Short Story Feedback: 6000 Words
Have you just finished a short story and want some critical feedback on it? Do your friends not know what to say beyond, "I liked it, I guess"? I can help you out! My services for one short story (or multiple short stories) up to 6000 words include:
*Clear, concrete thoughts on what works well (and what doesn't). This includes:
*** world building
***overall writing style
***and anything else that strikes me as I read.
*Suggestions for further reading (if applicable).
Genres I most often read for fun include literary fiction, science fiction, fantasy, and mysteries.
My services do NOT include:
*Fast-tracking your work for publication
I strive to be specific and helpful with feedback. When possible, I'll offer a solution (or potential solution) to what I perceive as an issue. Please note, however, that I'm only one person and we all have our quirks and blind spots! Ideally you should get feedback from a few readers with any project.
Training & Qualifications
I have a BA in Creative Writing from Hamilton College, which necessitated multiple fiction and poetry workshops, and I've belonged to and even maintained feedback and critique groups since I graduated, so I have experience reading and critiquing a wide spectrum of work. Additionally, I'm a voracious reader across a variety of genres.
