Who We Are and What We Do

We're a group of often insanely dedicated writers who challenge each other to write better, to reach higher, to never give up on our dreams. One of the community's motto is Write here -- write now, which defines us well; the writers in the community talk about writing, but more importantly, we write. If you want to write, you'll find a tremendous amount of support. If you love to read, you'll find a whole horde of people who can carry on intelligent conversations about nearly any subject. If you need to research a book, someone in the community can usually round up answers on just about any imaginable subject.

We're a diverse group with members from around the world, so you'll find people around at the most ungodly hours, no matter how you define ungodly hours. No matter where we live in the physical world, here we're joined by a passionate love of the written word.

If you share that passion, join us. You'll find an army of kindred spirits inside.

The rules

The short version of the rules is as follows:

Remember that things you say in the heat of the moment will remain on the boards for everyone else to read long after you've had a chance to cool down.

The longer version of the site rules is here.

The Boards

The community is significantly larger than it will appear when you first enter. You will not see most of the boards when you first enter the community. You will only find them if you decide to join. In order to see new boards, you must create a membership and be logged in.
