July Beta Reader Match Up & Fundraiser
Are you looking for beta readers, some of whom might potentially become
writing group members down the line?
Are you wanting to be matched up with those
writing in your genre and time zone,
so they can critique your work as you critique theirs at the same time?
Your manuscript doesn't have to be complete to sign up!
In July, you'll register and submit your work
consisting of 3000 words.
The deadline to submit is the 31st of July.
On the 1st of August, Bianca will match you up with between 2-6 other writers
depending on how many writers sign up.
She'll send each group their submissions along
with instructions of how to critique the work.
After that, it's up to you to set up a date when you'll
either all meet up virtually to discuss your work
or just send each other your written critiques.
Whatever works best for you!
Submit 3000 words in a Word document.
If they aren't opening chapters, you need to provide a summary
so your beta readers have context for the submission.
You may ask 2-5 specific questions within the same document
for your beta readers to address.
Cost: USD $30/CAD $40
(This service is usually USD $20 per match up but Bianca is raising funds for
Keletso Mopai to finish her MFA at
The University of Cape Town in South Africa.
$10 from each registration will go to Keletso's university fees).
