Critical reading is the little sister of developmental editing and is most suitable for short works such as short stories, short articles, and essays.
As your critical reader, I read your work and provide a relatively brief (as compared to an extensive developmental revision plan) written report on your manuscript's strengths and weaknesses. The report also includes my ideas for enhancing the work and my opinion on whether the manuscript is ready for copy editing or needs either revision by the author or substantive editing before a final copy edit and publication.
(For more information about developmental editing, please see my developmental editing portfolio.)
