I need a checker and some kind of beta-test editor and critic. Is there a resource out in the web, where I can find myself one?

Vote to close; off-topic, as per meta. – Neil Fein Nov 24 '10 at 3:40
@neilfein: I disagree -- Daniel isn't asking for critiques, he's asking where one goes to find that sort of thing. Identifying resources for writers is definitely on-topic. – HedgeMage Nov 24 '10 at 3:47
@HedgeMage - You're correct. (I'd unvote to close if I could.) – Neil Fein Nov 24 '10 at 4:02
@neilfein: I'm not sure, but I think you can cancel the close vote using the same link you did to cast it. – HedgeMage Nov 24 '10 at 4:08
@HedgeMage - I tried that right off. Not the end of the world, the vote will expire in time. – Neil Fein Nov 24 '10 at 4:09

+1 Just for knowing how to use the word "comprise" properly. – StrixVaria Nov 26 '10 at 2:03
Pedanticism pays off. (Only, there's no such word as pedanticism.) – Dawn Dec 1 '10 at 3:47

I would second the recommendation for Critique Circle. There are a lot of helpful resources there if you take the time to become familiar with the community. – Steven Drennon Aug 16 '11 at 1:48

I've been a member of Online Writing Workshop for Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror for a couple of years. I left because I didn't have enough time but the service was very good.

How it works.
