Writing Posting Rules



This is the easy part. First, you find the appropriate forum you wish to post yours in; below is a description and link to each category. To go to the section, simply click on the name.

      Prose

      This is the place to put all of your creative fiction. This includes, but isn't limited to: general fiction, science fiction, fantasy, mystery. Anything that's fiction belongs in this category. Short Stories, excerpts from novels, or even full chapters are welcome in this section.
      Poetry

      This is the place to put all of your poetry. It doesn't matter if it's a haiku, or even just a few stanzas; it can even be an epic poem. This area is exclusive to poetry, so please make sure you don't put in any prose fiction or non-fiction. Music also can go in here.
      Non-Fiction

      This is where all your essays and non-fiction assignments can go. This section differs from the others because although you're allowed to post your essays, and everyone is allowed to see them, only a certain group of people can critique them, just as it was with the Writing Center.

To post your writing, simply fill out the template below and make a new topic in the appropriate forum. The topic's title must only be the title of the work. Below is the template, simply copy it and paste it into a new topic:

Code:
[center][size=14]Your title goes here.[/size][/center]

[b]Title:[/b] Repeat the Title.
[b]Author's Name:[/b] This should be your name.
[b]Genre:[/b] What genre? This could only apply to fiction. Omit if not necessary.
[b]Short Summary:[/b] Optional and self-explanatory.
[b]Warnings:[/b] Is there something the reader should be aware of before reading your work?

[hr]
Start typing here.

Spoiler:
Your title goes here.

Title: Repeat the Title.
Author's Name: This should be your name.
Genre: What genre? This could only apply to fiction. Omit if not necessary.
Short Summary: Optional and self-explanatory.
Warnings: Is there something the reader should be aware of before reading your work?



Start typing here.

You are not to post in anyone else's writing topic to critique their work. There's a separate place for this.

Critiquing Rules



    1. Follow all of the Common Rules. All the normal rules apply to critiquing and should be observed. Specifically, respect.

    2. Where to Critique. Once someone puts up a critique, if the request is public, you will post your critique in the same topic the person has requested their critique. If they request a private critique, PM them it.

    3. Be Constructive. Critiques like "awesum" or "it sux" is not appreciated, nor is it welcome. Critiques should be constructive and help build upon the work. It should neither be derogatory nor should it be slanderous. The only things we want to see is helpful comments.

    4. Be Creative. Help as much as possible. Everyone wants to hear about whether their character or their plot is right, but nobody ever is given critiques about their style or their tone. Try and encompass more than the conventional aspects of critiquing.

    5. Critique in an appropriate manner. If people request for their writing to be critiqued privately, do NOT critique in a public forum. Email them or PM them.


Rules can, and will, be always added upon; the staff will try to notify you of a change, but please check back again often.
