The mods won’t force anyone to use a particular beta. If you’ve got someone you usually work with, you can go ahead and continue to work as you usually do. But for those who don’t usually work with a beta reader, or who want to work with someone new, this post is one place you can look for a beta for your big bang story.
Writers: please comment with brief details about your project (fiction or non-fiction, genre, pairing, length). Alternatively, reply to any beta who has offered her services below to request her help.
Please don’t ask for a beta until you’ve got at least part of your project written. A beta needs something to work with. If you need help before you’ve really begun you may be better off asking for a cheerleader, which is a separate post.
Beta readers: please reply to writers to offer your help or leave a comment of your own to offer your services. Please say something about your strengths as a beta (plot, grammar, character voice etc.) and whether there is anything you would not want to beta (e.g. any pairings you dislike).
We recommend you track this post so you will be notified by LJ when a new beta request is posted in the comments.
The mods will watch this post and we’ll try to ensure that every writer who asks for help gets a beta reader. Don’t forget, though, that this isn’t the only place you can look for a beta reader. A lot of other forums and communities in the fandom allow beta requests, too. If you know of any specifically for Almost Human writers, let us know in the comments and we'll add them to this post.
