Agent Sarah LaPolla at Curtis Brown, Ltd. wrote a great blog post on how to pick good beta readers aka critique partners for your work.

Our goal at Viva Scriva is to help you build a tight-knit, effective critique group that will be your foundation from first draft/first book to the profound missive you are scrawling on your deathbed in blood…

Oh, sorry, I got a little caught up there!

But… while you are building the aforementioned group of bloodwriters, finding a partner to exchange manuscripts with is a great way to begin.  See our post on that topic here.

Sarah LaPolla suggests we avoid:

The Casual Reader
Yes-Men/Women
Family/Friends
First Draft Readers
Your Clone
