While friends and family can be a fantastic resource throughout the writing process, a Frank & Co. reader is uniquely positioned to provide fresh and independent feedback designed to strengthen a writer's work on the road to publishing.

A skilled Frank & Co. reader will provide a written report based on the writer's manuscript.

The report will comment on the manuscript's consistency, structural effectiveness, sensitivity, pacing, voice, characterization, readability, and reader satisfaction. Every report includes a sensitivity reading.

  • Skilled and highly experienced editors
  • Fresh, objective and valuable insight into your manuscript

Important Points to Keep In Mind

  • An ability to receive honest and constructive feedback is crucial to the reader-writer relationship.
  • A manuscript assessment is a different service to copy-editing. Before submitting to Frank & Co. please consider having your manuscript copy-edited. Ultimately, this will allow for a more fulfilling and beneficial experience for the writer.
  • A reader’s feedback on a writer’s manuscript is ultimately one person’s experience of the work. Frank & Co offer multiple reading packages if the writer would like to have their manuscript read and commented on by a variety of readers.

Sensitivity Reading

When you write about a profession or experience that is outside of your own, research is important. This is another level to that research. We are here to support you in this process.

Package Time Frame Price
1 × Sensitivity Reader* 5 Days $510
Express Return* 2 Days + $90

* Indicates prices are based for manuscripts up to 100,000 words. Please contact us directly for manuscripts that exceed the indicated word count.

A sensitivity reader is an impartial reader who provides the writer with feedback on potentially biased or stigmatizing characterizations. If your characters or plot points have elements that could be read as bias, our sensitivity readers will point this out to you and make constructive suggestions.

We read for factors like unconscious bias, stereotyping, negative language that takes away from your writing, and can give you insight into how to write robust characters whose experiences might lie outside of your own.

Sensitivity readers are providing a particular perspective on your work and cannot guarantee that they will address every problem in your work, but they will do their best to bring you quality feedback that you can use to bring your manuscript to its fullest potential. We have readers specialising in many areas.
