Manuscript Analysis Report — Based on manuscript type and length | POA
This one page report provides unbiased and professional opinion on your manuscript’s commercial viability in the context of the current market climate.
The report indicates the potential audience and highlights the literary strengths and weaknesses (structure: plot, story, characterisation, dialogue, POV, theme, setting). It includes suggestions on how you could rework your manuscript to make it more likely to get the attention of a publisher/producer.
It is not a traditional review, and therefore offers little or no guidance on the artistic merits of the manuscript.
