    Welcome to the boards, Vicki. I look forward to seeing your posts in the Writing Workshop and hope we can help improve your writing. Just be sure to do some critiquing of your own (2 constructive reviews for every 1 posting of your own work), since this is a community for mutual improvement.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Vicki!

    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 requirements. 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.

    Second to the right, and straight on till morning.
    I'm passing the advice of reading a lot of other people's critiques first and reading a lot in general, mostly what's posted
    here and in threads you can add your comment to. Actual contribution to the Writing Workshop seems to be a lon run,
    at least in terms of quality of the piece you want to post.

    Good luck, resilience is the key ;)
