I will look at the 5k.
I've a house full of family at the moment (OK, just the normal 2, but I feel surrounded). So this will be tomorrow (3/27)

Did you mean Q2?

I have a 9k piece that I'm debating submitting. Would love a second pair of eyes, if I could send it over to anyone?
Offering the same as the others, any last minute crits needed, feel free to send over!

Would anyone be up for critiquing a 1600 word piece for Q2?

I know that is a super quick turn around. So, no worries if it is not doable. I also know such a super short story stands little chance of placing, but--well--I want to give it a go anyway.

I can handle one that short as well.
If you don't mind getting it back 3/31, I can be done by morning. Maybe 9am. Up to you.

That would be Great!
Even by noon or early afternoon would give me time, unless it is a complete re-write. wotf005

Dustin, can you PM me your email address. The one I have is getting a failed notice. And I cannot get my PMs to you to leave my Outbox.

I think the crits from Will and Dustin will probably be all I can read, absorb, and take into consideration this go around. But I do appreciate the generous offer on such short notice. wotf008

I'm available to give long or short crits.
I have a 12.5k piece that I'd certainly take comments on, but given the amount of time left, I'm ok if I get no offers. LOL
