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.

Discord Chat Now Open

As of June 25th we have a new public chat Here, on discord. No Downloads, Or Signup Necessary.

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!

Remember to post editor requests as a Thread! NOT in the group comment box.

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): *


Description: *

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

Preferred Story Length: >2000

Refused Story Type(s): Sad, Gore

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!


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

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

>>406884 well I have tried that but he hasn't responded in the past 5 days that and he hasn't been on fimfiction in the past month or so but I'm gonna wait for a response for a few more days

You as well. Should your editor go MIA for a while, just drop them a friendly reminder and ask how things are going. If they are unavailable or busy at the moment, then a second editor to step in and help out until the first is done be busy, or backs out, is usually okay.

>>406827 thanks for responding, I was asking because my current editor has been  mia for a while and I was contemplating if I should get a second editor and I will take this into consideration as well, thank you and have a good evening :pinkiesmile:

Hi, and Welcome to the Group!

That's a little debatable. On one hand, it is really good to have multiple eyes going over things, just so you have different view points giving input and stuff. But at the same time, if everyone is not on the same page, it could deteriorate into a mess with arguments, and people saying no to what others think. I also think it depends on the level of skill of some editors. Some are fantastic and can pretty much solo not just other people's work, but their own as well. Other editors are kinda new, or really inexperienced so having another editor with them can help them learn as well.

I operated with two editors for a while. One was a main editor and helped me develop the story and figure things out when I got stuck, and the other was more of a pre-reader, who check for grammar issues. It worked pretty well.

:pinkiesmile: Hello, I'm new and I wanted to ask, which is better, haveing a single editor, or more than one?

#86 · 49w, 3d ago · · ·

Greetings I need someone to write my fic for me I got writers block really bad and I need help! I'll give you a link but I want the fic written including these instructions

I want it with ideas from the following(not a crossover)

~The Oriasian ball(the event in dragon age inquisition with the politics and intrigue)

It needs to be party related and have the CMC in there somewhere

#85 · 64w, 3d ago · · ·

>>402764 Generally we edit based on personal schedules, you could apply for an editor even if you don't have half a chapter done yet. Whether or not someone will come edit is entirely based upon the editor. Having said this, all editors reserve the right to refuse the right to edit something, so theres no guarantee that an editor will actually come.

I also don't know of too many editors in this group, most people just join to get help, which is kinda a flaw on our part. Working to amend this is a priority right now.

#84 · 64w, 6d ago · · ·

Man you guys and gals are utterly PROFESSIONAL in every way I swear you are all awesome question though do you do incomplete fics also not that I'm trying to be selfish or take up too much time just wondering

#77 · 94w, 1d ago · · ·

Hello there...i was just wondering if any of you guys might be interested of maybe even know someone who can continue and finish my story Tales of Fate: a new future for me and all of my readers.

The reason why i ask this is because i have managed to write myself against a wall, mostly because of the structure of the previous chapters, and i cant or have the time to try and fix that. :(

So if any on you might have an interest or solution to my problem please PM me.
