An editor’s report is a detailed analysis of your manuscript up to 10 pages long covering various aspects of novel writing: structure, story shape, plot, character development, prose and literary technique.

The report will also include recommendations for moving forward.

How long does it take to review a Manuscript?

The process usually takes between one week to three weeks depending on the quality of the work, or the length of the manuscript.
