Most people will already have their own beta reader, but hey, maybe they want to try someone new. A beta reader is a person who reads another person's written work with a critical eye, with the aim of improving grammar, spelling, characterization, and general style of a story before the author posts it up. All participants must get their fiction beta’d by at least one person.

Beta volunteer: Can we get some lovely volunteers to help our writers out? Betas are love, so comment below with the following text! Comments are unscreened.

Need a beta: If you are in need of a beta, then drop a note or just directly contact someone that volunteers below by replying to their comments.

Preferred Fandoms/Pairings: ASOIAF/GOT, almost anything involving Jon, Sansa, Robb, Bran, Asha, Daenerys.
Is there any type of fiction you would prefer to avoid beta'ing? 100% smut (some smut is fine); Stannis ships; Lannister-centric. Ask about particular kinks.
What are your strengths as a beta reader? I'm good at talking through logistical problems/writing blocks, thinking through characterization & character arcs, giving a reader's impression of pacing etc, SPAG.
What kind of turn around time can someone expect from you? It really depends on what you want. Something in-depth will take longer than a basic SPAG check. I'm happy to work at any stage of the process: brainstorming, outlining, partial draft, full draft. Happy to cheerlead/be accountability partner as well (I'm writing too).
