Earlier this year I spent some time with You Write On, the Arts Council site for peer-reviewing. It is interesting and potentially useful, though I found the reviewing time-consuming and sometimes tedious, with submissions of 6,000 – 10,000 words to get through for every review received, many of which seemed to be sci-fi or fantasy, not really my cup of tea.
This week Julia McCutchen has alerted me to the Front List which is run on similar lines. I have signed up, hoping the £10 fee to read reviews will weed out some of the less experienced writers and that submissions of 3000 may be easier to handle. Now I just have to decide whether to submit Landscape or the WIP. The site remains opaque until you submit a piece of work, so I shall have to make up my mind!
