POETRY BETA READERS NEEDED
« on: October 02, 2019, 04:15:10 PM »
Hello Everyone,

I am new to the publishing world and am attempting to get my feet wet by first self publishing a poetry book, while I work on finalizing my short stories & novel. I have compiled 43 poems into 6 sections. Total word count for the book is 9,461 but I will divvy up sections between beta readers & you can decide if you'd like to read more or not. These poems are about sex, friendship and struggle with self. They can be quite frank so if language or content needs to be of a clean nature for you, then this is not for you. I'm looking for 20 beta readers who can assist me, from head to toe, on any edits (including if an entire poem or section should just be erased) that may need to be done with this compilation of poems before moving on to a professional editor.

Thank you all in advance! XD

Hi and welcome to My Writerís Circle, LOLAAIDRIEN3 .

You'll find Blue stickies  (with the push-pin icons) at the top of each board. Read these. Theyíll help you find your way around and acquaint you with the local customs.

Have fun exploring the site.

Itís considered good manners to critique a few pieces in Review My Work or Review My Poetry before asking for reviews yourself.  Youíre more likely to receive helpful feedback after youíve contributed a bit.

Enjoy your time on the forum,
