|Beta-Readers is a dating service, but for your writing. We match authors and beta readers based on writing abilities and writing interests.|
What is a beta reader?
A beta reader is an experienced writer dedicated to helping another writer improve by providing a cross between edits and a critique. You can learn more by reading these two beta reading tutorials: Authors and Beta Readers.
We'll be starting back up with regular features on September 15th. So if you're a writer or artist and want to get in on receiving feedback be sure to send us a note with three thumbcodes. We're going to be working out the schedule in the next couple days.
We're half way through August and it's finally time to tell everyone what the big surprise is.
BeACritic will start accepting deviants outside of the Literature Community
That's right! We're no longer going to be focused solely on Lit here. We'll feature any type of art in our features. Currently, everything else will stay the same. Each feature will be up for two weeks and at the end of that time a new feature will be posted. Depending on the level of involvement and call for features, we may change this in the future to allow more deviants to be featured at the same time.
What do we need from you?
SPREAD THE WORD! Tell everyone you know that wants feedback on their art to come here and join us. And seriously, that's like EVERYONE! The more deviants we get participating in this, the more feedback the featurees receive and very possibly the better the rewards.
And speaking of rewards, do you offer commissions? If so, please note us with details. We're always looking for more artists to support in our Special Promotions.
When is all of this going to go into effect?
Starting right now, we're accepting notes from deviants wanting to be featured. But remember, if you don't spread the word and get more deviants involved, you won't get as much feedback. So make sure you're telling everyone about this.
What about those winners you said you were going to announce in this journal?
Don't think I forgot about any of you. I haven't. Both RoamingShadow and Liz-DarkWarrior have won 50. Liz-DarkWarrior also won a critique and RoamingShadow also won our Special Promotion prize which is a poetry commission from DrippingWords.
Critique winners, please note the group with the piece you'd like to receive feedback on. Points winners will receive their points shortly and commission winners will be contacted by the artist.
