Insights & Inspiration
The Insights & Inspiration forum is a unique part of the applied writing section of WritingForums.org, serving as as a unique, dedicated section for knowledgeable and successful community members to share their insights and inspiration with the rest of the community. Such contributions can come in many forms of "resource threads," including writing tips, advice, motivational posts, inspirational stories, specific insights, AMA (ask-me-anything) interviews, and more.
The Insights & Inspiration forum is meant to act as a repository for thread-based resources. Writing-related articles and specific resources should be posted in their respective writing-related articles and writing resources sections. In short, Insights & Inspiration is meant for "sticky-quality" threads related to writing, publishing, or other industry-related or relevant topics.

Are There Restrictions or Guidelines on Content and Quality?
Presently, content restrictions and quality guidelines have not been established. They will be created if they are needed. We ask that all posts be quality (think "sticky-quality threads); that is, they are resourceful or insightful threads that are valuable to the reader - threads worthy of sharing and referring others to read.
