Round Four Beta Sign-up

Hello all! Better late than never, right? The need for betas hasn't explicitly popped up this year, but I think it still might be useful as the deadlines loom this month. Remember that you MUST HAVE YOUR STORY BETAED so those who don't already have someone lined up should refer to this list.

There are plenty of people in the fest who either don't have regular betas, don't have betas who do H/D and/or who are writing specific fic elements that they'll need a "specialist" for. That's where you come in. If you have stellar usage and grammar skills or specialist knowledge (British culture, foreign languages/cultures, genres, etc.) and are willing to proofread a story or two, please comment with your information. I will point participants who need a beta reader towards this post - so please include valid contact information!

Please pimp this to friends, including those not in the fest. We need anyone who would enjoy helping out!

Please note, this list is for those writing stories for hd_holidays only. It is not a general H/D beta resource list.
