Critiques 4 U

Hi, everyone! I’m hip deep in preparations for the DARA workshop I’ll be speaking at in Dallas (if you’re in the area, I’d love to see you there!). And in the process, I’ve discovered that I can only cram so much stuff in my brain. I need some down time, which always includes good reading material, so it’s time for

CRITIQUES 4 U!

Contest Closed!

If you’re working on a first page and would like some objective feedback, please leave a comment that includes: 

1) your email address. Some of you have expressed concern about making your email address public; if you’re sure that the email address associated with your WordPress account is correct, you don’t have to include it here. But if you do win and I’m unable to contact you through that email address, I’ll have to choose an alternate winner.

2) your story’s genre (no erotica, please)

Also, please be sure your first page is ready to go so I can critique it before next month’s contest rolls around. If it needs some work and you won’t be able to get it to me right away, I’d like to ask that you plan on entering the next contest, once any necessary tweaking has been taken care of. 🙂

ONLY ENTRIES THAT FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS WILL BE CONSIDERED

Three commenters’ names will be randomly drawn and posted tomorrow. If you win, you can email me your first page and I’ll offer my feedback. Best of luck!

The first page is vital – if it isn’t compelling, publishers and agents are unlikely to read further. My genre is literary fiction.
