The rise of self-publishing has vastly increased the demand for an
old editorial skill -- manuscript evaluation (also called critiquing).
Often you'll be asked to edit a manuscript that just isn't ready for
editing. An evaluation lets you guide the writer through the task of
reworking the manuscript. A properly prepared evaluation looks at a
wide variety of aspects of the manuscript, pointing out what's working
and what isn't. Evaluation is what beta readers think they are doing,
but at a much more professional level. This webinar will discuss how
to evaluate fiction and non-fiction manuscripts.
After attending this webinar, participants will be able to guide
writers through extensive, focussed rewrites of their manuscripts —
and will understand their own writing better, too.
This webinar is geared toward editorial professionals who want a
better understanding of manuscript evaluation so that they can include
it in the editorial services they offer clients.
