Short story critique

Originally published at Con or Bust by E. Lily Yu. Please comment there ( comment(s)).

Item Name & Description: Short story critique

I will read and critique a short story of up to 7,000 words. My fiction has appeared in McSweeney’s, Clarkesworld, Boston Review, Kenyon Review Online, and both Strahan and Horton’s Year’s Best anthologies. I am willing to read in almost any genre.

Starting Bid: $50

Notes: Would prefer not to read horror and explicit rape/torture scenes. I will deliver the critique within 30 days of receiving the story, which may be sent any time after July 1, 2015. (If sent prior to July, which is fine, be aware that I may not be able to respond until July 30.)

Bidding opens Monday, April 20, 2015 at 12:01 a.m. Eastern (time zone conversions). It closes Sunday, May 3, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. (time zone conversions, countdown) unless bids are received in the last ten minutes (learn more).
