Yay! It's time for a critique party! The sub window opens Thursday, April 30th, 9am to 6pm EST, or until the twenty slots fill up.
If you haven't seen the entrance guidelines yet, find them HERE. Failure to follow guidelines will result in deletion without notification.
All entrants will be notified if they made it in. Those who make it in will be given their entry's number.
After the sub window closes, entries will be posted on my blog, and links to the entries will be posted at the bottom of this post on Friday, May 1st.
RULES FOR THE CRITIQUE ROUND:
1. The first critique round will be open from Friday, May 1st until 1pm, Friday, May 8th. There will be a revision round afterward from Saturday, May 9th to Wednesday, May 13th.
2. Entrants must critique the first five entries before and below their number. So, if you are entry #6, you will critique entries #1-5 and then #7-11. If you are entry #1, then critique #16-20 and #2-6, etc. Feel free to critique more! And if you are simply a spectator dropping by, feel free to leave your two cents! I already have some awesome tweeps who have offered to add their comments.
3. When you critique, always say something positive about the writer's work! No bashing, rude remarks, or "getting back" for criticism you might receive. Note: the comments will be unmoderated. Therefore, please do not use profanity, as I have a large MG-age blog audience. Foul comments will be deleted without exception.
If you have any questions about the rules, feel free to ask!
Now here's the fun part! We'll be hanging out on Twitter throughout the week using the #YayYA hashtag. Since it's a party, we'll have fun questions to answer throughout! Feel free to participate whether you enter or not.
