Manuscript appraisal

  • We offer manuscript appraisal on all fiction, non-fiction and poetry manuscripts. This service gives writers an overall appraisal of the entire manuscript which is written up as a report, offering advice on publish ability.

Entries close 31st of January 2020. Winner will be notified by the 9th of February 2020 by email. Good Luck!

Structural editing

  • The role of a structural editor is to take an impartial and rigorous look at the entire work, identifying strengths and weaknesses and suggesting strategies to clarify and improve the manuscript.
  • In fictional works structural editing looks at elements such as characterisation, theme and plotting, realisation of setting, writing style and suitability for target audience.
  • In non-fiction works elements include narratorial voice, theme and structure, writing style and suitability for target audience.
  • Poetry editing looks both at the strengths and weaknesses of individual poems, their place in the overall collection and ways to order the poems.

Copy editing

  • At the copy editing stage, editors focus on grammar, spelling, punctuation and the mechanics of style. We check for consistency, continuity and clarity.

Proofreading & Revision

  • Proofreading of an edited manuscript includes checking that the document is ready to be published, that the house style is followed, that all amendments and corrections have been inserted and that punctuation and spelling are correct.


Leonie Tyle and Catherine Bateson are available to give workshops on editing, self-editing, project management and getting published - check out our Workshops page for a more comprehensive list of workshops available.
