What Can You Expect from a 2nd Draft Synopsis Review

  • A clear idea of how to revise

What Our 2nd Draft Critique Editors Won't Do:

2nd Draft reviewers will not:

  • Rewrite or revise for you, except in the case of providing an example of how to revise on your own.
  • Correct grammar, mechanics and spelling. This requires our 2nd Draft proofreading service or a professional copyeditor. However, a reviewer will point out any patterns of surface-level error that may pose a significant problem for you.
  • Check and correct for style (e.g., Chicago Manual of Style or AP style). This requires a professional proofreader or copyeditor.
  • Provide any fact-checking.
  • Provide answers or advice on legal issues.

Excellent service Review by Stephen
Rating

Sometimes when you're writing your story you need to have another set of eyes to say "What?" or to say "take another look at this." Stephen Mertz's critique of my synopsis provided just the extra eye I needed in helping me focus more on nuance. Excellent service. Thank you.

Very happy with the service! Review by Priyanka

I'm really glad I used this service because I had worked hard on my synopsis, but I had believed that little would need to be changed. (Naive thinking, I know!) But when it came back to me, Gloria Kempton came with clear, detailed feedback on how I could take my synopsis to the next level. I'm grateful because had I not gotten my synopsis critiqued, I would be unaware of significant issues in my synopsis. Now I can take those suggestions and fix everything.
