Picture Book Critiques :: Karla Valenti


I offer professional PB manuscript critiques (under 1,000 words) in English and Spanish. Writing is a challenging, often frustrating, and very emotional journey. I recognize the great courage it takes to hand your work over for review and I appreciate the trust you place in me as a critiquer. Please know that I take this work very seriously. I respect the time and effort you have put into your manuscript, and I assume you want to make your story shine as much as possible. With that in mind, I offer positive feedback, but my specialty is thorough and honest constructive criticism. My critiques are done in MS track changes and the feedback I provide evaluates your manuscript both from a writer’s standpoint and the reader’s point of view. I always include comments on why I am responding a certain way to your text. I may also refer you to certain articles, books, or mentor texts that may help you on your journey. If what you seek is a good job/keep going kind of critique, I am probably not the right fit for you. If, however, you are serious about taking your manuscript to the next level, please consider one of the following packages:
