Submission Review

Ready to send your novel out into the world? Check it’s in the best possible shape to snare an agent

Is This The Right Report For Me?

You've finished your novel. You've primped it and polished it and torn it down and started again, and now you're pretty sure it's ready to make its way out into the world. But if you'd like a second opinion before you start submitting to your dream agents, this one's for you.

Send us your covering letter, synopsis and first fifty pages and we'll tell you if it's ready to snare an agent, in a report of 1,000 words. We'll look at the effectiveness of your synopsis and letter, and give a brief assessment of the writing in your extract – is it working as hard as it could? Will it keep an agent reading?

We've helped lots of our students find – and be signed by – their perfect agent, so we're confident we'll be able to help.


Please note that this report is only suitable for finished manuscripts. If you're at an earlier stage in your writing journey, our How's My Driving? report might be more appropriate. And if you're looking for feedback on your manuscript in its entirety, there's our Full Report.
