Manuscript Assessment

This is a cost-effective and highly useful first step if you haven’t had a professional assess your work yet.

Cost: For a manuscript of 90,000 words, the cost is $650. Prices vary depending on the length of the manuscript, so please contact Alexandra for a quote.


Developmental /
structural editing

This is an intensive edit that looks at the major structural issues of a work: the plot, characterisation, narrative cohesion, pace and so on.

While at this stage there is no copyediting, Alexandra offers thorough line edits and marks up areas that need work, as well as provides an in-depth report that looks at the potential areas of development.

Cost: The cost varies depending on the length of the manuscript, so please contact Alexandra for a quote.
