Anne offers manuscript evaluations for both picture books and novels (Middle Grade or YA). She works as a manuscript mentor for the University of Toronto, TWUC, CANSCAIP, and privately. An evaluation consists of substantive comments discussing key elements such as character, plot, voice and setting, and offers specific suggestions for ways to improve the manuscript. Novel manuscripts also receive a detailed editing of the first chapter.

A picture book or chapter/maximum ten-page submission: $170.00
Full manuscript: $100 for first 20 pages + $2 a page thereafter.

Anne has a special gift. Her knack for honing in on a manuscript’s problems is unsurpassed in my book, and I’ve worked with a number of wonderful editors over the years. Her feedback is always gentle, respectful, and most of all spot-on.
