Free narrative assessment?

Free narrative assessment anyone??

**Thanks to everyone who submitted. Emilie has now chosen her project for July, so the free assessment is no longer available**

 

The Darling Axe has an intern!

Emilie Serna is working with us this summer as she learns more about the craft, blogging, online marketing, and developmental editing. Watch out for her upcoming blog posts!

Emilie will take on a narrative assessment or "advanced beta read" starting in July. She will be working with Darling Axe senior editor David Brown as she analyzes a manuscript and prepares a feedback letter.

Interested in a free critique of your manuscript?

All you need to do is send a short pitch and ~1000-word excerpt to editors@darlingaxe.com. (Preference for works of fiction between 50-100k words.) Emilie will select her favourite from those who submit.

Here's her bio:
