George Salis will proofread and give feedback on your fiction or nonfiction with a cap of 2,000 words per supporter per month.
Alternately, our poetry editor Nicole Melchionda will provide the same service to 2-5 poems per supporter per month.

This special rate is exclusive to Patreon supporters.

In addition to winning awards for his fiction, George Salis' debut novel Sea Above, Sun Below was praised by Alexander Theroux, Rikki Ducornet, and other readers, writers, and critics. Theroux said, “I have read Sea Above, Sun Below with great delight, find it ‘a cacophony of jubilation,’ and I love the boldness of Salis’ characters, his wit, and the dash of his writing. There is electricity on every page, reminding me of what Dr. Sam Johnson said of Dr. Birch, ‘As soon as he takes up his pen, it turns into a tornado.'”

Nicole Melchionda is a poet and essayist whose work has appeared in various journals, such as Abyss & Apex, Helios Quarterly Magazine, and Brindle & Glass. Her work has been nominated for the WSFA Small Press Award and twice for the Best of the Net Anthology.

About The Collidescope

Most books are destined to oblivion. The Collidescope focuses on those that have been neglected because of their artistic daring and uninhibited visions. If you enjoy seeing the mental fireworks of a writer wrestling with their imagination, with language itself, then you'll love the books that writer/editor George Salis has been shining a light on. Having already featured Alexander Theroux, Rikki Ducornet, Abel Posse, Vanessa Place, Pierre Senges, and others, there's still much more digging to be done. With your support, we can make the invisible visible.

In addition, The Collidescope publishes experimental and speculative fiction, poetry, and more.

“The reviews [George Salis] wrote on these books are among the smartest, most insightful writing I’ve read on most of them, far more meaningful than the usual book review….”
