Meet beta readers and get feedback on your story

Our writing community has thousands of beta readers ready to meet you.

Beta readers are people who read your story-in-progress, and give you feedback on how to improve it. They’re the critical step between completing your draft, and getting your draft published — feedback from beta readers is what takes your manuscript from draft to perfect.

Scribophile is a writing community designed to connect you with beta readers. For over fifteen years, our entire focus has been to make sure you get feedback on how to improve your story from helpful beta readers from all over the world.

Finding beta readers doesn’t have to be a chore

The hardest part of getting feedback is finding beta readers. Your friends and family might not be professional writers, or they might not be as honest as you’d like. Where else do you find beta readers?

Scribophile is a writing community designed to make it easy to meet beta readers. Our point system ensures that every person who posts writing for feedback is guaranteed to get it, so you can be sure that your writing will be reviewed.

Scribophile should be your go-to writing community. This is where I learned the craft of telling a story, critiquing with kindness, and building a network of fellow writers. Having workshopped dozens of short pieces and a novel here, I’d recommend Scribophile to anyone serious about putting words on a page and polishing them until they shine.

Since joining Scribophile, I have grown as a writer, honed my craft, finished my work through the support and encouragement of fellow Scribbers, and been accepted by an agent and publisher. My book will go live on Amazon soon, and I could never have done it without this wonderful place!

I wouldn’t have been brave enough to submit to publishers without the support and encouragement of this amazing community. I learned so much here and would definitely suggest that anyone interested in joining does so without delay!
