YouWriteon Critiques from 
Leading Publishers

On YouWriteOn the ten highest rated opening chapters each month receive feedback from leading publishers. This includes from Editors for publishers such as Random House, Orion and Bloomsbury, who publish authors such as JK Rowling, Stephen King and Dan Brown.

To participate, simply click here to join for free and upload your opening chapters and they will be randomly assigned to be reviewed and rated by other members. After between 7 to 10 reviews you will usually start to receive a collective viewpoint of what works and what needs development in your story. The advantages of randomly assigned feedback are that you get the viewpoint of a range of diverse readers, this will not usually be like reviews from people who know you, but a collective viewpoint of how your story is perceived by a range of readers.
