Ratings I'll beta: •PG-13  •R  •NC-17  •Adult Only
I can help beta read: •American English  •Grammar  •Plot Suggestions  •Punctuation 
Turnaround for an average length chapter: 1-3 days
Experience: I used to beta for a short time about six years ago.  I had to stop due to work commitments.
Story types/topics I will not beta or sensitivity read: I would prefer not to beta “all human” stories and stories based on the comic books.
Additional Comments: My full-time job requires me to review documents, presentations and speeches.  I think I have a good idea on how to make written materials that flow well, are grammatically correct and meet the author’s vision.

Turnaround for an average length chapter: 4-7 days
Experience: I have worked as part of the Beta-reading team helping Hulettwyo work on her story 'Serivce Unit'. 
I have also given some medical type background, info and feedback to a few different authors (including puddinhead)
Story types/topics I will not beta or sensitivity read: I will NOT work on vamp Buffy stories under any circumstances.  I really don't like Buffy with fangs and no heartbeat. 
I used to try and avoid all human stories,  but I am relaxing my views on that lately, so that  would be on a case by case basis.
Additional Comments: I have direct intensive knowledge (both professional and personal) of the medical field.  I work in a cancer hospital, so can relate and help with that (ie: Joyce's illness, cancer diagnosis & treatments).  I have also been on the patient's side of the bed, having had brain surgery, woke up on a respirator (life support) and seizures (now well controlled with medications) as well I am a survivor of breast cancer so I know how it feels to be a patient undergoing treatments.
I had stepped away from the fandom for awhile, but now I am back and willing to help again.

Additional Comments: English and grammar are a passion of mine, I have experience in editing and creative writing, and am currently studying linguistics.

Experience: I've been a beta on and off for about two years now. I've participated in a few big bangs for other fandoms as a beta, as well as beta read stories for friends. I joined the Buffy fandom a little over a year ago, so I'm still fairly new but I have been reading Spuffy fic the entire time and I'm excited to take the next leap into betaing here!
Story types/topics I will not beta or sensitivity read: I haven't seen AtS or read the comics, so if your story requires canon knowledge of either of those then I'm probably not the right beta for you. 
Additional Comments: Response times will vary but I can't imagine it taking me more than a week to get a chapter (or more, maybe up to 20/30k?) back to you. If you send it to me with advance notice on a Saturday morning then you'll probably have it back by Sunday night, but my brain tends to be a bit mushy after work on weekdays which is not conductive to beta reading. 
In the past I've used both google docs and Word, but I'm happy to try out other easily accessible mediums. 
If you're interested, send me a message so we can chat about your story and what you're looking for in a beta to see if we'll be a good fit :)

Experience: I have never beta’d before, but I read my first Spuffy fanfic at 13 (pg of course!) and I have never looked back. I’ve been reading for a long time, but I really want to be a part of the process now. I myself am not a great fiction writer so I’d love to be a part of the writing process anyway I can. I am an English teacher with a BA in English. I am especially good with grammar and tense continuity and am more than happy to be your copy writer ;) I can turn around a chapter in a couple days during summer and federal holidays but take a little longer during the school year. Weekends are my beta days September-June. 
Story types/topics I will not beta or sensitivity read: I will not beta any story that includes sexual assault, rape, or dubious consent between Buffy and Spike. I don’t believe that Buffy, even out of character, would accept any romantic advances from someone who assaulted her. 
Additional Comments: I will adapt to what you need. If you’re looking for grammar corrections, I got you. If you don’t care about the grammar and only need plot and continuity work then that’s good with me. The beta works for the writer imo and I will adapt to your needs. As an English teacher I hope to provide quality and constructive feedback with both kindness and criticism. At least that’s what my students tell me 🖤

Experience: I've never beta-ed before but would really like to give this a shot. I work as an advertising writer IRL and have been doing this for 16 years.
