Editorial services

Manuscript assessment

Providing a 2–4,000-word written report on your manuscript – looking at the overarching plot, writing style, pacing, viewpoint, characterisation, and where the book sits in the market.

Fee: from £90 per 10,000 words


Carefully studying a complete manuscript, searching for inconsistencies while fact-checking every detail, paying attention to style, tone, grammar/spelling along the way.

Fee: from £120 per 10,000 words

Submission reading

Reading through agented and open submissions, searching for the next big hit, or scouring entries for competition winners – our readers have experience across the board.

Fee: on request


One of our editors is also an experienced (and extremely discreet) ghostwriter, specialising in non-fiction and memoir – available for both full-length projects and those where just a few final tweaks and tightenings are required.

Fee: from £3,000-£14,000

Developmental editing

Working with the author's manuscript to develop it into a complete work – offering direction on the overarching plot, tone of writing, characterisation, accuracy and craft.

Fee: from £150 per 10,000 words


Ensuring your manuscript is accurate and clean, and working to house style, with thorough checks completed on all elements before your project is ready to be sent to press.

Fee: from £102 per 10,000 words

Synopsis and cover letter

The power of a cover letter and synopsis should never be underestimated – we offer thorough advice on the content and layout of both, and can suggest a few appropriate agents to contact too.

Fee: from £100


Tackling a full manuscript can be a wee bit daunting. We regularly mentor both established and new writers, to help turn those first drafts into publishable books, with advice on structuring, characterisation, story arcs and more, as well as line-by-line edits.

Fee: from £90 per session
