Expect your assignments to arrive within the next ten minutes or so.

For now, let's open this year's beta readers 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.

Looking for a beta but none of the volunteers have listed your fandom(s)? You can leave an anonymous comment here listing the fandoms you need help with. Do not reveal other details of your 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.
