    Hey Folks

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by andycerrone, Jan 15, 2008.

    Hey-

    I've been looking for a way to improve my writing before I enter grad school, which is still somewhat a hit or miss thing, seeing as I will be poor whether or not I go for it. :rolleyes: Anyways, I'm 20, a junior in college, studying Literature, Secondary Education, and Writing. Living in Boston, but from Providence. Uhh... yeah, I don't know what else to really say. What's up?

    Hello Andy, Welcome to the Writing Forums.

    After today, you are probably looking forward to moving to a warmer climate for a while!

    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. Remember to check out our FAQ as well!

    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 forums on this site, therefore, are true workshops, not just a bulletin board for displaying your work (and on that note, please only post each item for review in one Review Room forum). See this post, Why Write Reviews Before Posting My Work? for more information.

    Enjoy your stay here, and have fun!
