The Website of S.Bee (Writer)
Please be kind. Some writers lack confidence in their skills, so try
to be diplomatic and tactful. On the other hand, we do value honesty.
Think how the writer can learn from you and give practical ways of how the story can be improved.
It would be useful for the reader to know what genre the story is romance, twist in tale, etc plus a word count is helpful too.
You can give as much feedback as you want. Of course, theres
no guarantee of success but you never know! Bear in mind the writers
We send every member our feedback on all work, as we dont want to leave anyone out.
If a piece of work clashes with another being sent out, dont worry. We will all catch up eventually!
Maintaining Confidentiality: THIS IS IMPORTANT! Our names and e-mails addresses will be kept confidential within Fiction Addiction, and we agree not to pass them on or sell to any other outside party, as we dont want to be bombarded with offers of writing courses, etc.
Completely FREE of charge. All it costs is your time and effort.
If you havent got time to give feedback, because of work,
family, holidays, etc please drop us all a quick line explaining this.
We all have other commitments and we should all understand. If, any time you are unable to contribute, please let us all know.
If you send your story to several people in FA, you have more
than one witness to say that the story is yours. You can easily prove
copyright by the date stamp on your e‐mail and PC.
If this worries you, dont send work just correspond!
