Book-length Manuscript Evaluation 

The manuscript evaluation fee includes a one and a half-hour phone conversation (Sheila will call you at a time arranged via email with her response and editorial advice) as well an emailed editorial letter and extensive notes on the manuscript itself, which she will email back to you (digital manuscripts preferred but if you send a print manuscript include a self-addressed stamped postal package envelope) before the phone call. Email Sheila if you have questions.

“For those of you considering a complete edit on your work, I can say that Sheila’s work is clear and concise. She takes a personal interest in helping you put your story to paper and she leaves you with the idea that you can be the writer you want to be.” ~ Suzy Beal

“I have had three writing experiences with Sheila Bender that revealed different aspects of her work. In her teaching she gave specific examples that provided footholds for moving forward. When reviewing my novel, she analyzed both themes and details to enable me to dig deeper and produce a richer text. Sheila is talented and easy to work with, even at a distance. I highly recommend her for improving writing at all levels.”   ~ Ellen Fisher
