Less intensive than a writing coach, more holistic than an editor, a beta-reader gives you detailed, careful feedback on a completed piece of writing.
I am not only a writer myself, I am a professional analyst of narratives and texts who has worked for many years developing an eye for recognizing a piece’s strengths and gaps. My own strengths as a reader include works of literary and genre fiction, non-fiction aimed at a popular audience, scripts and screenplays, scholarly articles in the humanities and social sciences and grant proposals.
Rates vary depending on the length and complexity of your text, and whether you would like a single – thorough – read through, or would like continued feedback on subsequent drafts.
