After some thought (and a visit to a hospital emergency department during a recent writers festival!) we have introduced a medical term to Olvar Wood: Manuscript Triage.
It’s an addition to our Manuscript Appraisal service for those not sure if they are ready for a full appraisal, but nonetheless seeking professional feedback on their work. It’s very much like the triage process at a hospital emergency centre: an initial professional assessment before full admission.
Olvar Wood’s Manuscript Triage service allows you to submit the first 50 pages of your manuscript, and a synopsis, for assessment. You will receive a short report (3-5 pages), and the option of a face-to-face or phone meeting.
And, if you return to Olvar Wood for a full appraisal or mentorship within 12 months, we’ll deduct the cost of the Triage from your invoice.
You can find more information on our Appraisals page.
P.S. If you can think of a better name – please let us know!
