For a long time there have been requests for a place to offer free services, exchange critiques, find beta readers, and related non-paid collaborations. This collaborative projects forum finally fills that need. The Collaborative Projects forum is a place for established forum members to network and seek out partners for various writing-related projects. Specifically, when creating a thread you can designate a prefix for either beta reading, free design services, free editing services, Writing Workshop review exchanges, or other collaborative projects. The purpose of the collaborative projects forum is to enable Active Members (90 days, 100 posts) to better apply and progress their writing through networking and exchanges. This forum is not a place to advertise your product, service, or website, link to off-site projects or services, or offer paid services. Any services - such as book cover design or editing - must be freely offered or exchanged for other services (ex: a critique for a critique). Advertising paid services may result in a warning or ban. Any questions, comments, or suggestions for improving this forum should be directed as responses to this thread. This is a new section of the site, so suggestions on how to improve it are welcome. I expect this section and it's rules to evolve over the first few weeks. The Collaboration FAQ has been added, and should be used as the point of reference for Collaboration Forum Rules and standards.
