Item Name and Description:

Short Story Critique by Apex Magazine’s Managing Editor Lesley Conner

Lesley will do a thorough critique of one short story (up to 7,500 words) with editing notes on story structure and grammar left throughout the manuscript via track changes. When she returns your story to you, she will include an email detailing what she believes to be the strengths and weaknesses of the story, as well as suggestions on how to make the story stronger. If you have questions about any of her notes, she will be happy to go over them with you, working with you step by step to make your story the best it can possibly be.

Lesley is the managing editor at Apex Magazine and Apex Book Company, where she does quite a bit of copy editing and proofreading. She also does freelance editing for a few clients. Her novel The Weight of Chains was published in 2015 by Sinister Grin Press.
