Do you have a complete manuscript draft in need of fresh eyes, a careful read, and constructive content feedback? Carnegie’s Manuscript Consulting Service may be for you.
Drafts should be at or near completion and should be submitted electronically as Word documents (double-spaced, 12-point standard font). Manuscripts will be returned electronically in the form of a detailed summary, and in some cases, the consultant’s margin notes, approximately two weeks to one month after submission.
We will do our best to match you with a manuscript consultant. However, we cannot guarantee a match due to genre constraints, limited number of consultants, and limited availability of slots per consultant. To see manuscript consultant bios, click here.
The Manuscript Consulting service offers big-picture content editing, NOT copy editing. It is offered as a cut-and-dry, single electronic exchange and is different from the Carnegie Center’s Writing Mentor service, which pairs writers with mentors in a manner designed to encourage in-person and/or ongoing conversation.
