“ I am really grateful (and pleased!) with both appraisals and feel I have more than had my money's worth. Both reviewers have taken the time to thoroughly read my novel extract and comment on several areas, not just one or two, that either impressed them or they felt could be tweaked. I'm very, very happy and will definitely be recommending Fiction Feedback to my writer friends” ~ RB

Postal Submissions
1. Typewritten manuscripts sent to us by post are acceptable, with the proviso that you keep a copy, as we can never guarantee its safe return.

You don’t have to include an SAE, but do ensure your address is included in the covering submission form you send. We return your manuscript and critiques by the same postage type you use when sending to us – we will use 2nd class, 1st class or recorded postage as appropriate.

2. Our review rates for posted manuscripts are a little higher. This is because handling the manuscript and passing it around reviewers incurs postage and packing costs as well as extra administration time.

Short stories up to 2,000 words
Short stories over 2,000 words
Novel extract up to 15,000 words
Novel extract up to 40,000 words
Novel extract up to 80,000 words
Novel extract up to 120,000 words

For any other options not shown here, please email for a quote, mentioning you will be sending your work by post.

3. You’ll appreciate it takes us longer to pass printed manuscripts from one reviewer to another; we’ll contact you with an estimated time. If you’re paying by cheque, please note we can’t begin work until the cheque has cleared.

4. Please supply a telephone number on your completed Submission Form, which we need you to print out and send with your manuscript to Fiction Feedback, 3 Dale View, Chorley, Lancashire, PR7 3QJ

5. If you’d like to email us and let us know your manuscript is on its way, we’ll keep an eye out for it so there are no delays before we begin reviewing!

6. We’re sorry, we can’t provide critiques for handwritten manuscripts.

7. We’re sorry again, we’re unable to provide proofing and editing for hard copy manuscript submissions – we need digital files for this service.
