The Written Critique

The Written Critique takes the long view in helping writers of a sizable document, such as a book or creative piece.

We assist authors in clarifying goals, themes, structure, and plot, thereby strengthening the organization and cultivating the voice of the project. We provide a close reading of the existing work, with attention to content, organization, and shape.

Once this has been addressed, we then focus on content, suggesting solutions to blockages and guiding authors in foregrounding their strengths. We also provide concrete guidance for the trimming of any excess.

Choosing this option, you can expect a close reading and comprehensive, point-by-point essayistic critique. Our detailed critiques usually run several pages in length.
