Manuscript Services

So you've done all the hard work and you've written a book. First of all, congratulations! All of us at The Writers' Company know what an achievement that is.  


Now you want to take your book to the next stage. You need someone who will edit your book, and allow you to see all that it is and all that it could be. From our team of professional writers we will choose an author who is the best fit for your book.

Below are the prices for a manuscript assessment:

Up to 15,000 words (opening extract/full length)    £200
Up to 30,000 words (opening extract/full length)    £350
Up to 60,000 words (full manuscript)    £400
Manuscripts longer than 60,000 words    £400 + £5 for every 1,000 words thereafter.

For this you will get:

  • a full breakdown of areas of improvement which will focus on plot, character, point of view, settings and style. This will take the form of a report which can be anything from 5 to 20 pages long.

  • suggestions about style, possible cuts, character motivations etc in the form of inline comments which you can accept or reject

  • basic editing (i.e. spelling and grammar) in the form of inline comments which you can accept or reject. N.B. This is not a copywriting service but a way of showing you your mistakes. We therefore do not guarantee to pick up all grammatic and spelling mistakes but will point them out where possible and when they detract from the story.


Because this is a bespoke service, we would very much like to talk to you before you send your work to us. Please contact us at
