SpecFicNZ offers several opportunities per year for members to receive a free assessment on the first 6000 words of a manuscript. Our pool of assessors come from our membership including past and present Committee members, and all are specialised in speculative fiction. You may be able to request a particular assessor, and in every case we try to match your story to the best person for the job.

Beyond our own group, the New Zealand Association of Manuscript Assessors (NZAMA), the only organisation of its kind in the world, is a valuable resource to get your work whipped into shape. For a very decent rate an experienced writer and/or editor will look at your full manuscript and give you an assessment of its overall structure, content and marketability.
