Beta Reading at HASA: 4. Conclusion
If you want a beta reader for your stories, HASA cannot find you one – only you can do that, by becoming an active member of HASA and other fandom communities, and by offering to beta read for other people. If everyone wants a beta reader but nobody is prepared to be one, then none of us is going to find a beta reader. From a purely selfish viewpoint, remember that beta reading for someone else will undoubtedly make you a better writer because you will become a better critic of your own work.
If you’re a new writer or new member and think you don’t know enough to be a beta reader, give it a go – you might be surprised at how effective you are!
Above all, please use all the resources at your disposal at HASA to get involved in beta reading – on both sides of the fence.
