This appraisal service is suitable for authors who are seeking advice on a completed, or part-completed, piece of writing. This new version of our service (developed especially for Greatvine) is offered at a reduced rate (usual rate £75) and is for authors who specifically want Louise Jordan (Managing Editor of The Writers' Advice Centre) to appraise their work.
Work can be for any age group and can include illustrations. No written report will be produced. Instead feedback will be given during a telephone consultancy session with Louise, using her Greatvine 'Speak Now' advice line*. Feedback discussed in this session will include presentation, targeting, subject matter, theme & plotting, structure & style, characterisation & dialogue, viewpoint, approach, choosing a publisher and a suggested list of further reading.
Advantages of this particular service are,
1. It is offered at a reduced rate.
2. Louise Jordan is guaranteed to be your editor.
3. Specific queries and concerns can be addressed.
4. It is much faster - just two weeks as opposed to two months.
