After you finish a piece of creative writing you might ask yourself several questions.

Is my writing publishable? Is my writing good? What do you think of my writing? And finally, where do I get feedback for my writing? 

Does this sound like you? At Letter Review we provide feedback on short stories. If you’re seeking a writing assessment, a writing critique, or writing feedback then our service can help. 

We often have people ask, where can I get feedback for my short story? Where is the best place to get feedback on my writing? Or even, am I a bad writer? 

Feedback is most useful after you have finished a draft of your work. Perhaps you’d like someone to look over your writing before you start sending it out into the world? Perhaps some of your writing has not been accepted at a number of publications, and you’d like some advice about why that might be.

We know it can be intimidating to share your work, so please trust that we are here to support you in a friendly, relaxed, and constructive way.
