    Average Introduction.

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Anielle, Jan 7, 2013.

    Hi, I'm Anielle (as if you couldn't tell from my screen name.) This is the name I go by in real life as well as for my professional writing.
    I'm a "recent" graduate I graduated last May so I assume that's not too recent anymore. My degree is in History and my minor was creative writing; I focused in poetry more than fictional writing (my college only offered the two areas of study.) I hope to go back to college for a masters in creative writing, however I was supposed to be getting help from my poetry professor and she has been ignoring my messages to follow her new passion of photography. I work right now as a substitute teacher to support my creative habits of writing, jewelry making, and now dollhouses. I'm also a freelance editor working on a grad student's thesis paper concerning Germany's Airborne troops in WWII as well as my boyfriend's post-apocalyptic novel (2 chapters and the epilogue to finish before he releases it.)

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Anielle!

    I hope you find what you're looking for here, whatever your interests in writing.

    This forum aims to provide the best workshopping resources on the internet, and to that end we have a few rules which you should familiarise yourself with before you get stuck in. The main section of the site is the Writing Workshop, where members can post their writing in order to receive critique of their work.

    However, before we allow members to post their work, they must have met some basic requirements. Firstly, you must have been a member for fourteen days, and have made twenty posts on the forum overall (please note, posts in Word Games do not count towards this). This is so that members, when they post their work, have familiarised themselves with the forums and contributed to them (as well as hopefully learned something for themselves). Secondly, members must provide two constructive reviews of other people's work for each piece of their own that they wish to post. This is because we believe that the focus of workshopping should be equally upon giving reviews as receiving them, as they allow a writer to practice and improve their editing skills, which they can then apply to their own writing.

    Beyond the Writing Workshop, you will find that we have extensive forums for discussion of aspects of writing, as well as a community area for general discussion. We also run periodic short story and poetry contests, which are good for challenging yourself and expanding your skills.

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, Cogito, Lemex and Dante Dases) should be your first port of call. Any technical problems with the site itself should be directed to Daniel, the site administrator and owner. I would recommend you have a look over the rules so that you know what to expect, and what is expected. But aside from that, I hope you enjoy your time here.

    Hi there Anielle! I'm J.A.K., and I'm new to the forums like you. I am actually a college freshman majoring in creative writing, so I know how difficult professors can be at times. Welcome to the forums, and I can't wait to read works from both you and your boyfriend (Post-apocalyptic novels always have interested me!).

    I'm sorry for such a long absence I got distracted with looking for work and focused so much on the search that I stopped writing all together. I've recently gotten back into the habit of writing everyday even if its just some short blog posts, it is till after all practice and exercising the mind.

    Welcome back! It's pretty much the same place, but there's a new moderator team: @Wreybies, @KaTrian, @T.Trian, and myself. Banzai's welcome post above contains obsolete information. :)
