I have many different writings, both fiction and non-fiction, for which I would like some professional feedback. Does anyone know of a website or company which would provide this. I would be prepared to pay for such a service, although not a lot, because I don't have a lot. I would need some feedback before attempting to find an agent, because it is very hard to judge my own writing, and would not want to waste my time sending work to agents, if it really is not up to standard.
I would recommend that you actually post a couple of links to your hubs in the Extreme Hub Makeover forum thread and ask for this same advice from some of the professional writers here.
There are plenty of them that know their stuff here and is free to members, who want advice on their hubs.
If you would like? Report your thread to staff, ask them to move the thread to the Extreme Hub Makeover forum thread. Once it has been move, then post a couple of links to your hubs that you would like critiqued.
It's just a suggestion that could work to your advantage without having to spend money on professional services.
Thanks for the suggestion. I didn't know it was possible to do this, so will give it a try.
Be careful when looking for someone to review your work, they could take it and call it their own....
I have just looked at the extreme hub makeover forum, which states that the promotion of or linking to your hub on the forum may result in my profile being deleted. I am confused, because I thought this was what this forum was for.
It's not self promotion when you are asking for critiquing.
Not so. The official explanation specifically states that - unlike on other forums - you can link to your hubs there without penalty.
However, that forum was not intended for serious literary critique, more for general feedback on your writing, presentation, hub layout etc.
The easiest way to get feedback from professionals is to submit your work to professional markets.
Website Examiner renders excellent services in this regard. He just doesn't believe in self-promotion. Go visit his profile.
None of my former post is now applicable, as my previous profile as muldanianman has been deleted, and my attempts to publish my previous hubs are being deleted as duplicates. How this can be, when my old profile no longer exists makes little sense to me. I am getting really fed up with HubPages now. I shall try website examiner, thanks. That's if I can manage to do it before the two hubs I have been allowed to publish are also removed as duplicates.
What appears to be an identical copy of one of your two hubs, A Tale of Two Murders, is published on this site:
http://www.stephenfry.com/forum/topic/a … wo-murders
I wondered if it might be that site, although that one has published on this site. It is "The Happy Wishing Well" which will not publish on here. And unfortunately, there is no option on Stephen Fry's site to delete posts, so it will have to remain on there.
I tried to correct the link above, but a glitch in the system will not allow me to do so. Here is the correct link that I found:
http://www.stephenfry.com/forum/topic/a … wo-murders
That seems to be identical to your published hub.
So, now we have a parallel thread running, in case some wants to continue there:
Oh well, it is too confusing. Stephen Fry's site does not allow for deletion, so I cannot publish them on here. So have informed HubPages to delete my latest account, as there seems little point in being on here if I cannot publish hubs.
If you respectfully email the moderator of the forum I suspect they would allow it to be deleted.

While I'm being a policeman, I can't help noticing that there's a lot of self-promotion that goes on in the forums. Especially the "other topics" forums, where quite often you'll find posts with not much...
