At Red Haircrow Review, I respect the courage it takes to allow someone to read or view your work because it can reflect your ideals, dreams and inner self. Aspects that might not ordinarily be presented to the world. In many ways I understand the creative process because I am a writer and artist myself, but like anyone else I have my likes and dislikes.
I would never promise an entirely positive review, but I remain objective and will always be fair. Also, I will never be derogatory or use wording that disrespects the author and the enormous time and effort they may have put into their work. As of 2016, this is the sixth year of our existence, and continues and will always be without charge. We strive to provide comprehensive, objective and helpful reviews both for authors and readers/viewers.
Please read guidelines carefully, and take the time to read the About page as it provide professional and personal background information. This can help in making an informed decision on whether this is an appropriate venue for your genre or project. For those seeking professional collaboration, editing/formatting services or publishing opportunities, etc., please visit our business site Flying With Red Haircrow Productions.
