    Hello

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by The Magnan, Jan 17, 2012.

    I am Kieran otherwise known as 'The Magnan' (That's Mag - Nian) online, as for offline well here's just a few nicknames 'Zero, Eagle, Iodine...' anyways I'm an aspiring writer of science fiction and fantasy. At the minute I'm working on story I've been doing for more than year. Still haven't finished, but I'm getting close now. I have a few favourite authors, Anthony Horowitz, Stephen Erikson, and Peter Hamiliton who have all one way or another have influenced the way I write. I also have an unusual taste in music, in that as long as it ain't about partying or getting drunk or whatever else seems to be overused these days then I'm good. I'll be honest I'm not sure what to write for an introduction but from what I've seen this place could just help me improve my shoddy grammar skills (who always seem to fail me). Anyway that's it. I like Sunderland AFC and playing football other than that you will find my life is pretty uneventful.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Kieran!

    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 and Cogito) 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 Newbie to the forum
    I have been 'writing' as a hobby since the age of 11 and love it although I only have the staying power for short stories
    Is this genre wanted more than novels? I would like to submit my short stories as I can write one in an evening but whether they are any good I do not know
    Does the forum have a means of uploading stories for reviews by other members?

    thanks
    Dee
