Do you write short fiction? Do you crave feedback and an understanding of how you are doing? Well, I do and I was lucky enough to come across Marsha Ingrao’s Story Chat. The premise is simple enough: write a story under 1000 words and submit it to Marsha. This is a link to her site.
She will then schedule you as one of her story chats. This is mine. From there her readers, grand bunch that they are will begin a series of dialogues around your story: what works and what doesn’t; how it might be improved; where it was confusing; where it really intrigued and struck a chord. All the time you are encouraged to interact with your audience; Marsha will and her insights are sound, thoughtful and pointed.
Then, having allowed the comments to reach a natural conclusions she produces a wrap. This is what she did with my story.
It is an exceptionally committed piece of support for writers and cannot fail but to help anyone improve.
I heartily recommend you check this out; you will surely not be disappointed.
