In manuscript evaluation, an editor/manuscript evaluator reads your manuscript and prepares a broad, comprehensive assessment report. You receive specific advice on how to develop a stronger narrative, better pacing, and more engaging characters.

Because the manuscript evaluation is a big picture analysis of your manuscript, it should be done first before getting into the nuts and bolts of a comprehensive edit.

We offer comprehensive manuscript evaluation services as follows:

Fiction and Non-Fiction Manuscripts

Up to 20,000 words – Ksh.11,600

Over 20,000 words – Ksh.0.60 per word

Minimum number of words is 20,000 words, this means that for shorter manuscripts, charges will be based on minimum words.

Standard manuscript evaluation includes a quick look at the following areas:

  • Synopsis, target audience (can it sell?)
  • Characters (how well built are they?)
  • Themes (are they relevant to the target audience?)
  • Quality of content (how well structured, imaginative, and intriguing)
    Language (how appealing is it?)
  • Strengths and weaknesses of the manuscript.
