NFB's Writers' Division's - Writing Critique Service

Writers’ Division Critique ServiceAn on-going service

Have you just written your masterpiece? Would you like a seasoned writer to give you an evaluation of your material?

The Writers’ Division of the National Federation of the Blind has established an on-going service: a critique of your writing.

For $10.00, you will receive a written evaluation of:
·        your short story (max of 3,000 words)
·        the first chapter (or first 20 pages) of your novel
·        your poem (up to 3 poems, 36 lines max per poem)
·        your children’s story (max of 3,000 words)
·        your memoir (first 20 pages max)
·        your non-fiction article (first 20 pages max)

The critique will contain feedback on the following:
·        Format
·        mechanics
·        Overall quality

Those interested should submit their work by E-mail as an attachment in MS Word format, have it double spaced and send it to:
Robert Leslie Newman
President, NFB Writers’ Division

Material may be submitted at any time. Critiques will be E-mailed back within 30 days from when the reviewer receives the material; our pool of qualified editors is small and sometimes a submission will need to wait for a short time until an editor is free.

You may pay the $10.00 fee by check by: making it out to NFB Writers’ Division, and sending it to Robert Leslie Newman, 504 S 57th St., Omaha, NE 68106; or use Pay Pal on the Writers’ Division website,
