What to expect when submitting work for critique: *Read Before You Post*
- Please limit posts to 1000 words or less.
- If your post contains graphic sexual content, violence or obscenity, please make a note in the subject line.
Writers.net members offer honest and unbiased critique. When you post a writing sample for critique, you may receive responses about everything from mechanics (spelling, grammar & punctuation) to style and storyline/plot issues.
Check out previous threads for examples of what you can expect, but in general be prepared: Critiques at WN don't pull punches - the criticism can hurt, but a compliment received here really means something. You've got an opportunity to improve through posting here, thanks to the experience and wisdom of others who have been in your shoes.
Bottom line: If you want constructive criticism, if you want to identify areas in need of improvement, and if you want help making those improvements, this is the right place to post your work. You won't find a bunch of people telling you how great your work is, without offering any commentary on the rough spots... but that's all to the good.
Please be aware that WN does reserve the right to remove posts and threads in the event of terms of service violations, but we do not guarantee that your post will be removed upon request. If you have posted your work for critique, and WN members have taken the time to provide feedback, your thread will *not* be deleted. Individual post-deletion requests will be taken into consideration on a case-by-case basis, but please understand that unless there is an overriding privacy concern, WN will most likely not remove your work or comments from the forums.
