Manuscript appraisal and development

You’ve written a first draft, so you’re ready to send it off to the publisher, right?


Sending your manuscript out now is like sending your baby out on her own to explore the world…before she can crawl. First drafts usually require a lot of revision before they’re even ready for editing. An independent expert reader can tell you what’s working and what needs further development.

C Word Creative offers a manuscript appraisal and development service specialising in adult fiction and memoir, to help you turn that first draft into a memorable manuscript ready for submission.

This is one of our most popular services, with clients telling us our thoughtful and inspiring feedback has improved the quality of their writing and helped them secure publishing contracts. See for yourself, on our customer testimonials page.
