First Page Critiques

The Lord has put on my heart to offer first page critiques for anyone who is looking for feedback on their writing. I’ve been writing for nearly twenty years and as the guy in the TV commercial says, “I know a thing or two because I’ve seen a thing or two.” Not bragging here. Experience teaches us all something. Sometimes we have to do learn it the hard way.

Editing, mentoring, and coaching are passions the Lord has put in my heart. Many people helped me and continue to teach and encourage to me become a better writer. He instructed me to do the same for others: to pay forward the blessings he’s given me.

Everyone who submits a first page will receive a critique. Once or twice a month, I will post one submission anonymously on my blog with my feedback to share with others.

The criteria are: First page of a story or novel. 400-word max in Word. Times New Roman 12 pt. Double spaced. Send as an email attachment to

Happy writing!
