Are you a struggling author looking for some basic help with your story? Do you want to help out with other people's stories?

If either of those are the case, then this is the group for you!

This group's primary function is to provide writers with a selection of individuals who are willing to help out with stories. Authors can contact any of these "editors" to help them create the best story they can. These editors can be used for anything from detailed proofreading to basic decision making on your story.

We are here to help you!

Remember to check out the Forum for group updates and discussions. Keep thread notifications active!

Any questions can be submitted here in the forum.

If you're looking for some general help or want to advertise your story a bit, visit any of these subreddits /r/Mylittlefanfic, /r/MLPwritingschool.

Skype Group Chat is ACTIVE!

Send your Skype account name to an admin if you want to be added!

For Writers:

All of the editors will be displayed in this document. There, they are organized into groups based on what type of story they prefer to edit for. All you have to do is select the category that your story fits under which will take you to the corresponding list of editors for that genre.

From there you can look through the editor's information to help you decide who would benefit your story best.

Be respectful to the editors! The editors are working by choice. They do not have to help you if you are disrespectful towards them! It is ultimately their decision whether or not they will agree to help. Applications should be sent to the respective editors through Fimfiction private messaging.

Don't forget to add your story to the group if you choose to work with one of our editors! It helps the group out a lot and is much appreciated!

Optional: Did you have a good experience with one of the editors? Let us know! Tell us how the editor helped you, what you liked and/or disliked about them. How can they or the group improve? Send your review including the name of the editor to an admin so we can give credit where it is deserved and improvement where it is needed!

If you are looking for some general help from more than one person, submit your question to this subreddit!

[size=16]If you are having trouble finding an editor or need assistance, feel free to contact any of the admins found here.

For Editors

If you're looking to help other people with their stories, then you have come to the right place.

Maybe it's because you feel like you have a lot of advice to offer to other writers. Maybe it's just because you don't think you can write a story yourself but would still like to contribute. Whatever reason you may have, you can easily become an editor if you follow these steps:

1. Read the set of rules found here.

2. Fill out a message to any one of the admins or contributors with the subject: Editor Application. The application MUST be in the following format:

Username: (include link to user page and google account if applicable)  *

Short Description: *

Preferred Story Type(s): *

Preferred Story Length:

Refused Story Type(s): *

Experience:

Description: *

Additional Notes:

*required

Example:

Username: awesomeexampleguy  http://www.fimfiction.net/user/Awesomeexampleguy

Short Description: I specialize in "example, example, example" and am willing to help out however I can!

Preferred Story Type(s): Adventure, Dark, Random

Preferred Story Length: >2000

Refused Story Type(s): Sad, Gore

Experience: Written: "Cool Example Story." Edited: "Awesome Example Story"

Description: I'm just an awesome example guy that loves to read and help people. I have a ton of ideas and have even written a story myself! I may not be the best at proofreading, but I will help with whatever I'm asked to!

Additional Notes: Helped edit Great Example Story. Prefers to use GDocs. I'm also an amateur artist!

Before submitting, please refer HERE for any questions on what should be included in the application.

3. Submit the filled out message to any one of the admins or contributors who can be found here.

Your application will be reviewed for admittance. Once accepted, the information in the application will be posted under the Editors List.

When you sign up to be an editor, you get your own document to display your information. This document is YOURS and you can personalize it however you please, whenever you please as long as the original information is included in the document. However, in order to make it possible for you to change the document by yourself, you must include your Google account with your application. If you do not have a Google account, you can always message an admin so they can change your document for you.

REMEMBER: If you decide to change your Preferred Story Types or your Short Description, you NEED to inform an admin so the information can be updated in the Editor List.

If you are confused, wondering about something, or would like help with your application, PLEASE ask one of the admins. We are here to help you and we cannot do that if you don't speak up.

Who are you? Why are you here? Let us know!

We're an active community here. Your participation is what keeps this group going!




Rules

1. Any kind of abuse or harassment towards a user or the group will not be tolerated and will result in a ban.

2. Stealing, vandalizing, or deleting someone's story is unacceptable at all levels and will not be tolerated.

3. No creating threads without specific permission from the admins.

4. Please report any violation of the rules to one of the admins so the problem can be taken care of.

5. Be formal and treat others how you would like to be treated yourself.

#355664 · 16w, 6d ago · · ·

Accidentally added a story, sorry about that I was curious about what something did.  

#354259 · 18w, 3d ago · · ·

>>354258 In a calm and mature manner, of course. I should have asked for one ages ago. Granted that there are things that I should have done in the past, well... better late than never.

#354258 · 18w, 3d ago · · ·

>>352313

Have we helped so far?

#352313 · 20w, 3d ago · · ·

Finally! A group that can help me. I can only go so long without one!

#343673 · 29w, 2d ago · · ·

Somebody said that my story has some or a few errors here and there, and even though I always check and edit my story as best as I can before publishing it I just seem to miss them or just cant find them, some editing help would be very welcome indeed :twilightsmile:

#343259 · 29w, 4d ago · · ·

>>343226  Just send a message to any of the editors and ask if they are willing to help out! Don't forget to include exactly what kind of help you are seeking.

If you run into trouble while trying to contact someone, let me know and I'll help you get set up with someone!:pinkiehappy:

Does this answer your question?

Edit: Sorry if you're seeing this late. I didn't realize the reply tag wasn't there.

>>342089

I'm thinking of asking for some feedback from an editor from this group. Do I need to send in any application to anyone or just send them a PM asking, "Hey, wanna help with my story?" or something like that?

#342089 · 30w, 5d ago · · ·

>>342049 That isn't really how this group works.

If you're looking for feedback, you can go to the Editor List and choose someone there and send a request to them asking if they'll do it for you.

Don't be afraid to ask anyone for help. I'm sure someone will be happy to give you some feedback! :raritywink:

Does this clear anything up?

#342049 · 30w, 5d ago · · ·

elo everypony, just to get a general idea, would anyone like to check out one of my stories and give me feedback?

I refer you to this thread. :pinkiehappy:

:rainbowhuh: its really a thread.

#341043 · 31w, 6d ago · · ·

>>340788 Well if you are certain that you can't edit for him, then refering him to another editor would probably be the best decision. Be honest with him though. You could probably just look through the editor list an find someone that fits the description.

Another suggestion would be that you could ask the author to get another editor to work with you on the story. There's nothing wrong with having more than one guy work on a story, at one point I had three working on my own.

I'm glad to see that you're concerned about your work. Let me know if that helps.

ps: I can't take the work myself, I'm pretty busy too...

#340788 · 32w, 1d ago · · ·

So, I volunteered to help someone with their story, but I'm getting afraid that I'm going to be unable to deliver the quality of proofreading I like to give in a timely manner.

So his name is JakeTheBrony, and his story is some Maple Story crossover with MLP. I'm not very skilled with HiE story, and I was seeing if there would be anyone here that would be able to offer better help than I can give.

I just have a lot more on my plate at the moment than I originally thought.

#339907 · 33w, 1d ago · · ·

>>339900 Neat! Glad I could help!

#339900 · 33w, 1d ago · · ·

>>339138

Thank you for the clarification. I've added my stories to it as a writer, and I hope it does generate some publicity. I actually think my proofreader is a member of this group.

#339524 · 33w, 4d ago · · ·

>>339384 Well, This Document shows the list of editors we have available right now. Just select which story genre your story fits into to see which editors  are willing to edit for that genre. You get to select who you want to look over your story.

If you need anymore help just ask! :twilightsmile:

#339384 · 33w, 5d ago · · ·

How do I add my story to this group to be looked at and edited?

#339138 · 34w, 37m ago · · ·

>>338921 It's supposed to. Honestly, my story wasn't technically edited by an editor here but it was someone in this group. If you'd like to put any other stories in there though, go right ahead. I don't really have a way to check anyway. It could give the group some publicity. :yay:

#338921 · 34w, 1d ago · · ·

Alright. Count me in. I'll get an application filled out and submitted within the next few days.

For the story submission folders, just to clarify this. Its for the authors to put stories in of ones that the editors have helped with, correct?

#337409 · 35w, 4d ago · · ·

>>337289 Yeah, what Mag said!

If you need any help, feel free to send me a message and I'll be sure to sort things out!:pinkiehappy:
