I've got a short story that could use some fresh eyes and I know there's a few out there that're in the same boat. I'm proposing this: Why don't we exchange stories? To be clear, this isn't going to be a thorough review kind of thing- where we go line by line and dissect- rather, I'd like it to be a simple read through followed by a paragraph or two summation of your/my thoughts. Why do it this way? Well, because I feel like the workshop is a clunky mechanism that favors the thorough review of short, broken, first drafts. My work, and your work (hopefully), is not a first draft. It's far too long to utilize the workshop effectively, and someday I'd like to see it published. It's my understanding that having it float around for eternity on an internet forum might stand in the way of that. If this sounds like something that'd interest you then please PM me. I look forward to hearing from you.
