Betas

The following lovely souls are here to help you with all of your writing needs. They will check grammar, punctuation, canon, give story ideas, help work out problems, double-check your research, and lots more. Please be sure to send an introductory email before actually sending a story to edit, and be sure to tell your new beta what you are looking for, if you need help with tone, punctuation, continuity, etc. This will give both of you a clearer idea of what you are looking for and help the process immensely!
