    Use of the Success Stories forum

    Discussion in 'Success Stories' started by Writing Forums Staff, Mar 1, 2015.

    The Success Stories forum is where established members of the forum can go ahead and brag away about their success in publication. Be it books, anthologies, articles, whatever. Links and pics are permitted so long as they fall within the rest of the forum guidelines for such things. The area is meant for our established community; thus, creation of new threads is limited to Senior Members and Supporters.

    I agree. :) I think it's a terrific addition on the part of the owner since getting published is the goal. In the past it was something that was not permitted for various reasons, but now the venue and controls are in place to make it a great opportunity for our community to share success without getting spammed by fly-by-night self-promo. :)

    I assume supporters donate money - what do senior members do to earn their rank?

    I was hoping for something more esoteric. Can I assume there will at least be a masked initiation ritual of some sort? Blood oaths?

    cool! had to share my little success, I really do enjoy doing what i do to get my work published, and actually have people see it! i may not get paid in the traditional sense, but free music is as good as anything in exchange for articles/reviews right?
