I had a great time on the last critique contest, and with things winding down for the year, this seems like a great opportunity to do it again. Here's the deal. Second verse, same as the first.
What's the prize? I will critique the first two pages of your manuscript (maximum of 750 words), here on the blog. All genres welcome, though you might have a look at my submission guidelines to see what I'd say are my areas of expertise. In other words, I'll happily critique your military thriller, but I'm not as well-versed in how it fits into its genre.
How do I enter? Leave a comment on this post. You've got till Friday, December 21 to enter. I'll use a random number generator to pick the winner. One entry per person, please!
What's the catch? If you enter and are chosen as the winner, you agree to let me post your pages here on the blog; this is a public critique. You needn't use your real name if you'd prefer to stay anonymous, but if you'd like me to I will include a link to your website as part of the post.
Who's eligible to enter? Everybody except my clients and the clients of my SJGA colleagues. Sorry, guys. I think this will be most useful to those writers who are as-yet unpublished, but I'm not going to make that decision for you.
What's the deadline again? Friday, December 21-- the contest is open till I close comments on this post.
Spread the word, and don't forget to leave a comment to enter. Good luck!
