Myriad Creative Editorial Services
Myriad has a proven track record of spotting talent and helping writers and artists to reach their potential. We work with a team of highly skilled authors and editors whose creative talent and knowledge of the publishing world is second to none, and we offer these skills to the wider creative community to support new writers and encourage excellence beyond our bespoke publishing programme.
Whether you are working on a novel, memoir, graphic fiction or graphic non-fiction, any of the following options can be tailored to suit your specific needs:
Option 1: Detailed appraisal and report
£300 + VAT up to 60,000 words of text or 60 pages of a graphic work | £50 + VAT for each additional 10,000 words or 10 pages
An experienced editor will read your work closely and prepare a detailed report, critically examining every aspect of your book, assessing its merits and advising you on key elements including plot, characterisation, dialogue, artwork, style, pacing, tone, and positioning in the market.
Option 2: Detailed appraisal, report and follow-up feedback on revisions
£510 + VAT up to 60,000 words of text or 60 pages of a graphic work | £85 + VAT for each additional 10,000 words or 10 pages
This package starts with the written report as above, but also incorporates a more sustained period (over a fixed three-month period) of editorial guidance and encouragement, including ongoing support by email while you work on revisions, and a second, detailed report giving follow-up feedback on a new draft of your manuscript.
Option 3: Mentoring
One two-hour session: £140 + VAT | Five two-hour sessions: £650 + VAT | Ten two-hour sessions: £1,200 + VAT
Not only are Myriad’s authors experts in their chosen genres with a wealth of personal experience to share, but many are professional teachers of creative writing or sequential art. We will carefully match you, for individually tailored mentoring sessions, with an author we believe will be able to inspire and encourage you by giving one-to-one advice and regular, personal feedback over a period of three to six months.
We can also arrange other customised services, including copy-editing and proofreading. For self-publishers we can also arrange for your book to be designed and produced to print-ready specifications.
