I’m looking for a critique partner for my YA contemporary who also reads and writes in the genre. My 78,000 word manuscript is in its second draft. It is about a girl who is coping with anxiety and PTSD in the wake of her traumatic junior year of high school. She relives the entire course of her relationship with her toxic ex-boyfriend to try to make peace with the incidents and move forward with her life.
I do not have direct manuscript critiquing experience, but I have read widely in the genre (I finished over 120 books this year) and run a review blog called Reading, Writing, and Me. I also have editorial experience for short stories.
If you are interested, I would love to chat to see if we’d be a good match!
