Children’s Picture Books and Early Readers

Our specialist Simona Sideri will critique children’s books of up to 1000 words for £100.00 with written notes and phone/Skype/Zoom feedback. A one hour follow up consultation is an additional £50.00. N.B. Children’s books have many additional factors including illustrations to take into account.

Feature length (120 pages) £250
Additional pages per page £2.00

Novel, non-fiction, autobiography
Editing a novel is a big time commitment for our tutors and also needs the writer to feel comfortable and confident with the level of editing and quality of feedback. We ask writers to pay an initial £50.00 consultation fee and submit a synopsis and extract of no more than 2000 words in total. We will return your work with notes. This will help both the editor and writer to decide if they can work together; it will also enable us to set the fee depending on how much input is required and how the writer wants to receive feedback. As a very rough guide 50,000 words will cost between £350 – 550 with every additional 10,000 costing £100 – 125.00. One hour face-to-face consultation (virtual or in person) £50.00. Second-read discount of 20%
