Manuscript Feedback & Work-in-Progress Consultations

Since 2018, Michael has provided editorial support on over 25 published novellas-in-flash across a variety of leading publishers, including several manuscripts that have either won awards or been listed in competitions.

If you’ve already written (or started) a novella-in-flash, you could access guidance without undertaking Michael’s Incubator course.

OPTION 1 – Work-in-Progress Clarity Call” (by Zoom/Skype): you’re in the early stages of a first draft but you don’t know what to do next! Maybe your gut is telling you you have too many disparate, disconnected scenes, too many/too few characters, or there’s no “thread” suggested across the whole, or you don’t know where to take the overall story? Maybe you’re feeling confused about point of view, or the chronology or structure? Talking the manuscript through via Zoom or Skype will help you towards the right answers.

OPTION 2 Manuscript Appraisal (by Word document): you have a version of your novella-in-flash but you want specific, written feedback and ideas for fine-tuning the manuscript further, to increase your chances with a publisher or competition. You can request a 2-3 page appraisal, or a 6-10 page appraisal. These can be done with or without line edits.
