GUIDELINES AND SCHEDULE FOR CRITIQUES:
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.
1. The first critique round will be open from Saturday, July 25th until 1pm, Saturday, August 1st. There will be a revision round afterward from Saturday, August 1st to Wednesday, August 5th.
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 hard 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!
Throughout the party, we'll be hanging out on Twitter with the hashtag #YayYA with fun questions to answer and discuss!
