    New Arrival

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by TomMcKenzie, Apr 11, 2012.

    Hello all,

    My name is Tom McKenzie and people would class me as a writer. Started with poetry years ago and have written some short stories and have this grand project (epic) in the works of which real life gets in the way more than it should. I've joined up to meet like minded people, to get honest appraisal of my work and as always learn from it all.

    I've had 2 poems published and have many more not seen the light of day. I have a very "relaxed" style, just let the words flow out of me and will always promise to fix it up later if it's important enough, so anything I show on here I promise for the spelling, grammar, punctuation etc. I'm a writer apparently, not a proof reader ;)

    Welcome to the forum Tom. Yes I have a relaxed style to I just curl up and let the drivel dribble from my mouth. Look around you might find something useful. Just return it when you're done. Check out the rules they are useful and that is no joke. Now go have fun.

    Welcome to Writing Forums, Tom!

    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.
