This board was created to give all P/T writers--both from the Internet and AOL--the opportunity to post in-progress stories for the purposes of beta-reading, editing, and general feedback, as well as a place to publish poetry. The board was created specifically as a forum in which authors could solicit the services of volunteer editors (aka "beta readers") to help improve the quality of your work, and for readers, authors, and editors to volunteer to beta read an author's works in progress and give constructive feedback. However, finished stories should be sent to the archive, not posted to the board. Requests for beta readers can be made on either this board or The P/T Collective Archive Message Board.
Anyone and everyone are invited to participate. However, if groups of authors wish to write under one nickname as the Collective does, please check out the Round Robin Board.
New parts are to be posted as separate messages so that they stay up for as long as possible, and then feedback and notes and discussion would go in the replies. Parts should be labelled thusly "Story Title, Part, Rating".
The board will use the MPAA ratings, which are:
G - General Audiences
PG - Parental Guidance suggested
PG-13 - No child under the age of 13 should be reading this without parental consent.
R - No child under the age of 16 should be reading this without parental consent due to the graphic nature of the fiction.
NC-17 - No child under the age of 18 should be reading this without parental consent due to the graphic nature of the fiction. This counts for both violence and sexual situations, and is roughly equivalent to the television rating of TV-MA for those of you with pay cable...
No X-rated fiction is accepted. If porn is posted, it will immediately be deleted, the author's parentage will be called into question, and curses heaped on both his or her ancestors and descendants.
Like the archive, the stories should either centre around the characters of Tom Paris, or B'Elanna Torres, or both. Like the archive, any story is acceptable, not just romance.
