    Hi! :)

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by TheWonderlandInAlice, Feb 1, 2013.

    Hello, writers and readers of Writing Forum! I joined this forum recently after feeling like I needed to really connect with a group of avid writers and readers (which I'm sure many of you are) after having found that I severely lacked people who had the time and expertise to discuss anything to do with the art of writing. As mentioned, my primary reason for joining this forum was because I wanted to connect with fellow writers and readers, so you have probably already deduced, I am a writer myself. I just love to write, as I'm sure many of you do, and although I am relatively young, I don't think your age, or your experience necessarily equals the quality of your writing, rather; how much you have developed your own, unique voice and style that comes along with it. This is what I really want to experiment this year and the years ahead.

    A smile to sign off, :), The Wonderland in Alice.

    Welcome! I just joined the a few days ago and I haven't really had the chance to explore the forum in-depth but it looks amazing! Though I'm sure you've noticed that, too, else you wouldn't have joined. Of the many, many members active here, I have no doubt you'll find what you're looking for!

    I don't think age necessarily has any real factor on writing skill, but I do believe experience does. Of course, I'm coming from a place of having had lots of experience and since it's worked out for me I faultily assume that's the best way for things to go. I suppose I should say that experience lends good things to writing! That sounds way better.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, TheWonderlandInAlice!

    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. The requirements of the Writing Workshop don't apply to the contests, so new members are allowed (nay, encouraged!) to get stuck in and enter!

    If you have any questions or problems, then the moderators (myself, 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.
