Collection open! Pinch hits coming soon! Beta post!

A few bits of business while we're all busy creating:

  1. The AO3 collection for 2018 is now open for posting!

  2. We will have a few pinch hits going out on FRIDAY, 9/21, around 6pm Eastern Time. If you haven't signed up for the pinch hit list where these will be broadcast, head on over to sign up now!


    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.

I'm Isis on AO3 but am not signed up for this exchange. You can reach me at I prefer not to use gdocs, but can handle most text formats - odt, doc, docx, rtf. Turnaround will depend on story length.

I can possibly brainstorm with you if you're stuck. (I hang out on the Exchanges After Dark and the Yuletide discords - also happy to talk over email.) Other than that, I pretty much only have one beta-mode which is to read through the story and flag SPAG errors and things that stick out to me, either good or bad. I generally pay more attention to worldbuilding and plot than characterization. I have no a priori dealbreakers, but if I feel as though I can't beta your story I'll let you know fairly quickly.
