    Hey guys,
    I am new to your site and first I must say, the level of talent among you all is amazing and a small bit intimidating, if I'm honest! I have never, ever critiqued anyone's work before apart from my own, not sure if that counts! I have been trying though! I hope my comments are taken in the spirit they are meant- with respect! I am from Ireland, the West to be exact! Some of the spellings in my writings ( when I get the opportunity to post them!) will look different to you guys but we do spell words differently, for example 'colour' and 'color' ! Just thought I'd throw that out here before I get critiqued for my spelling!!!! Anyway, thank you for your inspiring work and I am looking forward to you guys having a read of some of my work!:rolleyes:

    I think that a fair proportion of the members of this site come from countries that use UK spelling. E.g. me. Welcome to the site.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Geri!

    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.


    P.S. I'll move this over to New Member Introductions for you, since it'll be a better fit and you'll get more of a response there :)
