Attention Writers: Critique Opportunity!

During the months of July and August, Greyhaus Literary Agency is helping out this great cause. 

During the months of July and August, Greyhaus Literary Agency is giving back to authors out there an supporting a fantastic cause. My daughter, Catherine Poppen-Eagan has been fortunate to compete in hunter/jumper equestrian programs. It is that involvement that got me interested in this program.

The EQUUS Foundation, also known as Horse Charities of America, is the only national charity in the United States solely dedicated to horse welfare and fostering the horse-human bond. Our efforts are focused on closing the gap for America's horses currently at risk, and those potentially at risk when their competitive careers are over by funding programs focused on the rescue, rehabilitation and re-training, and re-homing of America's horses in need, and on increasing job opportunities for horses, including those serving the special needs and veterans communities.

During the month of July and August, Greyhaus is focusing its attention on helping out this great program through critiques. All money raised will go directly to The EQUUS Foundation.

  • Query Letter - $25.00 Donation
  • 3-5 page Synopsis - $50.00 Donation
  • First three chapters - $100.00 Donation

Authors participating in this fund raiser will receive the following:
  • Query Letter - Line comments for the query letter including some general feedback about the over-all project/
  • 3-5 page synopsis. - Line comments as well as some general feedback about the over-all project.
  • First three chapters - Chapter by chapter feedback focusing in on character and plot development. An emphasis will be placed on how the story draws the reader in, in terms of the voice and the pacing. 

For all three projects, this is not going to be an edit looking at grammar, punctuation and spelling. If issues such as this do arise, the critique will mention to look for these items.

NOTE: Please understand that any author submitting material for a critique is not going to be considered for representation. Should an author wish to submit the project at a later time, the author would be free to do so. 

Please also note that the feedback provided in the critique does not guarantee that the author will be published by Greyhaus Literary Agency or any other agency or publisher. The comments and feedback are just the opinion of one person.

I also want to note that this is open to ANY writer. BUT, it is also open to non-writers. Should you be interested in supporting this cause, simply follow the procedures for submitting a manuscript to be critiqued. When I contact you with how to submit, simply reply back and let me know your intent.
