Short Story Critique

Item Name & Description: Short Story Critique

I will read and critique a short story of up to 7,000 words. My fiction has appeared in the Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of the Year, and I was a reader for Fantasy Magazine (now Lightspeed) for two years. I write literary speculative fiction and am willing to read in almost any genre.

Starting Bid: $50

Notes: Would prefer not to read horror and explicit rape/torture scenes. I will deliver the critique within 30 days of receiving the story, which may be sent any time before August 2013.

Bidding opens on Saturday, February 9, 2013 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time and closes Sunday, February 24, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time. More Information.

  2. Wonderful! I bid $60
