Christina | 8 comments I am of the opinion that a good writer should be able to edit. If they can not, it is in their best interest to practice. I have an excellent critique partner, without him I would be lost in a mess of ideas. Let me help you clean up your work, as a way for me to enrich my take on language while giving another writer what my partner has given me.

Kit (KitForbes) | 5 comments I agree. Everyone should learn to self edit as best they can. Still, fresh eyes spot things we don't see because we're too close to the story.

What genres do you write or like to read?

ChessPawn | 109 comments Hello Christina,

I was wondering if you would be interested in working with me on my historical fiction manuscript. It's set during WWII, in Poland. I can send you a longer synopsis if you think you might like to help me work on my next round of edits.

You can message me here, or at AWCardiff@gmail.com

Thanks, hope to hear from you!
-Anna

Bethany Atazadeh (BethanyAtazadeh) | 33 comments Hi Christina :)

I have a YA Sci-Fi/Dystopian novel, about 80,000 words currently. Hoping to begin working with my beta readers on August 1st. My goal is to send five short chapters out once a week (with a few questions sprinkled in), for approximately six weeks.

If you're open to reading it, I have the first two chapters here on google docs to check it out:

Message me if you're interested, and thanks for considering! :)
