Literary Critique

25


25 simbi per unit - Virtual OK

I will review your work in progress, be it a novel, a short story, or a poem.
When I edit, I go in with a machete in one hand and a scalpel in another. I honestly prefer flash fiction above all else, but I can take the same mentality into longer works to help you trim everything unnecessary from your writing, whether it's rethinking scenes or cleaning sentences.
I'm extremely critical; I won't tell you what I want to see, I'll tell you what your piece needs.

I'll do up to about 10,000 words per session (a little over is cool).

Caesar went above and beyond in helping me with the beginning of my book's first draft! His desire to help others is very apparent, and he puts real p...assion into his work. I can't recommend Caesar enough. I'd feel beyond lucky to get to work with him again. Thank you!show more

Because I really hate money, and I hate even asking people to pay for my services. If I had enough to live on, I'd do it all for free anyway. I've always preferred bartering for services.

About Caesar Kent

I'm a writer, an editor, a tutor, and a poet. I'm really involved with two local literary organizations, the Poetry Center of San Jose (PCSJ) and Flash Fiction Forum (FFF), and I have two novel(la)s o...ut, "The Peach and the Poppy," and "No Place like Somewhere Else," with a third book in the works. Needless to say, I love working with words and sharing that passion with others through teaching. show more
