I'm § Roseille ♥

I first made this forum as a member of less than a year, and the problem was the same back then as it is now: there are thousands of passionate writers eager to hone their craft... and a dearth of reviewers. I'm here to try to bridge that gap a bit, but while I'm here, I also want to encourage you to be part of the solution and go out there and provide kind and constructive feedback on other writing. To that end, I have decided to overhaul this forum; please feel welcome to post a link to a story or poem you want feedback on, but when you do, I also ask that you link to a recent (within the last month) public review you have given to another writer's work. (Don't know how to link to stories and reviews? Check this out: "Bitem Linking: Guide For Newbies"  ) There are no requirements re: format except that your linked review be at least the required minimum of 250 characters. Not sure where to start? Neither did I, at first. This may help:

On Giving Reviews  (E)
Are you speechless when you stare at that little reviewing box? Here are some tips.
#1065724 by § Roseille ♥

I only have a couple little rules; PLEASE read and follow them:
Requests breaking the rules will be ignored or deleted.

*Star**Bullet* I don't ask for gift points. I want to give back and foster a community of growth in the same way many generous and constructive reviewers have helped me grow over the years! Please have fun and make sure to peek at the rules before posting!

*Star**Bullet* Along with the bitem link to the item you'd like reviewed, remember to post a link to a recent, public review you've done. In order to make a review public, you simply have to check the "Make Public" option underneath the reviewing box.

*Star**Bullet* I will not review full novels. However, I'll gladly review the first chapter!

*Star**Bullet* Please post only one item at a time. I'll gladly accept up to two review requests per month from the same person. Feel free to request feedback on poems or works of fiction or creative nonfiction at or under 20KB.

*Star**Bullet* No erotica, though I will gladly review items at and under the GC rating. I enjoy grittily real and surprising stories. I do not enjoy reading lengthy depictions of explicit acts. Regardless of the item rating, the message body of your posts must remain at or under 13+, which is the forum rating.

*Star**Bullet* My goal as a reviewer is to be encouraging, constructive, and honest. I will make full use of the WDC rating scale. I have several years of experience as a college writing tutor and campus creative writing group co-leader. I believe that only through helpful, kind, and constructive feedback will writers grow. That doesn't mean I'm looking for reasons to rate low. I'll often give high ratings to items that deeply moved me, even if they contain a number of minor issues. If I send a rating at or under 3.5, I'm happy to return and re-evaluate if the writer has made edits.

*Star**Bullet* Sadly, I'm not an editing service. I will happily point out major errors I notice, but if there are 60 instances of run-on sentences, I will point out at least one, explain what the error is and how to fix it, and leave the remaining 50-something to the author. This habit of pointing out patterns of errors creates an environment in which writers can learn and grow.
