Novel Edit & Consultation
$2000 (up to 70K Words)
“First, find out what your hero wants, then just follow him!” -Ray Bradbury
Put together, our instructors at Writing Workshops Dallas have decades of editing experience. Writers trust us with their manuscripts because we prize the sentence and the story. It doesn't matter if you're self-publishing or looking for a traditional publisher, readers will want the same thing: a great story that compels them to THE END.
We'll show you where your novel is succeeding and where it can be improved without being prescriptive. The end result will be a novel more likely to find its readership. Let us help you refine and revise your work before you self-publish or query literary agents. There is a saying that writing is rejection. If you're submitting your work for publication you know that only the top 1% of all novels are published. Even fewer self-published novels find a readership because they lack polish, a tightly crafted story, and characters that readers care about. With such long odds, let us help you improve them.
Included in this package:
Thorough constructive feedback
Line edit and editorial memo for full novel manuscript (up to 70k words)
Follow-up meeting to be arranged in collaboration with the consultant.
A discussion of goals and submission process (no revision)
If you don’t live in Dallas, no problem.
Fee: $2000 up to 70K Words
Note: We charge an industry-standard 2 cents for each additional word over 70K
