“When seriously considered, the short story seems to me the most difficult and disciplinary form of prose writing extant.” Truman Capote


The Short Story offers a simple, effective critique service for short fiction, an example of which can be found here: Critique

Our editors work at the rate of £10 per 1,000 words, to the nearest word (e.g. a critique for a short story that’s 2,376 words would cost £23.76).

After filling in the form below and attaching your document, you will be contacted by us and given a time-frame. Usual response times are between one and two weeks, depending on the length of the piece. Once the critique has been started, we will send through an invoice via PayPal. On receipt of payment, the critique will be sent to you.
