About the Workshop
Belinda Pollard regards beta readers – volunteers who evaluate unpublished manuscripts – as the superheroes of self-publishing. She is a sought-after beta reader among her fellow novelists thanks to her years of experience as a developmental book editor, but has nevertheless made and learned from mistakes in the process. Find out where to find the best readers for your needs, how to brief them, how to make the most of the feedback they deliver and how to give amazing feedback in return.
