Beta experience: Thus far all my beta experience has been for other fandoms, but I would really love to have to opportunity to beta for TWD and caryl :)
Story types/topics I will not beta: Bethyl... but I really don't expect to see that here... 
Additional Comments: I've been the editor of my school newspaper for three years, so I know what good writing looks like, and I know how to make suggestions respectfully. Additionally, I'm extremely enthusiastic about this fandom and its authors, and would love to help in any way possible. :)

Beta experience: I have never been a beta for fanfiction writing online.
I was in advanced english courses throughout high school and completed my required college english courses prior to attending college. I edited and reviewed many of my peers' writing during that time. My teachers often asked me to review their students' writing, but I was never an official TA.
Story types/topics I will not beta: RPF for sure. If I'm uncertain about anything else I'll let you know. I probably won't be all that much help with specific details of intimate scenes, but if a story still contains them, I have absolutely no problem with it. If the story is simply smut, I'd find someone else to help you.
Additional Comments: I just really love reading, editing writing, and helping people with their work! I know the struggle of staring at your writing for so long that you can't tell if it's good or not! I adore Caryl and want readers to have the best experiences as possible with this fandom and site. That being said, I can be harsh when editing, but not in a mean way. I give very honest feedback and will sometimes pick apart the smallest of things.
So if you'd like some help, feel free to ask :)

Beta experience: I have had beta experience before over on FF.net. I co-wrote a lot of stories with one of my friends, captainty, on there. As such I did all the things that a beta should do. I had a lot of input into the plot of the stories. I also reviewed all the chapters for her when she was done which included fixing grammar, spelling, and punctuation. I've also beta'd a lot of my personal friend's original stories. That included doing the same thing. And of course I am American, so I'm well versed in our language.
Story types/topics I will not beta: I'm not really good with sensitive issues like attempted suicide. I don't know what the proper response to those types of issues should be and as such I would not trust myself to be able to help with the incorporation of them into a story. I really don't like stories dealing with rape either unless it's absolutely vital to the plot and I think that is a very hard thing to get right.

Beta experience: All editing experience comes from both writing fanfiction and short stories. Various stories within fandoms such as The Walking Dead and others have been completed over the last 3 years, and I have usually been asked to be "a second pair of eyes" for various stories rather than asked to be an editor itself. This being said, I am happy to provide constructive criticisms, grammar and plot advice, as well as help with punctuation and sentence structure if interested.

Beta experience: I currently beta for two of my friends, both here and on AO3. I have also betaed numerous one shots and multi chapters.
Story types/topics I will not beta: I'm pretty laid back. If a subject arose I was uncomfortable reading we would discuss it. 
Additional Comments: I add notes. Sometimes lots of them lol. I'm very honest, so if you're looking for someone to tell you your story's great and doesn't need any work then I'm probably not the beta for you. I really want to help people get the most out of their stories, so if you don't mind some constructive criticism send me a PM.

Beta experience: I have a brand new degree in English and I can definitely help with grammar/sentence structure, etc. I've edited my friend's papers and projects for years. I enjoy editing other people's work and I would love to read your stories.
Story types/topics I will not beta: Not into AU, sorry.
