I’ve spent the last seven years learning how stories work, and how to fix problems at the narrative level. If you purchase a Point North Story Critique, you get the benefit of my expertise, applied specifically to your book. You’ll leave the critique with a better understanding of your story, as well as a step-by-step guide to making it stronger.

If you’re road-testing an idea, and want to make sure it can sustain an entire story, sign up for a synopsis-level critique, which will help identify big-picture challenges; if you already have a manuscript you’re ready to revise, then the 25,000-word critique will give you in-depth analysis of your first act, and an overview of the rest of your novel; alternatively, the full critique will give that same critical and analytical attention to your entire manuscript. If you have other needs, then get in touch to discuss them!
