Although X-EDIT is an LJ community, not an egroup, I know that many
of the folks on these mailing lists are also involved with Live
Journal -- hence this one-time notice, in order to reach folks who
might not otherwise hear:
This community grew out of a series of discussions in LJ entries
about how difficult it can be to locate a beta reader/editor,
particularly for folks new to fanfiction, or new to X-Men/Marvel
fandom. I've heard this same song before, and I understand it IS
So I set about creating a group that might help along the process for
folks in need of beta readers/editors ... or who are willing to be
betas/editors. X-EDIT isn't a silver bullet sure to solve everyone's
problem, simply a forum where editors and writers might be able to
find each other. (And I know some writers already have a comfortable
circle of editors/betas, and aren't looking further.)
Please read the Community Info page (link above) for more info.
There are also a series of Rules and Guidelines posts here, that we
ask you to read *in full* before posting ANYTHING to the community:
Intro and Basic Rules:
Guidelines for Editors / Betas:
Guidelines for Authors:
Troubleshooting (when things go wrong):
Yes, you do need to have a live journal (and join the community) in
order to post. But live journals are FREE. It just takes half an
hour (or so) to set one up. :-)
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me.
