A mini-edit of the first 10,000 words of your novel is a great way to check that you are on the right track, and Lesley Jones of Perfect the Word is offering just that in the form of a two-pass line edit – which means you get your revisions edited once you’ve seen the result of the first pass.
This prize is worth at least £250 and includes a detailed editorial letter.
Lesley is a professionally qualified editor and is an advanced professional member of the Chartered Society of Editing and Proofreading (CIEP). The winner can email Lesley with the first 10,000 words of their novel in Word format. Lesley will return her first pass showing her edits in track changes, together with an editorial letter, and the winner will then have time to work on their own revisions (also using track changes) before emailing the file back to Lesley for the second pass. The winner can use Lesley’s suggestions and advice when completing their manuscript.
Prize value: £250
