Last Month's Nominees (in chronological order)

Reviewer: Sarah Elizabeth
Submission: BENEATH THE CANYONS Chapter 1 by Kyra Halland
Submitted by: Kyra Halland
Nominator's Comments: This review is both very detailed and does a great job of looking at the larger-scale issues in the chapter. The reviewer zeroed in on the issues I requested help with and suggested ways to improve the chapter that will make it much stronger but without changing the essence of the story and the characters. She gives her experience as a reader with the chapter, but also some excellent writing-related insights. An extremely helpful review, and I appreciate it very much!

Reviewer: Allan Dyen-Shapiro
Submission: After Action by William Delman
Submitted by: William Delman
Nominator's Comments: Allan's critiques are almost always very helpful, and this one was no exception. His thoughts on this story actually echoed many of my own, which is always nice, but he also made a series of highly useful suggestions that went into my future drafts. I'm deeply appreciative anytime someone makes the effort to offer specific ideas about a sentence and/or plot structure change that also honors the larger themes of the piece. Allan certainly did that here.

Reviewer: Bobby Harrell
Submission: Carbon Tracks -- was Uncle Alberto (Reivsed) by Elizabeth Porco
Submitted by: Elizabeth Porco
Nominator's Comments: Bobby really helped me understand the strengths and weaknesses of my story.
