• How would you describe your activity on the Student Forum? (How often do you visit it? What types of activities do you participate in? How long have you had an account?) If you don't have an account on the Student Forum, just type "N/A."
  • Novel

    If your novel differs from the OYAN format of 12 chapters, think more along the lines of being two-thirds of the way through Act 1, with the remaining third being "Embracing Destiny." Of a 50,000-word novel, this would mean having about 7,500 completed, or about 15%.
  • File

  • Accepted file types: doc, docx.
    Please upload your first chapter in a .doc or .docx format. *This will be the required file type for all chapters submitted for critiquing.*
  • Critiquing experience

  • Describe your experience with both giving and receiving constructive criticism for writing. For example, have you been in a critique group before? Have you given or received critiques on the Student Forum? Have you shared your work with anyone?
    We'll help you learn how to do this! Expect to spend 1–2 hours a week on this assignment. Students frequently find that they enjoy it!
  • If you are under 18, your parent/guardian will be notified if you fall behind in submitting chapters or critiques.
