Genre: Speculative Fiction (Near Future)
Word Count: 5,000
Blurb: In the year 2025, a wannabe child pop star returns to her adopted home of Guatemala for one day but gets caught up in a coup d'etat and learns why she really needs to become a star. It is funny, it is horror, it is geopolitical, it is musical.
Audience: 12-100 year olds.
Expectations: Just give comments and recommendations: what is good, what needs to be improved, how to improve it. We can exchange story/comments by e-mail. Start by commenting here that you want to read it and I will PM you.

Format: We can exchange story/comments by e-mail. I can paste the story in the e-mail or send it by Word attachment as you choose.
Other: I am happy to Beta read your story of approximately equivalent length and comment. As you can see by the blurb, it is really cross-genre.
