To support the craft of women poets, we are glad to offer manuscript review services. This service provides you with a one- to two-page written review focused on evaluation, constructive feedback, and concrete suggestions from a member of the QuillsEdge Press Editorial Board.

Please note that during reading periods, paying for a review has no effect on the status of your submission. All anthology and contest submissions are read blind, and reviews and submissions are assigned to different readers by an administrator to ensure fairness in the judging process.
