A paid critique service is an invaluable tool when working towards becoming the best writer you can be. You will receive a thorough review of the strengths and weaknesses of your writing, suggestions for improvement, and ideas for potential markets for your work. However, no one can guarantee publication of your work.
Write2Ignite offers two different types of critiques:
2 For 1 CRITIQUES (Submit April – November)
Are you looking for some new input on a manuscript? Write2Ignite! offers you two separate (but simultaneous) critiques of one manuscript from two of our Team members for only $45.
Email Brenda Covert at firstname.lastname@example.org for complete instructions. Include in the subject line of your email “Two4One Critique.”
*Write2Ignite! reserves the right to refuse manuscripts that are not formatted correctly or contain content that may be regarded as offensive or inappropriate for Christian markets.
CONFERENCE CRITIQUES (Submit December – February)
If you sign up for a critique at a Write2Ignite! Conference, you will receive a written one-page critique or comments written on your pages and a 15-minute private appointment with a conference presenter. SPECIAL NOTE – Only registered conferees may submit a manuscript for critique by conference presenters. Both adults and teens can submit work for a critique.
