We'll Rate Your Story for Free - Submissions Open October 1, 2011

Wonder if you've got what it takes to be a published writer?  Is that story sitting on your hard drive any good?  Was Grandma just saying your story was adorable because you are, my dear?

Find out!

Rate Your Story is a new website, with submissions opening on October 1, 2011.  You can submit stories–up to 2,000 words–in just about any genre or category, and receive a "score" from a published writer or author.

Who can get their story rated for free?
Anyone who has written a story that meets the Rate Your Story guidelines and is able to use email.

What does a story rating mean?
It's just a number, so don't take it too seriously–but it's a score based upon a published writer's reading of your manuscript.

When can writers get their story rated for free?
Beginning October 1, 2011.

How can writers get their story rated for free?
By following the submission guidelines on the Rate Your Story Submissions webpage.

Where can writers get their story rated for free?
Right here, at Rate Your Story -

Why should writers get their story rated for free?
Because to pay for a simple score doesn't make a lot of sense.  But getting a free rating that might encourage you–or let you know it's time to revise–may save you a lot of time, worry, or rejection in the long run.

What else does Rate Your Story offer?
Mostly, we offer the free scoring service.  However, on several of our pages and blog posts, great tips on writing and links to writer's resources such as how to get a professional critique or join a critique group are offered for you.

Enough letters.  Let's see some numbers.  Contact us to Rate Your Story (starting Oct. 1)!
