First Page Critiques

And a tiny contest.

The call for submissions begins today and ends Tuesday, June 14 @ 5 pm, CST.

First Page
250 word count

Email submissions to cdcoff(at)gmail(dot)com.

My rules:

  • Must be a follower of the blog to submit and critique other’s work.
  • Civility is paramount. Be polite. Be overly polite even.
  • Submissions should include Title, Genre, and Name. Note; the names WILL BE DELETED before I post.
  • Critique the submissions in the comment section.
  • If you wish to revise and post edited submission, do so in the comments section. But remember, you will lose your anonymity at that point.
  • Be prepared to back up your crits, btw. Research is the key.
  • Agented, Unagented, Completed or Work In Progress manuscripts

After deleting your name, I will post the submission for critiquing by our members.

If you submit for critiquing, please be prepared to crit others.

As for the Tiny Contest, I will critique the first ten pages of one submitter. Random.org will choose the winner.

Please comment on your blog and give Unicorn Bell a shout out. The more participants we have, the better the crits.

Okay *cracking knuckles* let’s get to it.

Submit your 250 word First Page to cdcoff(at)gmail(dot)com.
