Ink Crafters Critique

Imagine taking two years to write your novel, only for an editor to say it needs a full rewrite...

Get Feedback While You Write!

Hi! I´m Kristin!

AKA The Nonsense-Free Editor

I've been editing novels and memoirs full time for over 15 years now.

But the NUMBER 1 request I had in my in-box was for feedback DURING the writing process.

"I just need to know if it's good.

Am I on the right track?

Will anyone want to read this?"

Sometimes authors would pay me to edit their 100k-word novel, only to get the dreaded words: NEEDS A FULL REWRITE.

It's never fun, but I always tell the truth.

So I asked myself, what if I can fix those little issues before they become big ones?

What if other authors could join me and provide their unique insight as well?

InkCrafters was born!

Frequently asked

What genres are welcome?

All genres are welcome! We have dedicated spaces for fiction and nonfiction, but may create dedicated niche rooms as we grow. If you write on the wild side, we ask that content warnings are included.

What if I Don't Use Microsoft Word?

We are a Google Docs shop, meaning Macs and PCs, iOS and Android all work well. It also means no need to upload or download documents. It's all in your browser!

What if I don't agree with the feedback?

YOU are the author, meaning if you get feedback that doesn't vibe with your style, then that's all good. We are here to support you and make you better, not turn YOUR book into OUR book :) InkCrafters is all about respect.
