    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Maj Ikle, Mar 15, 2013.

    i've joined this site today because, probably like everyone, i need to know if my work is any good or not. i like the idea of us writing reviews in order to post because if everyone was posting and no-one was reading we wouldn't get very far, but i'm not sure where to source the eligible pieces of work that are ripe for review.
    l'm about twenty pages into a novel called the queens garden, a speculative fiction about britain in the year 2055 and what it's like for the women. but looking forward to reading other peoples work x

    ("...welcome to here then, hope you find someone to exchange your works with too..." smiled the goblin suspecting that most publishers required an on-line presence of their authors now, after all, most readers trusted word of mouth through forums than snazzy book covers in some bookshop, adding "...care to practice you on-line presence then human, because here not some writer's workshop for would be writers, no, here is your showroom window now...", and with that the goblin dipped his hand into his pocket to pull a full length carpet with coffee table complete with finest filtered coffee and homemade biscuits, saying "...yes, one has to be well prepared for doing welcomes on writersforum, our numbers swell even as we speak...")

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Maj Ikle!

    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.
