Feedback & Edits - open all year round
One-to-One Writer’s Workshop
£30 to include online meeting and written feedback
Whether you’re writing poetry, flash fiction, short stories or a novel – a trusted beta-reader is an invaluable asset. Send us your work up to four poems or 1500 words (prose) and we’ll schedule an online workshop to talk things through. After the workshop you’ll receive an email with both general comments and line edits. (Online workshop typically 30 minutes). If you’d like to schedule a series of workshops (in the case of longer work) – we’d be happy to discuss a rate.
Senior Editor’s line edits
£20 per short fiction up to 2000 words or up to four poems
This will consist of a line by line edit using MS Word ‘review’ in a reviewing pane. We will comment on all aspects of your piece including some (but probably not all!) copy editing. The price does not include an email ‘debate’ with the editor once the edit has been returned to you. Please allow 21 days for our response. Please note: If you intend to submit your edited work to The Phare, you will still need to go through the submission process. Positive feedback is not a guarantee of acceptance.
Senior Editor’s General Feedback
£10 per short fiction (up to 2000 words) or up to four poems
This will consist of a general overview and comments from one of The Phare’s senior editors. We will be honest and supportive – offering our considered and experienced opinion on where things worked, and where you might consider revision. We will send our Overview Comments in an email within 21 days of receipt of your work. This is for writers who wish for general feedback outside of our submission window.
