“I am really grateful (and pleased!) with both appraisals and feel I have more than had my money's worth. Both reviewers have taken the time to thoroughly read my novel extract and comment on several areas, not just one or two, that either impressed them or they felt could be tweaked. I'm very, very happy and will definitely be recommending Fiction Feedback to my writer friends” ~ RB

Plays

Constructive critique for plays. The suggestions we make in our critiques can transform good writing into published or competition-winning writing.

We have a number of reviewers with a specific background in this area so we’re delighted we can offer our appraisal service for stage or radio plays. (Sorry, no film or TV scripts, but visit Hayley Mackenzie at Script Angel.)

Please submit up to 60 A4 pages, double-spaced, with 2.5cm margins and a type-size of 11 point or larger. (We don’t give a wordcount for plays because of their very different format from a novel.)

Up to 60 pages: 1 critique £69; 2 critiques £99

This is probably a little over half the length of a play with a running time of 3 hours. You’re welcome to include a synopsis of up to 1,000 words. The 60 pages must be contiguous, and we recommend they’re the first 60 pages – a publisher, director or radio producer will always be most influenced by the first few pages, so it’s sensible to include these.

If you would like us to supply critique(s) for your play in its entirety, different rates apply.

61 to 120 pages: 1 critique £95; 2 critiques £149

If your play is longer than this, please email us for a quote.

To submit, click below, or click on the submission form link on the left hand panel that appears throughout the site. The procedure outlined in How to Submit might be useful.
