Manuscript Consulting

You've just finished writing your manuscript and you’d like to get professional feedback. Or your novel hangs out on your computer desktop, but you don’t know how to get back to it.  

First, congratulations. Completing a full draft is a tremendous achievement. I’m here to help you take the next step: revise this first draft.

OK, but how?

I carefully read your manuscript then offer you thoughtful editorial comments, specific suggestions and goal-oriented feedback. In this two to three-page letter, I identify the strengths and weaknesses of your manuscript, provide a thorough analysis of the characters, themes and narrative arcs of your story, as well as raise questions that will guide you on the revision path.

The goal here is to help you revise your manuscript in depth. Respecting your intentions as a writer is a top priority. My suggestions are meant to broaden your writing horizon and invite you to see your book anew.

Once you’ve received my feedback, you can schedule a one-hour consultation (hourly rate: 60euros). During this one-on-one meeting, we’ll discuss your manuscript, review the feedback I provided in my editorial letter and answer any questions you might have. And if you’d like to benefit from further one-on-one guidance on your manuscript, you can also schedule extra literary coaching sessions (subject to availability, more information on the Literary Coaching page).
