Looking for a critique/ Swap. SF 6K words

I'm on the third rev of a short story. SF, not too hard. It's about 6K words.
I'm looking for someone who would be willing to critique and improve my story so I can win (or at least get an HM)!
I'm also be willing to critique for you.

Please PM me if interested.
