Updates and Critique Announcement

Howdy! Carver here, with some updates about the Team Tweak goings on and an announcement:


  • Our very own Marisa will have a piece published in CommuterLit early next week! Keep an eye out for her, and go enjoy the other pieces CommuterLit has to offer.
  • The team’s YA novels are going very well. We’re all reaching the end. Next step: querying! Remember that Gina posted a fantastic set of pointers for those of us taking that step. Leona jump-started the process, and it may have been … ill-advised. Read more here about an agent-querying pit fall here.
  • In early 2014, Leona will have a novella out through Less Than Three Press. About mermaids, magic, and love. More information here.


Is there a page giving you trouble? A few paragraphs or a bit of dialogue? A query letter, summary, or synopsis? Maybe there’s some plot outlining that you want to talk out with someone.

Go no further, my friend. Team Tweak welcomes you to submit a section of 250 words (give or take a few) for critiquing. Every week, we’ll post one of these critiques, so you’ll need to be comfortable with a public discussion on your piece. After posting, we’d be happy to talk about our comments and suggestions.

If this sounds good to you, then please submit your piece to teamtweakto (at) gmail (dot) com. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
