Hi, everyone! I’m seeking critique partners who are interested in supernatural, mystery, or contemporary – all genres that interest me best and am most familiar with.
I would love to work alongside fellow writers who’re also passionate about being published and want to embark on this journey with a companion. I’ve participated in writing programs and workshops before so I’m experienced in giving critiques, but not so much working one-on-one. Hopefully we can develop a mutual relationship together!
I’m primarily focused on young adult and new adult. I don’t mind critiquing fantasy, sci-fi, or romance, and although they aren’t my strongest, I’ll do my best to help! Please be warned that romance often goes over my head because I’m aro-ace so romantic elements and cues might be missed.
A bit about me – I’m an English major who loves reading YA as much as the classics. I watch a lot of anime (it’s one of my main areas for accruing inspiration) and play a lot of videos. I also enjoy the great outdoors and board games. My favorite authors include Maggie Stiefvater, Marie Lu. Alice Oseman, Victoria Schwab, and Riley Redgate. The book that epitomizes me as a reader is Radio Silence by Alice Oseman.
- Lyrical narratives with a hint of humor as well as narratives that are light and flows smoothly.
- I’m a huge sucker for urban fantasy and real-life mundanity! Protagonist struggling through high school? Kid can turn invisible but don’t know how to deal with it? I’ll be the first to read it.
- CHARACTERS. Especially those that I can gush over and are memorable.
- Unique plots and twists; taking a trope and spinning it on its head.
- Action and getting things done. A productive protagonist makes for an exciting story.
- Romance. It often goes over my head and I find it uninteresting. I can appreciate healthy and well-written relationships though, but rarely find them romantic until it gets spelled out in writing.
- High Fantasy. I have trouble visualizing mentally so descriptions of setting and fantastical elements are difficult to figure out.
- Science Fiction. If it’s light on the science, that’s fine. If it’s neurology and robots, I’ll politely skip it over.
Here are some best practices for reaching out to a potential CP:
- Include the link to your own CP Match profile! You can find it on your Dashboard. Don't have one yet? What are you waiting for? Anyone with a WriteOnCon.org account can make one!
- Introduce yourself a little, and say what appealed to you about their listing.
- Respect what's listed here in their profile. They took the time to fill it out, and they've included this information for a reason. Don't send a message about a book they specifically say is a Hard No, for example.
- Offer to swap a small sample of your works, so you can see if you're really compatible. First chapters are a good starting place.
- If one party no longer wants to continue the interaction, it's nobody's fault. Sometimes finding the right CP takes time.
Happy writing and CPing!
