Welcome to Close-Up Editing & Assessment!

We believe that a good assessment requires the assessor to be honest and constructive without being needlessly aggressive or presumptuous, that’s why we critique the manuscript not the author.

Further, we believe that consultation with the client is vital in order to provide a truly meaningful assessment. A dialogue about what is sought from the assessment is the best way to achieve this, which is why we encourage prospective clients to contact us first.

Close-Up Editing & Assessment assesses and edits completed manuscripts and works in progress, including all genres of:

  • fiction
  • non-fiction

And specialising in:

  • thriller, fantasy, science and speculative fiction
  • poetry manuscripts
