    I'm arbor, and I'm a writer. I know, magical and unexpected.

    I write poetry and prose, but more poetry recently. I write poems about journeys. Mine are more like stories. Each stanza is built to convey a certain idea, a part of the whole, but each is its own idea. I don't write about emotions, or events in my life, or anything "real" or "true", yet I try to include reality and truth into my poems through fantasy and lies.

    Good times.

    I'm currently working on a book of poetry called "The Pilgrims Path" which is a series of poems about shrines. The base format for each shrine is three poems, though some I've planned out will be more. The generic title for each poem is called the journey, the arrival, and the contemplation. The journey being the journey to the shrine. The arrival is the description of the shrine itself, and the contemplation being the core idea of the shrine.

    At least, that's how I have it set up right now. There will probably be other parts, some poems not even relating to shrines.

    And that is me.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Arbor!

    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 and Cogito) 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.
