Teen Wolf BetasList of Betas

1/3/13 - this information is going to be out-of-date for a couple of days. Go to How to Post for accurate posting information and templates.

This community's purpose is to bring together writers and betas. We welcome writers of RPF as well as crossovers.

There are two ways to connect with a beta in this comm. You can post a request for a beta and wait for requests to roll in. You can also look through the offers posted by betas and look for someone whose style and interests seem to suit your fic. Posting a request is probably the best way to go if you're on a time crunch.

If you have an LJ account, join the community in order to post. If you do not have an LJ account and do not wish to create one, email your offer or request to teenwolfbetas at gmail dot com, and I'll post it for you. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to comment on this post or PM fleete

For Beta Readers

Betas who wish to offer up their services should tag their post "offer" and use the following format:

Other languages you'd be able to beta in:
How long a 5000 word fic typically takes you:
Any additional information: (availability, willing to cheerlead/audience as well, special knowledge that might be useful)

Betas, please remember to edit your posts when appropriate, e.g. if you are unavailable for a time, or temporarily too busy to take on longer works. Keep your info up-to-date!

For Writers

When asking for a beta reader, do so politely and provide as much information as possible. When posting a request, please tag it "request" and use the following format:

Genre: action, humor, angst, AU, fluff, kink, PWP, etc
Length or word count:
Type of beta you'd like: SPaG, plot development, Ameripick
Short summary:

Edit your post when you've found a beta reader (or two or three or as many you need). But please edit your post when you're settled. DO NOT post your entire story. Once you've found a beta, decide between the two of you how you will communicate.


Beta readers are free to say no to any request. Don't be offended; they may be busy that week, or your fic might not be their cup of tea.

Our sister community is teenwolfwriters, the Teen Wolf Writer's Workshop. Go there to get and give friendly, non-evaluative feedback on short pieces of fanfic. It's a great place to develop your writing skills!

These rules and post templates are modelled on the merlin_betas community.
