    Hello from Cardiff

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by Jacobb, Jul 15, 2012.

    Hello ,
    well ive be mulling over the idea of joining a writing forum for quite some time now. I guess ive gotten bored with talking to myself and or at my desk in trying to get some real feedback or results, i guess being back from uni/college for the summer i cant ask my parents to read everything....they'd probably think im abit insane or wonder why i put very strange words together , the fact im an art student dose not help the notion that im mentally stable even though im an illustrator i know i have a fine art heart inside.

    Anyway enough about me i guess , im happy to be here to be apart of something great and im looking forward to
    getting to know some people because internet friends are the best.

    anyway heres my writing blog

    and uhh .... yeah ?

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Jacobb!

    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, Cogito, 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.
