It’s been said that you’ll never really know what your story is about until you’ve finished it. In our experience, a great story is never really finished, but somewhere along the way a part of the veil lifts and you suddenly see a little more of the inner machinations of your story: how the plot fits together to form a coherent whole, how characters shape and are shaped by the world around them, and how through analogy your story offers to the reader a deeper and more universal truth.
We can’t lift that veil for you, just as we can’t, and won’t, write your story for you. What we can do, however, is tell you what your story means to us, and show you how to tell your story as effectively as possible.
The best part? You’ve got nothing to lose but a little time. When you’re ready, send us the first thousand words of your short story, novella, or novel, and in a few days we’ll send back a free line or developmental edit.
Because all editors are different, just as all writers are different. The trick is to find what works for you.
