    Another standard introduction!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Writing guy, Apr 11, 2008.

    Hi Everyone.

    I'm a kinda writer from London, kinda as in I work in a coffee shop and write down story ideas on my lunch break!

    Looking for some tips on how to get short fiction and poetry published, but more importantly, to meet some great people from all over the world.

    Please, add me as a friend and lets get creative! :D

    Hello Writing Guy, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    As Oasis Writer noted, we're all kinda writers here, among all kinds of writers. We also try to keep the environment kind to writers.

    If you haven't explored the site yet, you should probably do so soon. Newcomers often gravitate to the Lounge, the Word Games, or the Review Room, but there is much more to be discovered if you poke in the corners. Remember to check out our FAQ as well!

    As for the Review Room, new joiners often wonder why we do things a bit differently on this site than on other writing sites. We emphasize reviewing as a critical writing skill. Training your eye by reviewing other people's work helps you improve your own writing even before you present it for others to see. Therefore, we ask members to review other people's writing before posting work of their own. The Review Room forums on this site, therefore, are true workshops, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work (and on that note, please only post each item for review in one Review Room forum). See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    Hello WG and welcome to the site. I am Heather and can usually be found on here at least once a day so if you would ever like anything reviewing, need any help or just want to "get creative" then send a message my way and I'll be happy to help. I hope to see you around more often. :)

    Hello and welcome to the forum.
    I hope you find that your time here is enjoyable and helps you with your writing endeavours.
    If you have any work you would like reviewed, simply send a PM to one of us reviewers. Just make sure you review work by others first :)
    There are poetry and short story contests running weekly, well almost weekly I should say.
    Otherwise I am sure you have managed to find your way around the forum by now. So enjoy yourself and I will see you around the boards.

    Tor
