2016 BETA READER POST

There is still plenty of time left in the writing period, but some of you may already be finished (or close to it), or you may just want to get a beta reader in place for when you do finish. So, if you need a beta reader or would like to volunteer services, please use this post!

While we do not require stories to have a beta reader, we strongly recommend it.

If you're volunteering as a beta, please comment here! Tell us:
  • Which fandoms you can work in (full list of Crossovering fandoms)

  • How to contact you: email, @Twitter, Tumblr, Skype, PM on LJ/DW, etc.

  • If you're offering SPAG, worldbuilding, character, or plot help ... or all four!

  • An estimate of what your turnaround time is

  • Your dealbreakers, aka what you won't beta, e.g., violence, non-con, cheating, mushrooms, talking animals, etc.


If you're looking for a beta, you can leave an anonymous comment here listing the fandoms you need help with. DO NOT REVEAL YOUR INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT.

Anonymous comments will be unscreened and can be replied to by beta volunteers with their contact info.

If you're looking for a beta and are worried about revealing your assignment, you can email the mods and we'll act as go-between on your behalf.

We hope everyone is enjoying the writing process so far, but if you need any assistance, feel free to comment here or e-mail us and we'll do what we can.

Fandoms: I'm happy to read about fandoms I don't know, but if you're looking for canon or characterization checks, I am familiar with the following: Narnia, Fairy Tales, Craig Bond movies, Pride & Prejudice, Back to the Future, Inception, Indiana Jones, MCU, Alias, Game of Thrones, Heroes, Lost, Sense8

How to contact you: lj.aurilly at gmail

Offering: Just let me know what you're looking for, whether it's SPAG or internal logic, or pacing/flow or characterization or American picking or...

Turnaround: Depends on my work schedule, but usually 3 days.

Dealbreakers: anything requiring an AO3 warning; txt files (I'm all about track changes and comments, Word is my favorite but Google docs is okay, too)
