Dear fellow essayists,
If you have an essay, familiar essay, or memoir you would like peer reviewed, this is the place to post it.
Click "Nonfiction," and then click "Add Topic." The "Topic Title" should be the title of the essay. Use the text area to give your reviewers any background you want to share about the piece. Click "attach file" and attach your essay as a .pdf, .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .txt file. Make sure you click the "subscribe to this topic" box, and wait for the reviews to follow. This forum is private, so if you know someone you want to review your story, they'll have to subscribe to the forum and be approved.
Reviewers, here is the format we follow for our reviews. Always be kind! If you are unnecessarily cruel, you will be banned from this group. Keep in mind, this is someone else's story. Don't try to rewrite it.
- 1st paragraph - describe the essay as you understood it.
- 2nd paragraph - point out the parts of the story that worked well.
- 3rd paragraph - discuss things that might be improved upon in the story.
- Concluding paragraph - thumbs up or thumbs down? Other suggestions.
