A Dynamic Text Manuscript Assessment (also known as a ‘structural’ or ‘substantive’ edit) appraises the narrative structure, content and style of a manuscript. The MS Assessment includes analysis of authorial tone and voice, pacing, plot, character strength and development, point-of-view, pace, writing style, narrative, dialogue, presentation, length, use of research, readership and marketing or publishing possibilities.
A Manuscript Assessment does not include copy editing or proofreading, it provides professional advice on the big picture, not the detail of spelling, grammar and punctuation.
A Manuscript Assessment may reveal your work needs editing or proofreading, but it won’t provide this service for you.
We provide authors with a clear outline of their manuscript’s strengths and weakness to uncover your manuscript’s full potential with strengths and weaknesses detailed in a report of up to five (5) pages.
We require a cover letter and synopsis along with your manuscript when you upload it to out to our editors. This provides the opportunity to present the author with feedback on the presentation of the MS, synopsis and other details a publisher requires when the author is ready to submit to a publishing house.
