The entries are up, The Agent is here (or will be shortly), and the critiques are flowing in! Entrants, please remember to critique at least 3 other entries; everyone else, critique as many as you want. If you want to think like The Agent, you might consider the question, "How much of the entry did you read, and if you didn't read it all, why did you stop?" as you give your feedback, but I'm sure the entrants would love to hear anything you have to say (so long as it's constructive, of course).
I'll reveal The Agent's identity and announce his or her winners and prizes sometime next week. (Since Christmas sandwiched itself right in the middle of this month's round, I thought The Agent deserved a couple of grace days.) Until then, critique away!
P.S. Entrants, if you notice any problems with your entries, feel free to leave a comment or shoot me an e-mail so I can fix them.
