    Hi from Italy and the Galaxy!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Luca Rossi, Feb 12, 2013.

    Hello,
    my name is Luca Rossi and I'm a science fiction, fantasy and erotic author who has recently published "Energie della Galassia", an italian language ebook. I've just started translating it and I'm very curious to know if you'll like it.
    Tomorrow, I'm going to post my first tale here.
    Thank you very much for your attention!

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Luca Rossi!

    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 requirements. 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. The requirements of the Writing Workshop don't apply to the contests, so new members are allowed (nay, encouraged!) to get stuck in and enter!

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, 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.

    bongiorno e benvenuto, luca!

    btw, you shouldn't post an entire story that you hope to have published some day... no publisher is going to pay you for something that can be read for free...

    the site isn't meant for just displaying completed works, but for writers to get feedback/help/advice on works in progress...

    abbracci e bacci, maia

    I'm on Wattpad and Smashwords

    Hi,
    I'm very surprised to see that in Italy I'm on the top positions of the science fiction authors on Amazon http://po.st/m1YtVH . So far I'm an indie author. I'd like to publish a tale so that you can help me to evaluate how good is my translator's english ;)

    Grazie di tutto,
    Luca

    once you have fulfilled the site requirements you'll be able to post something for review... but be sure it's not a complete story that you hope to have published some day... it's best to post only brief excerpts...
