From its inception in 2000, Green Arrow Publishing has always prided itself in responding
to the needs of writers, irrespective of whatever genre they write in and whatever
their level of experience.
During our discussions with writers at Literary Events, Bookfairs or in person by
telephone, there was a perceived need for a professional and affordable service for
writers who needed honest, objective advice and guidance before submitting their
work to publishers for consideration.
Having the support of friends, family and colleagues in your writing projects is
naturally very welcome. However, unless they are publishing professionals, they are
unlikely to know what publishers are looking for in the way of well-written and well-presented
We are therefore pleased to offer our Editorial Advisory Service, for which all types
of written work is eligible. You may submit individual or collective pieces.
Your work will be read and thoroughly appraised by a professional reader after which
a written report will be prepared, highlighting strengths and weaknesses. The report
will also cover matters regarding presentation and layout, thereby greatly increasing
your chances of being published.
Please note that this is a service for which a fee is chargeable and payable in advance.
Our current fees:
Texts up to 3000 words – £40.00
Texts 3000 to 5000 words – £50.00
Texts over 5000 words – £50.00
plus £10.00 per 1000 words (or part thereof)
£4.00 per poem up to 40 lines plus 10p for each additional line
NB. Where more than 10 poems are submitted, this will be regarded as a collection
and will be subject to a discount by separate quotation.
A fixed fee of £85.00 applies irrespective of length of script.
A covering letter and remittance should be enclosed with your work. Cheques should
be made payable to 'Green Arrow Publishing.' Alternatively, you can pay by debit/credit
card on this website, by clicking on the ‘Payments’ button and entering the appropriate
fee. On receipt of your typescript and payment, you will receive an acknowledgement
indicating the approximate time required to read your work and prepare the report.
This period will of course vary according to the amount and type of work submitted.
Please note that once the report has been issued, no further correspondence by letter
or e-mail, nor telephone discussion will be entered into regarding its content. Revised
typescripts which have observed any recommendations made may be re-submitted on payment
of the appropriate fee.
