Building Community: How to be a Great Beta Reader or Critique Partner

As writers, it’s incredibly important that we build community. Otherwise, this art we pursue can prove to be a lonely endeavor. Yet there is a lot of ambiguity around how to grow with, and support other writers. Here are concrete tips for being a great beta-reader or critique partner.

Bio: Elise Holland is the editor of 2 Elizabeths, a literary magazine focused on short fiction and poetry, with an emphasis on romance and women’s fiction. She’s written for Writer’s Digest, Jane Friedman, DIY MFA and Darling Magazine. When she’s not curled up with her laptop either writing or editing, she can usually be found spending time with her sweet husband and very feisty Chihuahua.
