2nd Draft


2nd Draft provides a high-level review of your writing, pointing out reasons your work may be getting rejected, or may not meet the standards of traditional publication.

After an evaluation of your submission, one of the professional 2nd Draft critiquers will provide feedback and advice. You’ll not only learn what’s working in your writing, but what’s not, and—most important—how to fix it.

What Customers Are Saying About 2nd Draft...

"I was extremely pleased with the results I got from 2nd Draft. As a new writer, I was dying for some professional advice after finishing my first novel. The critique I received was invaluable. My editor, Terri Valentine, sent me a personal letter giving me advice on everything from POV flaws to grammatical mistakes to ways of making my book more of a page turner. In addition, she left comments, corrections, and suggestions throughout the pages I sent her. I will be forever grateful. Thank you 2nd Draft!" — Kim Chavez

"2nd Draft offered me a professional pair of fresh eyes and the spit shine my manuscript needed. I can now submit my first three chapters without hesitation." — Lynne Ellis Marino
