Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a third-year Writing, Literature, and Publishing major who loves grammar and punctuation (particularly the oxford comma, which I took the liberty of adding to my major title even though it's not OFFICIALLY listed on my college website, and the semicolon, which you will never catch me misusing). I've taken a couple of publishing classes over the last few semesters at school, and a creative writing workshop class where I learned all about how to critique stories, but I really just enjoy the English language and would like to develop some experience editing stories in a more formal setting - this seems like the perfect opportunity.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm excellent at sentence structure. I've got a great eye for continuity errors, inherited from my dad, and I'm always on the look out for punctuation errors.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling is not my strongest, but with spell check and my trusty dictionary by my side, I have faith in my ability to catch your errors.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Any stories, honestly; I'd like experience editing things that I might not necessarily choose to read on my own.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Again, nothing is really "Not My Cup Of Tea" per say, though I would prefer to avoid anything too mature or explicit, simply because works in that genre aren't exactly something I frequently pick up and because I don't think I'd be able to dedicate the attention your writing requires if it's not something I feel comfortable reading. Other than that, anything else is fair game.
