Do you have a wonderful story, but need a second pair of eyes to look it over?
VS Grenier will look for grammar, spelling, setting, plot, character development, and so much more. Critiques are designed to help us become better writers. We all need our stories looked at by others who have experience in the writing world.
"Some time ago, you critiqued my children's picture book text, "Edward the Bear and the Willow Treasures" I am just writing to thank you for those comments and to let you know that the publisher I sent the story to liked the story. They have made some recommendations and have requested a rewrite. . . I am hoping that the publisher would not have taken the time to request a rewrite unless they were seriously considering the story for publication." - Jeff Doherty
"I'm very glad VS Grenier had the time to look at my story. She provided very valuable insights and provoked me to think deeper about my approach. All in all, this story, and any I may write in the future, will be benefited by her expertise. I am pleased and challenged by her feedback and would suggest her critique service to anyone. She's not about boosting your ego. She's about helping you. And that she does well."
"Virginia has a keen eye for narrative flow. She caught some repetitive wordings that none of my other critiquers noticed. With her pointing them out, I was able to vary my phrasing, improving the pace and readability of the entire story." -Karina Fabian
