    Hello forum members

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Joshuan12, Jun 29, 2012.

    Hello to all forum members. My name's Joshua; I prefer that, so I'd respectfully ask to call me that, and not Josh.

    I write a variety of things consisting of poetry, short stories, possibly a novel, and song lyrics. My main focus is song lyrics, but I don't exactly think it suits the forum well, considering many of them can be quite graphic. Usually in the style of rap or hip-hop, I rarely do much else with the lyrics, but I'm hoping to possibly record them. I'm still young and have much to learn, so I'm hoping those of you here could help me hone my skill. I'm planning on presenting one of my some-what short stories on the forum soon. It's still quite new and on it's very first draft, so I don't expect much positive feedback. I'm probably going to re-do much of the second half, because I feel I sort of rushed it, considering it was originally for a school assignment. Anyways, I'm ranting. I'm glad to be here, and I hope to provide useful feedback, as well as receive some!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Joshua!

    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.
