In a blatant attempt to amuse myself, I will be hosting a number of Snark-esque critiques on my blog.

http://vonklick.blogspot.com/2009/02/open-wide-slush-gate-volume-one.html

Submissions should be fired to: perfection.von.klick [atsymbol] gmail [dot] com.

My spin is pretty much the opposite of Evil Editor's. I don't snark, I crit in a gentle, crooning voice that leaves authors with their flesh and hair intact.

So what the hell qualifies me to do this?

I've made a handful of fiction sales - which means I have some idea of what sells stories. I'm also a writing tutor at my college, and I actively study writing as an art.

So-- nothing! It's a peer crit in a public place. If you've seen the way I do this in SYW, you'll know that I'm competent. Or you'll hate my style and won't send me anything.

I hope to see some of your stories!

Hey Bartholomew. Sounds like a fun idea, but you may want to mention how many words you'll crit at a time, and if you accept queries or stuff. Just so people know what's kosher :)
