Hello and welcome to our community.


Betas for hire (or BfH) is a brand new community devoted to helping writers find betas or editors. Our job is to help match up writers with a specialized beta who is hand selected and compatible with that particular writer.


More about us:


This is a community for not only fanfiction, but also for original prose. Anyone is welcome.
Our community is also very very active, and soon our community will have contests and awards. All posts are moderated, as is membership. In general we just want betas or editors to join the community; writers should contact us according to the instructions below.


If you want a beta:


Contact us at Betaforhire@yahoo.com with a subject of 'Need Beta.' Also, in the email please answer the following
questions:


What is your Name or what you preferred to be called?


What is your LJ username?


In which of the following groups do you belong in? (This is important
so please don't lie)

18 and up

13-17

12 and below

(Please note that your age group will not prevent you from getting a beta; this information is used to match you appropriately.)

Do you write fanfiction or original prose?


If you write fanfiction, what fandom(s) do you write?


What genre are your stories? (see bottom of page)


What is the rating of your story or stories?


Are there any specialties in your stories? (see bottom of page)


Have you read and understood the rules?


If you use our community to secure a beta reader, we ask that you credit BOTH the beta and the community. Please treat your beta with respect. They are not being paid; this is solely volunteer work. If you are unhappy with the beta we partner you with, let them know politely and contact us again to be re-matched. Anyone who is rude or disrespectful to either a beta or a mod will be cut from the community and their username added to the wall of shame. Thank you.
