At SRP, we believe that a strong author/beta relationship is integral to the creative writing process. We match authors of multi-chapter stories with a team of betas, each specializing in specific areas of writing. Our betas continue working with you through five chapters, getting to know you and your characters, after which you can decide together if you want to continue or try out a different beta's style.
We’ve paired up with TwiFic Central to get more exposure for our authors. TwiFic Central teasers are posted each Wednesday evening and are tweeted to more than 5600 fanfiction readers, as well as hundreds more with feed subscriptions. Fanfiction.net summaries leave a lot to be desired, but your banner and teasers just might catch the attention of some new readers & reviewers!
Writing a good story is just half the battle. Now you have to get the word out, and we can certainly help with that! Every multi-chapter fic we beta is eligible to be added to our SRP Fic Tweets, going out to all our Twitter followers every time you update. Need a little more? How about submitting your banner and story summary to be posted on our tumblr or rec'ing it in our Facebook group? What are you waiting for?
Their or they're? Comma or semicolon? WTF is an appositive?!?
