Question
Just need an expert to read over my short peice on the life fo Ernest Hemmingway.  I have been writing for children for 24 years, and know my editor will ask for expert review.  Can you help?

Answer
Geary,

Actually, an editor would prefer that a piece for publication not be sent to a third party for review. That's up to their in-house people to take care of.

In addition, when I signed up for AllExperts I was asked not to review whole works for members. I can answer specific questions about problems or curiosity issues, but not actually review things. Sorry. Good luck, though.

I'm happy to answer questions about any aspect of getting short stories published in magazines, ezines and anthologies I can help with writing a cover letter to an editor and editing the story to suit a request for revisions. I can explain publishing terminology, acronyms and manuscript formatting. I can also assist with questions about verifying the credentials of magazines, ezines and anthology publishers and how to proceed once you've been accepted for publication.
