comment on narrative, characterisation, plot, pace, dialogue and style.

Please note that if you are looking for proofreading, this is a different service which can be found by clicking here.

If you’d like a critique of a short story or if you’ve written a book, please email a sample and a note of the total word count. We can then send you a quote.

If you’d like a poetry critique, please email a sample and the number of poems.

If you have written a book and would like feedback before you send your first three chapters off to a publisher, we offer a critique service for the first three chapters (max 10,000 words), synopsis (max 2 pages) and cover letter. Again, please email a sample chapter and we can provide a quote.
