Looking for Editors

Do you want to connect with an editor, or find a story to edit? This is the group for you! An editor is someone who volunteers to fix errors in your writing, be they grammatical or otherwise. A good editor will not only fix your errors, but also point out your mistakes in an effort to help you improve.


Please read the following rules before you begin:


If you are looking for an editor:

Start by making a thread in the forum. Follow the guide here before you do anything. Please do not use the comments on the main page to request an editor.

When you’ve found help, please remember to delete your thread. Posts that are two months old will be deleted on a (mostly) regular basis, but you can help the admins out by deleting your thread when it's no longer needed.


If you are looking to edit a story:

To edit a story, watch the forum to find new requests for editors. When you find an author or story you want to edit for, write a comment in the thread or send them a PM. Exchange contact information, availability, and anything else you think is necessary. The best editors are familiar with the quirks of their author’s writing style, so get to know your author! If they have accepted your help, be sure to write a comment in the thread indicating that they are being helped.

Say, I just joined Ideas and Development to get help, but in case that doesnot work, can I get help from this group to better develop my OC for my story?

I don't have a problem with it as long as you don't get too spammy, just, it doesn't seem like this site is a fit for what you're looking for and I have had a few reports calling your comments suspicious. Just letting you know where the community at large seems to stand on this issue, based on my experience.

Eldorado,
If I broke some rule of your site, written or unwritten, I apologize.
I just think literature and storytelling are limitless, as well as the fancies of readers, so I saw nothing wrong or suspicious in offering the chance to those among the members of fimfiction whom might be interested to read my stuff.
I might be wrong, though.

You do realize that this is an MLP-centric site, and most of our users are here primarily because they want to contribute to the MLP community? This probably isn't the right site to look for help editing something that's totally unrelated to MLP.

Besides, posting comments in a bunch of different editing groups on a niche fandom site in an effort to recruit help for an original screenplay really seems suspicious to a lot of people. Those who actually would be willing and able to help you here are probably going to see this as some kind of scam.

I'm not accusing you of being a scam, I'm simply saying that you're going about this in a highly suspect manner. You might want to try your luck on a different site.

Hi,
I have a feature length screenplay, a dark drama, and I'm looking for someone who would help me proofread it.
If you are interested can contact me at: amc252@mail.com

Thanks.

I got a story and I want someone to help me edit it, but how to send the story to the editor

Hi there, I am an editor. Please let me know if you'd like me to edit your content. I have a BA Degree and have 2 years experience creating and editing content and copy.

No biggie, and it's not just you. A lot of people don't bother to read the rules and it's a bit annoying.

Oops, sorry. I was in such a rush is all. I just deleted my comment.

Please do not use the comments on the main page to request an editor.

I mean, it had to be said. Because people can't read the rules, apparently.

hello is this club running? I need an editor for my story and I was wondering if anyone was willing to do.
my grammar isn't great, but I do have a basic extension that helps me although it's not great

Due to the forum apparently being broken, I shall post here. I am looking for a proof-reader or pre-reader or editor for what *hopefully* should be a longer multi-verse fic. Original starring the Mane 6. Currently posted at 2k words for the introduction, my goal is 5-10k word chapters. Thanks!
