Before sending out a manuscript to editors or agents, writers can benefit from a thorough, in-depth critique of their work. A manuscript consult includes a close reading of your work and a thorough letter analyzing the strengths and weaknesses, including discussion of story arc, plot trajectory, character development and believability, language and voice, and suspense. The most important threads of your story will be drawn out and discussed, with suggestions for how to sharpen the tension and highlight the central conflict. A manuscript consultation will give your novel the best chance of securing that dream agent. Ready to get started?
