NOTE: Our goal is to place each submission with an industry professional—an agent, editor, or art director. When making assignments, we take into consideration previous critiques, who is agented, and so on where possible. However, our ultimate goal is to place each submission with the critiquer who can give the most helpful input for taking the work to the next level. We cannot honor requests for specific critiquers or specific time slots.
