Thread Info

This discussion is a place for authors looking for a beta reader and members willing to offer beta reading services to "try each other on for size". You can use it to form an author-beta pair for either a single story or for a longer term relationship spreading over many stories. You can also use it if you are interested in forming a beta circle of perhaps three to five members who will work intensively together over the long term.

Members interested in offering beta reading services will be able to quickly find story extracts from authors who want betas. New members, who may be unclear what being a beta involves or unsure whether they can be a good beta, can try out the role and receive feedback. You may find it useful to read the research articles Beta reading at HASA and Beta reading samples to understand the different types of beta reading that exist and how beta readers work with authors.

To keep the process comfortable and smooth for participants, this forum will have more structure than most; we ask all involved to read and abide by the rules of the forum. These can be found in the threads How it works - authors and How it works - beta readers. If posts do not adhere to these rules, the poster will be asked to amend them. If the post is not amended, it will be deleted.

A beta relationship will need frankness, but we also remind everyone to please treat each other with civility when undertaking the tricky task of giving and receiving beta advice.
