Offering to be a fill-in critiquer

Postby Sparrow » Sat Oct 01, 2011 5:19 pm

Hi guys, I don't enter the challenge much anymore since I'm focusing on my novels now, but having my challenge stories critiqued every week was a big part of how I got to where I am as a writer. I'd love to be able to give back some of what others gave to me. I have a local "live" critique group and critique buddies for my non-challenge stuff I'm writing, but I'd love to give challenge critiques for those who need it any given week.

So I'm offering myself to be a fill-in critiquer. If you have a week everyone else is busy or just feel like you want another perspective on your work, feel free to send it to me. I do not critique poetry, but any other genre is great. My email is Amy [at] sparrowsflight [dot] net

I will mark grammar stuff as well as flow, continuity, and realistic dialogue, and will help you do more showing and less telling. I try to not only mark wrong (and right ;) ) things, but also try to explain why I am marking it. I've had short stories published many times, I run a collaborative fiction group called Peculiar People, and I've taught a workshop at the FW conference the last couple of years. I also did freelance editing for a while.

Blessings!

Hi Amy!

Given your very busy schedule, that's a wonderful offer! If I'm ever stuck for someone I'll most definitely send you an email :D

Blessings,

Helen

You posted that thread after I did this thread, so I didn't see it. Thanks for the link. Cool.

Thanks. :) I actually have lots of time, but am more limited on energy. But I enjoy critiquing.
