bavariansugarcookie: Hi I’m Tabitha, and I’m an English major (about to start my senior year). I’m interested in workshopping mystery, YA fiction, fantasy, and sci-fi fiction. I really have an eye for character development and characterization, as well as grammar and style. (I’m also willing to edit essays and papers, since I’m kind of in the same boat with college haha).
blackletteraviary: I’m 22, recently graduated from the University of Florida with a BS in Communications and Education. I’m particularly interested in poetry, all forms and genres thereof, but I also enjoy editing prose. I prefer flash fiction or short-shorts, but if it is in the horror/sci-fi/fantasy genre I am willing to critique longer stories as well. I have a pretty twisted sense of humor, and I’m not too squeamish, nor am I easily offended by profanity. I’m also fascinated in other-gender character development and the discussions surrounding them.

Hiya!! I just wanted to let you know that workshopper LadyJennJenn is absolutely flawless. She worked out everything I was having trouble with and offered very clear advice on how to fix the problems. Her spot on that list is very much well deserved! :D
somaticsedition: I’ll have a BA in Creative Writing as of spring 2013. I love reading and editing and have been writing since I was a child. I have been in tons of workshop environments for poetry, nonfiction, and fiction in many different genres so I’m willing to read and help out with anything. Send me anything and I’ll give you the best “critique” I can.
continuousconfusion: Saw your post and realized I had asks disabled. Sorry about that. I’m a 2011 graduate of Syracuse University. I got my B.A. in Writing and Rhetoric but I also minored in English and Textual Studies, focusing exclusively on fiction. I’ve taken multiple workshops including some graduate level course work. I’m interested in workshopping any genre but I have a special interest in sci-fi, fantasy and magical realism and I’m best with character development, dialogue and plot.
wemadetheworldstandstill: I have a degree in Print Journalism. I am currently a fashion/beauty blogger as well as a fiction writer. I’m in the middle of writing my first novel so my editing skills are pretty sharp. My writing is very descriptive. I love adding little details within my stories, so if you need any help in that area, I’m your girl.
theladyofthelens: I would like to be a workshopper. I’m a student in NC that’s studying motion picture and television production with a double concentration in screenwriting and directing as well as a creative writing minor. I host NaNoWriMo University for my school as my honors college project, focusing on workshops about setting, plot, and character development, mostly character development. I’m also very well versed in screenwriting formatting and writing market standard style. Feel free to ask me anything :)
hauntedtours: I have an MFA in Writing. I have multiple publications, in addition to creative writing teaching experience. Right now I am a writing teacher at a community college in California. My main focus is fiction, experimental fiction, maybe historical fiction? But I am open to poetry as well. Yes.
thelittlelottiediaries: Hello! I’d love to be a work-shopper for your blog. I’m a sophmore studying creative writing at the university of windsor in Canada and have been writing seriously for the past six years. I have also participated in NaNoWriMo for the past two years and have experience peer-editing other NaNo’rs manuscripts. I like genre pieces of short or long fiction, but I especially love long-fiction (novella - novel length). I look at both the technical aspect and the content of the piece :)
haleyandzoe: Hello! I’d like to be a workshopper : ) I am a senior studying English Literature. I have 3 years of experience in a Creative Writing Club editing people’s work. I’m best with short fiction and dramatic writing (plays and screenplays); I edit grammar/sentence structure stuff and content.
atcrepuscule: I’m Lindsay. I’m a junior creative writing student at the University of Central Florida. I specialize in non-fiction and poetry, but I’m taking a fiction workshop class this semester so I have experience in multiple genres of writing. I’m also working as an editor for my school’s undergrad lit mag. I would be very happy to help you with your piece!
sunsetgallows: I am a sophomore in college who is majoring in English and minoring in Creative Writing. I read fiction of any type, though horror, fantasy, and sci-fi are by-far my favorites. I love to proofread, edit, and aid in the story making process.
otherwaystolive-max: Hi, I’m a nineteen year old writer in dire need of writing contemporaries. I love reading, and focus more on dark fiction, stuff like Cormac McCarthy, Kurt Vonnegut, and Elizabeth Kelly in Apologize, Apologize!; something that really trawls character development. I’ve studied writing at Concordia and Capilano University, plan on majoring in UBC’s creative writing program next year, have studied with Brendan McLeod (2006 Three Day Novel Contest Winner), and would love to workshop with anyone!
submarinedreams: Hi! I’m Amy. I have a degree in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and I’ve taken creative writing workshop classes for fiction and personal narrative writing. I’d be happy to workshop any short fiction or creative non-fiction, especially if you are looking for advice on character development or plot structure/movement. I prefer workshopping pieces longer than 1000 words, but I will read flash fiction too if you send it to me. Cheers.
ahahblue: ive taken two different fiction/creative writing class and i guess i just read all the time. im interested in fiction in general, and specifically things like plot, dialogue and characterization. =]
elaineenicolee: Hello, I am Elaine. For the past two years, I have been attending an arts high school with a strong creative writing department. Therefore, I have been working on making writer’s writing better for a while. Before that, I was part of an online role-play community that critiqued each other’s work. I did that for two years as well. I edit fiction the best, especially centering around plot development and characterization. I can also edit creative non-fiction and journalism. I’m no good at editing poetry, unfortunately. I’m totally up for editing your work. You can submit it to my tumblr blog. When I send it back to you, I’d rather be able to send it to your email so that I can write directly on the text or use a windows processer to put notes. However, I can send critiques back on your tumblr blog as well, they just won’t be as efficient.
sunjamin: I’m a library technician in a university library. I used to proofread for people in my high school. I’m particularly good at catching spelling and grammar mistakes, but I can also edit for other things. I’m specifically interested in poetry and/or speculative fiction: science fiction, fantasy, cyberpunk, steampunk, time travel, etc. I will also beta fanfiction if it’s related to one of those genres or a fandom I follow.
bloodofthepen: I am a third-year English major entering my fourth year in college. I have particular interest in creative writing, and a minor in theatre, so I am qualified to help workshop scripts as well as prose and poetry. When workshopping a piece, I will focus on basic spelling/grammar, character, sound (usually for poetry, but I am willing to do this for prose), facts/research, dialogue, structure, and anything an author might request. I have particular experience with fantasy fiction, and have many resources on mythology/folklore as well as weaponry/social/political structure of the middle ages and Renaissance. Personally, I will offer suggestions that minimally impact the integrity of the work; I do my best to make sure any suggestions I give will not irrevocably alter the author’s voice or style.
acciolovesong: I am a college graduate with a degree in journalism. I currently serve as the managing editor for an online fiction news blog. I’m good at looking for writing structure, character development (I love writing character sketches), grammar and wordiness. I’ve been editing my fiction; I’ll be glad to look at yours.
peaceloveshenanigans: I’m a college senior psychology major working on a creative writing minor. I’ve had a passion for storytelling and writing since second grade. I’m best at editing for grammar and punctuation details, but I also get very into the feeling of a story and can tell if some element or dialogue seems off and needs work.
hannibal-duchess: I’m minoring in writing and rhetoric at the University of Toronto, and have taken extensive writer’s craft classes. Editing is my passion, and I always give quality feedback on what the story needs, may be lacking, and how it makes me feel.
Sometimesisaystuff: I’m an English Literature and Language student, a freelance writer and I also do a bit of proofreading. I like poetry and YA fiction but I’m open to read anything under any genre. I’m happy to proofread and give feedback for whatever you can throw at me :)
puzzlingcreativity: I have a B.A. in Creative Writing (which is more often I think should be called BS for what it really is) and I read tons of modern and contemporary literature (my favorite’s Haruki Murakami). I’m good at looking over narrative arcs, finding opportunities for stories to claify/expand/shorten/condense, and for elements relating to overall cohesion and style. Basically just, does the story work? Yes, I’m good at answering that question thoughtfully.
poeticliaison: I got over excited and stopped reading-I read a lot of YA, and I wrote screenplays. I am fairly good at making dialogue sound authentic.
bellanote: I did the school newspaper in high school, I took a few creative writing classes last semester in college, and I am the epitome of the “Grammar Nazi”. Many of my friends send in their term papers to me and they always tell me they love the help and insight I give :)
tragicoptimism: I’m Lindsay. I graduated from high school one year ago and am currently looking for a good college to attend. I’ve been passionate about reading and storytelling my whole life. My main interests/strengths are poetry and short fiction. I’m best at helping make things flow and thinking of better descriptive words. It’s my pleasure! I’m currently starting to try to get some of my writing published, and I need to keep myself in check to stay productive with writing.
electric-snake: I’ll read most anything that isn’t Sci Fi or Romance, and give point-by-point critiques of what does or doesn’t work in a story and why, along with my overall impression of the piece. Sort of a jack of all trades, master of none thing going on.
quaint-camera: I’m a college sophomore majoring in art/writing and have been writing/reading since I was a kid. Genres I prefer: fantasy, sci-fi, general fiction, poetry. Strengths: Giving a breakdown of my exact reactions as I read (sentence-by-sentence if needed); picking out the parts that stood out/affected me and explaining why; grammatical/spelling errors; making general suggestions for improvement.
