The Forge: Narrative Assessment

The Forge – Narrative assessment service for fiction writers

This service is ideal for early-draft manuscripts, partial manuscripts, and novel outlines. We provide you with a thorough analysis, giving special attention to your hook, structure, plot, character arcs, and overall narrative appeal. 

Narrative assessment is a lower-cost alternative to developmental editing. We don't mark up your manuscript with scene-by-scene commentary. Instead, we focus on a deep reading for big-picture issues. You will receive a professional critique outlining the strengths of your manuscript as well as professional advice on where to take your next draft. This service is ideal for authors who are working through material that they plan to rewrite extensively. 

Starting from $0.006 USD per word.
