    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Shimario, Dec 10, 2016.

    Once you meet the access requirements (as laid out in your welcome email - I forget exactly but i think its 14 days and 20 posts) and have given 2 decent critiques on other work you can post a piece for crit in the writers workshop. (second section of the board)

    you need to maintain an ongoing 2:1 ratio of crit given vs crit sought

    My advice would be not to post the whole chapter as shorter pieces have a better chance of getting crit - plus its not a good idea to put too much of your work on line if you want to publish it later (first rights yadda yadda)

    as its a chapter you can either put it in novels , or if it works alone as a story put it in the short stories genre that it suits

    • Posting in the Writing Workshop requires 2 or more constructive critiques of other members' work for each new posted work.
    • You must be registered for at least 14 days and have made 20 posts before you can create a thread in our workshops. (This requirement does not apply to members who purchase Supporter status.)
