Providing an objective overview to take your writing to the next level.
before you submit
You might want to consider an Editorial Critique if your short story or memoir:
has not been workshopped.
is not moving forward or in a direction you intended it to go in.
is suffering from writer's block.
An Editorial Critique takes place in different phases of the writing process. A story or memoir might be in need of an objective assessment:
before any revisions take place.
when the story needs a final polishing.
before it is submitted to a journal.
Good writing happens because writers have someone else take a critical look at their work.
GDLJ provides an overview of a short story or memoir to address the narrator's voice, character arc, storyline/ plot, general flow, typos, grammatical errors, verb tense and POV shifts, and passive voice.
We highlight examples in the work to help you revise in a constructive manner.
