Short Story Review
$250 - $450
“Anecdotes don’t make good stories. Generally I dig down underneath them so far that the story that finally comes out is not what people thought their anecdotes were about.” -Alice Munro
There is a saying that writing is rejection. That's true: everyone has been rejected many times. But over time those form rejections should turn into personal rejections and eventually become acceptances. Do you feel stuck in your journey to publication? If so, let us help! If you're submitting your work for publication you know that only the top 1 - 2% of all submissions are accepted by literary journals and literary agents. Those are long odds, and we want to help you improve them.
After one of our instructors finishes reading your story, they'll write an in-depth letter outlining the strengths and weaknesses. We'll offer more than just specific advice on how to improve the story, though; we'll provide a road map forward so that you can survive the next draft and forge a path to publication.
Included in this package:
Thorough constructive feedback
Line edit and editorial memo
Follow-up meeting to be arranged in collaboration with the consultant.
A discussion of goals and submission process
