Will you take a second look at a manuscript you've already critiqued?

What are your submission guidelines?
What if you steal my idea?
Let's be honest, this is the ugly question everyone has in the back of their mind when they submit their work. Ideas are precious and all writers/illustrators work hard to cultivate and grow them. Prior to submitting work for critique, please read the Critter Lit Terms & Privacy page. By submitting your work, you acknowledge Critter Lit's terms and conditions. All submissions are private and therefore are not shared with third parties unless explicit consent is given by the author or illustrator. My goal with Critter Lit is to help your creative process, not mine.
