New editorial services launched

We’re always getting lots of messages asking us for feedback on stories submitted for competitions and for critiques on novels, memoirs and short fiction collections.

So we’re excited to have launched our new Editorial Services today and have put together a fantastic team of professional editors who have experience across all genres who can help you take your work to the next level. You can also sign up for one-to-one mentoring to get in-depth, tailored advice, support and motivation as you write.

We’ve also now added the option to select feedback on all of our competitions at submission stage. Just choose the add-on in the Submittable entry and we’ll get back to you with feedback after the longlist has been announced if your story doesn’t go through. If you pay for a critique and your story goes on to win, you can use the critique to help you develop another story up to the same word count.

To celebrate the launch of the feedback services, one of our editors, Matt Kendrick, has kindly donated two free critiques on flash fictions up to 500 words. Email us by 5pm UK time on Friday 4th September to go in the draw to win one of these. We’ll use a random number generator to pick a winner.

We’re all really looking forward to helping you develop your work.
