Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I work as an English Teacher in a secondary school in England. I have a BA in English with Creative Writing, and will soon be starting a Master in Critical Approaches to Children's Literatures. I therefore believe I have the potential to be an excellent writer, both in terms of the more day-to-day checking of spelling and grammar, and also when looking at over-arching themes and /br /

If you want me to be your beta-reader, I do expect that you will have made at least a cursory check of any material you send. If your work is littered with spelling mistakes, it needs to be put through a spell check /br /

You may have to be patient. Workload in my job ebbs and flows, so I will be faster to respond at some times than other.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
As an English Teacher, I'm excellent at checking spelling, punctuation and grammar. I'm pretty good at identifying what is done well, and what needs more work.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am British, so will probably change spelling to British rather than American without even thinking about it! I can sometimes be over critical, but I will do my best to balance any problems I spot with positives.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I enjoy quite a wide field of stuff, but probably fantasy, young adult, school life, LBGTQ and dystopian fiction are those I'll find easiest to enagage with.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not a huge fan of horror, or anything particularly explicit. I like what I read to be at least some what believable, so if your writing is mainly fulfilment, I may struggle.
