The title says it all really. We all dive into the short story and poetry threads with arms and minds wide open. Try to remember though that writing takes many forms, each as valid, creative, difficult and exciting as the other. Take a look at the non-fiction forum. There's not a lot of action. Frankly, my fellow users, you are staying away in droves! Don't be scared, it's not all boring and dull and technical. I like to think that there's some pretty cool, honest, truthful stuff being posted down there. The thing is, non fiction needs your feedback too. Not the kind of feedback that can be had from journalism lecturers- it's not all journalism. Non-fiction writers need the same kind of feedback that fiction writers need. Are the spelling and grammer correct? Is the text clear in what it is trying to say? Does it grip the reader? You know the drill, it's what all writers need- a little guidance to get them and keep them on the path of that holiest of holies, good writing. So pay us a visit, and leave your words of wisdom, because at the moment, I think I speak for all of us non-fiction writers when I say that we feel a little ignored and marginalized. Thanks for listening!
