Free Editing Program
Note: As of April 14, 2017, the Free Editing Program will be closed until further notice. But never fear! In the meantime, read the explanation below, take the necessary steps toward eligibility for edits, and keep writing!
We’ll be back with a revamped, super-exciting system. If you submitted edits prior to April 14, you can expect to hear back from an editor on staff.
Writing is hard. Very hard. So hard, in fact, that countless books have been published to help writers improve their craft. Although there are some great books on writing, they can’t coach you through the specifics of your story. For that, nothing’s better than one-on-one help from a professional editor.
At TBL, we want to provide our writers with every resource they need to be successful, including a top-notch editing staff. Working one-on-one, our editors help emerging writers through multiple drafts. We coach them on craft and style with the goal of creating polished, high-quality work that can be published in print publication, F(r)iction Series, or our online journal, F(r)Online. And what do we charge for such an invaluable service?
We offer our edits absolutely free of charge. All you have to do is be an active member of our community (a feat proven by commenting on ten publications or forum threads). After that, you’re eligible for free edits on any work you submit to us. Our team will return your edits within 2-4 weeks. We also offer free priority edits (working with one of our Senior Editors) for all contest finalists and authors who reach the Rank of Author (see Ranking System below).
It’s as simple as that. Bring your thoughts and personality to our community. In return, our editors will provide you with personal writing help.
