Beta Reading & Editing

50


50 simbi per session - Virtual OK

With self-publishing becoming popular, it's easier than ever to get your book out there. However, it also means you have to either do all the work -- marketing, formatting, cover design, editing, ect. -- yourself, or you'll have to pay someone else to do some of those things for you. And even if you're going the traditional route, agents and publishers still expect a fairly polished piece. That's where I come in. I will go through a fiction manuscript that is under 100k words and pick out what's good, what needs work, and clean up any spelling and grammar errors that may be there. I'm open to all genres, though I tend to prefer speculative fiction.

Training & Qualifications


I have a Bachelor's Degree in English with a concentration in Creative Writing. I was also a member of the creative writing club at college, where we all had to critique each other's work.

Availability & Preferences


Any day.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

I think Simbi is a great opportunity for people like me to get out and do things for others and use our skills, especially for those who are short on cash.

About Sam Beringer

I'm a recent graduate from UIC with a fresh Bachelor's Degree in English (Cumme Laude), with a concentration in Creative Writing (fiction), and a minor in Sociology. I love writing, as well as editing...; if I can't get famous off my own work, then I'd like to at least take pride in helping someone else. I also like to bake, decorate cakes (mostly piping; haven't gotten the hang of fondant and gum paste yet), cosplay, play video games, and cuddle with my guinea pigs.show more
