    Hullo

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by PrincessBatman, Mar 10, 2013.

    Just signed up last night and wanted to say hi before I posted anywhere else. I'm more of a lurker than anything though. . .

    ("...welcome to writersforum then..." replied the goblin who too lurked somewhat on writer's forums, adding "...guess I, like you, come here to read directly then where perhaps we're some of an increasing number who do I suppose, moreover, by this observation both forum readers and forum readership are born, where perhaps too, a certain type of writer is born as well, one who might care little for the 3% who read literature and even less for all that closed shop of submit to publishing world, someone instead who just writes in his or her posts without those pre-conditions, but I digress now...", as the goblin drew a circle in the air to reveal once more that small table with the finest filtered coffee and some home-made biscuits upon it, to which he opened his other hand to produce two cups, handing one over to PrincessBatman, saying "...lurk away but you'll write for us won't you, I mean who knows what they can come up without an occasional post or two, where those forum readers do lavish attention upon those whom they find alluring...")

    Welcome to Writing Forums, PrincessBatman!

    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.
