Constructive critique for your short story,
or mini fiction. The suggestions we make in our critiques
can transform good writing into published or competition-winning
A critique of a short story is of most value when we know
which market you’re aiming at. Short story requirements
for women’s magazines, for example, are very different
from those of literary magazines or competitions. Please
let us know when you submit your story for critique if
you have a particular magazine or competition in mind.
Up to 2,000 words: 1 critique £49; 2
critiques £89; 3
Over 2,000 words: 1 critique £59;
2 critiques £99; 3 critiques £149;
4 critiques £189
Please note competition entries very difficult
to gauge. We advise the writer, first; read entries by
previous winners and runners-up and second; identify the
judge and read any of his or her work, or anthologies he
or she has edited.
If your short story is for a competition, then to help
us in reviewing your work please let us have the website
details of the competition when you submit – there
is a space for this information on the Submission Form.
Please allow plenty of time!
We can’t guarantee that, even if we think your story
is good enough to be published, or to take a prize in a
competition, that it will in fact do so. However, a Fiction
Feedback appraisal might be able to suggest how you could
improve your story which will in turn improve your chances.
