The Spun Yarn offers a revolutionary new way to get honest and safe feedback on your unpublished manuscript.

"I think the Spun Yarn is a brilliant idea and I was very impressed with the feedback report. Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to try your service – it has helped me a great deal."

– Rachel Burge, England, YA author

Here's how the Spun Yarn works:


Step 1:

Submit your Manuscript


The Spun Yarn has built a diverse network of thorough and thoughtful readers from around the country. We’ll match your manuscript with three of these readers based upon their reading preferences and a few key details about you and your book.


Step 2:

Get Feedback from readers

Readers matched to your manuscript read your entire book, then provide a mixture of quantitative and qualitative feedback. Spun Yarn readers aren’t developmental editors or publishers or literary agents. Instead, they’re book nerds, selected for their unique perspectives and with rich experience using the Spun Yarn feedback approach.


Step 3:
Synthesized feedback delivered to you

Our Spun Yarn team compiles reader feedback into a summarized report which is delivered back to you within 21 days. By synthesizing feedback data across multiple readers, we’re able to identify areas for improvement that you otherwise might have missed. Best of all, your Spun Yarn feedback is as private and painless as you want it to be. The entire process is anonymous and what you choose to do with your feedback is up to you.

See what a Spun Yarn Manuscript Report looks like. We promise, you've never seen anything quite like it.

"The anonymity of the process is great. The feedback was truly candid and I was impressed by the attention to detail shown by my Spun Yarn readers."

– Jack Bunker, Washington, DC, author of True Grift
