    Thanks guys for the welcome. Torana when I saw your name while having a lurk I just knew you were from Oz with a name like that - hehe. Thanks Chloe and Gannon, I shall go have a look at the competition link, but reading the work on here I'm a bit shy of posting anything of mine, you all make me look like a kindergarten kid!

    G'day Raffles, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    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.

    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 on this site, therefore, is a true workshop, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work. See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!

    G'day, Raffles, welcome. There is a poem for you and other Aussies under Review Room, Poetry. I have been to OZ many times. Great country.
