    Welcome to Writing Forums, Human Nature!

    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 requirments. 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.

    Why not check the humor section of the Writing Workshop under Short Stories?

    I wouldn't say there are a large number of active humorists at any given time. Members do come and go, and humor is a particularly difficult writing skill to do well.

    But I'm sure there are a few active members who aspire to fire up your funny.

    Hi Banzai (and also Cogito)

    Sorry I should have familiarised my self with the rules before jumping in to the forum :-D
    Thanks for the summary, I'll be back in 13 unlucky days (hopefully I've racked up enough posts/critique by then)..

    The rules seen pretty straight forward and logical, I'm currently in a writer's circle on 9 where I do a similar thing on a monthly basis so no problem there.

    You guys (and probably girls to ..and statistically 1 hermathrodite) seem pretty well organised here, and friendly too.

    Thanks for having me people, see you in a fortnight give or take 14 hours ;)
