Congratulations to Ella Ford! She'll be working with Barbara to polish her angst story. Next month Working Stiffs will publish her original draft, Barbara's critique notes, and Ella's final draft. We wish them luck, and thank them for their generosity and courage in giving us a peek behind the scenes of great beta reading, and how it can make our work more compelling.

Stay tuned in the New Year for our next contest, "Interview Your Favorite Author for Working Stiffs!"
