Formerly the National Book Council Manuscript Assessment Service, Lynk sprang to life in 1998. Lynk is very well established with publishers and literary agents as a reputable and professional service for writers. A comprehensive team of published authors and book editors, with individual specialities spanning all genres and a shared commitment to good writing, work as Lynk’s assessors. Our aim is to provide expert constructive feedback so your manuscript may be developed to its full potential. Numerous authors who have used Lynk have gone on to secure publishing deals.

We provide assessments for all genres of fiction, and in all forms – e.g. novels, novellas, short-story collections; all fields of non fiction; plays and film scripts; poetry; and all forms of writing for children. We also offer a full suite of publishing services, including manuscript development, copy editing, mentoring, consulting, self-publishing and, when a manuscript is of an exceptional standard, agenting.
