I will beta-read your short story and provide feedback in the form of in-line comments and a reader report. The reader report will be about one page long (typically under 500 words), and will address your story in terms of structure, plot, characterization, dialogue, and language.
I will be 100% honest in my feedback, and will note your story’s strengths and its defects. If it’s good, I’ll let you know. If it’s bad, I will tell you, and I will provide actionable advice on how to correct the parts of the story that don’t work. My goal is to find the heart of your story and guide you towards it. I will tell you what parts you should be cut, what parts need reworking, and what parts resonate with the reader. By the time you finish reading the reader report I provide to you, you will know how to rewrite your story to take it to the next level.
Although I will not proofread the work, please comment in your request if you would like for me to fix minor typographical, punctuation, grammar errors, etc. in the text as I note them.
