Who would benefit from an AutoCrit membership?

AutoCrit is specifically designed for authors who want to cut down the time and stress involved in producing a professionally edited manuscript, without compromising on the quality of their work or their creative vision.

Is AutoCrit worth it?

Value is, of course, in the eye of the beholder… but we definitely say YES! AutoCrit membership gives you not only access to our unique self-editing platform, but also your very own private community of authors and a seat at regular “members only” online events and workshops with special guests and the AutoCrit team. We aim to provide an invaluable return on your investment into your writing career.

How much does AutoCrit cost?

You can enjoy a taste of the AutoCrit editing platform for free by signing up for our “Free Forever” option. To access all features of the suite, including the private AutoCrit community and events, Professional membership is required. Professional membership costs $30 per month, or $297 per year with our annual option.

How can I get help with using AutoCrit?

For the best possible user experience, AutoCrit includes a full suite of features guides, explanations to help you interpret each analysis, and advice on best practices for self-editing. If you get stuck, just head to support and we’ll give you guidance.

What kind of tech do I need to use AutoCrit?

AutoCrit is an online web-based software. Although our website is optimized for mobile viewing, we recommend using a desktop or laptop PC/Mac for the best editing experience.

Can you use AutoCrit on mobile phone?

At the moment, the answer is, sadly, no. For the best experience, AutoCrit should be used on a desktop or laptop PC or Mac.

How will I know if I like AutoCrit?

You can enjoy a free taste of the AutoCrit editing platform right now by creating a “Free Forever” account. To access everything, including our member community, you’ll need to be a full subscriber. Don’t worry, though, as we don’t hold you to any minimum membership terms. If you find you’re not writing (how sad!) and don’t need AutoCrit for a while, simply cancel your subscription. We understand. You can reactivate at any time. Just use the same email address when you purchase, and you’ll be able to pick up right where you left off.

I’ve worked hard to develop my voice as a writer! Will AutoCrit take that away?

Absolutely not. AutoCrit produces recommendations based on style guidelines and trends in published fiction and non-fiction, but you’re always in control as the author.  There are no hard rights or wrongs, here, so simply ignore any recommendation that doesn’t work for you.

I already have a human editor I trust with my work. Would AutoCrit still be helpful?

Yes! When you revise your draft with AutoCrit first, you’ll give your editor a much cleaner manuscript. That means he or she can stop focusing on nitty-gritty details like how many adverbs you’ve used (almost always too many) and start looking at the bigger picture, helping you tune your writing to perfection.

We love human editors (in fact, quite a few use our software!), so it’s our goal to make sure you have the best, most rewarding experience working together.

What if I’m not ready to edit my manuscript yet?

Why not edit as you write? Whether you’re a “pantser” or a planner, AutoCrit will help you edit chapter-by-chapter. You’ll not only be making improvements as you go, you’ll be learning to avoid those issues as your novel progresses. The more you learn, the less you’ll have to fix with future chapters.

Can I type my manuscript into AutoCrit?

Yes, you can! Some of our members actually prefer to do all of their writing inside the platform, so they can prevent distractions during that all-important writing time.

What is a good AutoCrit score?

AutoCrit’s proprietary Summary Score is designed to help you track improvements as you make your edits. Try not to think of it as a qualitative score, but rather a guide to ensure your edits are relevant. Ideally, you should continue to increase the score as much as you can without sacrificing elements of the writing that you, the author, wish to preserve. You are in control.

That said, we do find that most successful, published books will sport a score within the 70 to 90 range.

Did you really scan millions of books to help me compare my writing to published bestsellers?

YES! Literally millions of complete, successful published books have been scanned and fed into AutoCrit software – the only one like it on the market. AutoCrit goes beyond the guidance found in style manuals and editing guides. Creativity meets technology in this real-world data, smartly applied for your benefit.

With AutoCrit, you can compare your work directly to real, published writing from some of the world’s most accomplished authors across fiction and non-fiction. With a mere couple of clicks, you can see how your writing compares to these standards – and make the journey from rough draft to a perfectly polished piece faster than ever before.

What makes AutoCrit different from apps like Grammarly and tools like ProWritingAid?

It’s really apples and oranges. Grammarly focuses entirely on spelling, grammar, and readability, but that’s only a minor part of AutoCrit. Where ProWritingAid acts as a useful style guide, it lacks the real-world data through which AutoCrit produces recommendations.

Simply put: AutoCrit helps writers quickly and easily refine their work by providing the most relevant, impactful feedback. With dynamic editing guidance that adjusts based on data from millions of published books across many different genres and bestselling authors, AutoCrit is the only online editing platform that keeps your specific needs and target audience firmly in mind.

Which is best, AutoCrit or ProWritingAid?

While the answer to this question ultimately depends on your needs, AutoCrit members frequently say that the unique comparison features of the AutoCrit editing platform, coupled with the supportive community and direct interaction with our team and guests, make AutoCrit membership a cut above the rest.
