Very glad to discover the beta read option exists. I have been working under the assumption that it was meant to be written without feedback prior to submission (this is only my second contest). The limit of reading I have had was purely for grammar and then just by my partner who was under strict instructions not to give me any content/style feedback. A beta read through would/will be a great option...it probably would have made a big difference in my round 2 micro-fiction story that no one seemed to get at all!

I understand how crazy this sounds because it's so late, but if anyone needs a last minute look over for romance, comedy, or romcom, hit me up! Good luck!

My son is doing the contest for the first time. He's 16 and just added himself to the spreadsheet (forum name: theenzo). He's new, so...you know. Don't be too mean. :-)

Thanks for organizing this! Just added my name... would love to start with a reader experienced in the Flash Fiction to let me know if my location isn't prominent enough.. don't want to be DQ'd.. trying to finish up now, but could think of a way to drastically edit it, if that would be a better plan... just not sure what I should do right now..

I usually send a pdf of my story with the inquiry so that it saves 
time of gong back and forth. That way if they are willing they have 
the story and can send theirs before starting on yours. If they don't 
want to, no harm done.

Check out the spreadsheet linked above and add your details, specifying whether you are "open" and accepting beta read requests or "closed". In my experience most people like to do swaps where you review their story in exchange but its up to you. 

From there you can contact anyone on the sheet who's open (just check they're not in your group / are interested in your assigned genre) and shoot them an email asking if they'd mind beta reading your story. If they are, great! Send it through, they give you tips, etc etc.

(Just FYI - usually we do beta reading entirely by email/google doc - do NOT post your story on the forums or anywhere else until NYC has sent out the SECOND round of emails after submission giving everyone permission to post).

Hope that helps! :)
