    Basically what the title says. I'm writing an epic fantasy novel, I've been working on it for about three months now (nawww! it's a cute little babything!) so it's still very rough and my writing methods is somewhat haphazard - I write chapter 3, then chapter 8, then back to chapter 2, etc, as the inspiration strikes. So far, I have a lovely cast of characters, my basic plot, the word (I actually started worldbuilding quite young, due to living in a tiny little village as a preteen), and the backstories and motivations of several organisations.

    If anyone is interested in doing some critique exchanges, shoot me a PM or reply here, I'm not fussed either way.

    Hey man, I'd totally be interested in something like that. I'm quite a critical reader so I think I'd be able to give some decent critique and help polish your writing if anything. Plus my writing is far from perfect so I wouldn't mind a bit of back and forth :)

    Awesome, thanks so much! That sounds perfect. I prefer more critical over less, and I can moderate my critical-ness from gentle to blistering, depending on what you prefer, so it should work well. I just got back from holiday, but I'll PM you in the morning. :)

    I'm looking for someone to test read my story up to chapter 3 (including the prolouge I may or may not include).

    If you wanna swap a few chapters, I'd be happy to give thoughts on yours; whatever you want the critique to be about.

    If interested PM me.

    My story is knitty-gritty medieval fantasy. Nothing more needs to said really.

    I'd be up for it :) Am in about the same position as you, so I know how it is to have a baby-novel in the making ;)
    Am a critical reader but most of all a structure freak. So I might be able to look into the overall framework.

    Just PM if you're interested :)

    I don't mean to revive an old thread, but I just stumbled across this forum after getting a bad reception on reddit and I was basically looking for the same thing. I'm writing a fantasy story in a sci-fi universe and I'd love to be able to talk one-on-one or in a small group to get feedback on my story and help others with theirs. I have a fleshed-out world and backstory for everything, but I've only written the prologue and some bits and pieces of chapters so far. I'm struggling a bit with where to direct things for the middle of the story, so maybe working together would help me - and everyone else - out.

    I wouldn't mind giving some feedback.
