These are just a few ideas of what we think you should include in your post asking for a critique partner. The more information you can include the more chance of meeting the perfect partner. So include things like: What length is your work? What genre are you writing? If your work fits more than one then say so paranormal romance for instance could also be m/m or have light bondage. How quickly you require it returned? Some people work quicker than others or have more time to give. Do you want to send a full manuscript or a few chapters at a time? This allows for a building of trust and confidence in both yourself and your partner. What sort of help do you require? someone to help ‘edit’ your work or just a sounding board, maybe something in the middle? What sort of partner do you want? Someone who writes the same genre as you or perhaps someone who enjoys reading your genre different people can offer you different experiences and expertise. How much experience do you have? A partner who works at a much higher level than you could become counter-productive regardless of how well meaning they are. And of course give a blurb of your WIP you’ll have to write one eventually you might as well do it now.
