To My Fellow YA Writers,
I’m participating in the C1Blitz competition by Freshly Squeezed Reads, however, my first chapter has been flagged as mature content and requires volunteer critiques now as I’m not eligible for teen reviews and my chapter will not be available for general viewing.
More information is down below to support my participation in this competition.
Request for assistance with stories with New Adult rated content from Administrators of Freshly Squeezed Reads.
We’ve been fortunate to get a number of schools involved in the teen critiques, however, the needs of these schools have derailed some of our plans and excluded a handful of entries from the teen review process, essentially stories which contain mature content and straddle the YA/New Adult categories. Those authors will be short on teen reviews and not eligible for this category and the entries won’t be available for general viewing. As a result, we are asking for help.
If you are willing to do a voluntary critique on any of these works, or know an older teen (17, 18, 19) who is comfortable with mature references (such as drugs, underage drinking, violence or suicide) and happy to do one, email email@example.com, and we will email you the content. You can return your critique by email.
The YA/NA stories available by email are: Amaranthos (contemporary, male main character), Tumble (contemporary, female main character), People and Other Breakable Things (contemporary, male main character), Ocean of Dreams (fantasy, male main character).
Thank you for your help guys!
