The New Zealand Association of Manuscript Assessors

 The New Zealand Association of Manuscript Assessors(NZAMA) is a group of professional editors and writers who offer authors objective advice and guidance on how to bring their work closer to publishable standard. We have all worked in manuscript assessing, editing, and/or the teaching of writing. NZAMA has a code of professional practice and strict entry criteria.

Writers need to contact members individually for fees and other details, such as how to present manuscripts (e.g. do not email manuscripts as attachments unless the assessor has agreed). Please make enquiries by email or write with a stamped self-addressed envelope.
