    I'm here to learn

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by TomDriscoll, Jul 26, 2012.

    Hi there!
    I'm a college student, but I have this sort of side-passion for writing. I've written one novel (self-published) and now I'm trying to work through both school and the ideas in my head for the next book. In the meantime I've been writing short stories, poems and the like. Ergo, I assumed this was the perfect place for me to come. I can't wait to get some feedback from everyone for my writing! I think we'll get along just fine. Thanks for having me.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Tom!

    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, Cogito, 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.

    Hi, Tom!

    What was the genre of the novel you published? I like to read all types of genres but my favorite to write is paranormal/fantasy. What about you? I used to write poetry, too, when I was younger!

    I'm a college student too! What is your major? I have an Associates in Accounting and I'm working on my Bachelors in Business right now.

    Well, I think you will like it here! I am pretty new here too and I have found plenty of people to network, share, and learn with! I'm sure you'll do the same!
