How Write Right can help you
Write Right is a service for writers of fiction and nonfiction, offering manuscript assessment by experienced writers and editors, including:
- a close reading of the manuscript
- a detailed report on its strengths and weaknesses
- general and specific suggestions as to how it can be improved.
If we consider the manuscript to be of a publishable standard, we will provide a shortlist of possible publishers. If not, we may be able to suggest alternative approaches.
We have worked with authors on novels, autobiographies, travel books, short-story collections, children’s stories and even technical books.
Write Right is a member of the NZ Association of Manuscript Assessors.
What our clients say
“Thank you for your very professional and helpful assessment. It is clear to me what I must do and that is what I hoped for.”
“I like the fact that you are so specific, and have given me good starting points for work on the manuscript.”
“Thank you for your perceptive and extremely professional work.”
“The parcel came today and I have just read your assessment. I think it is first class. Very thorough piece of work. Everything you so painstakingly pointed out as needing attention was spot-on. It is exactly what I was looking for. Now that I have your assessment as a guide I can go over the manuscript again with confidence. Lots of work but this time it will be right.”
“Thank you for editing my novel manuscript and for your very helpful advice on how to proceed.”
“I have finished revising the text following the recommendations in your report. The comments were of great help. The main issue was point of view and this problem has been addressed. I have made all the other structural changes as suggested. It is hard to get a degree of distance from the text but I feel confident that the alterations are all worthwhile.”
“I much value your critique and have learnt much from your comments. I feel your comments have helped me to structure the material better.”
“Thanks for your report which arrived in today’s mail. It was really helpful and encouraging. Your comments made a lot of sense, and I’m about to get back to it and start a bit more pruning and editing.”
“The full assessment arrived today. Thank you, it’s hugely helpful. I can’t imagine why I couldn’t see the point of view thing before.”
“I found the process valuable, have done nearly all the changes you suggested, including moving the back to the front!”
