Our Beta Readers
We target certain online and offline communities that attract the right kind of reader for our platform. This includes advertising in hand-picked literary magazines (Granta, Paris Review, Ploughshares, Guernica, P&W etc). After a reader joins the platform, they’re continually evaluated for both their fit for the platform and also their individual preferences to help match the most suited work.
We also offer “advanced controls” that allow authors to manually approve any readers before they can see your work. Readers are required to complete a short bio about themselves which you’ll be emailed and asked to approve or deny. This may reduce the number of readers you’ll get, but it gives a greater level of control. You can also choose to limit the number of readers that are granted access to your work. And you can use both options together.
