Welcome to the members only section of the site. The aim of this forum is to give authors an opportunity to gain feedback on their work from fellow writers and readers. It's a place to give and receive serious, in-depth critiques, so please only post your stories or poetry if you're prepared to receive suggestions and constructive criticism. Already published works are welcome, as are works-in-progress. If you have a lengthy story you'd like reviewed, please submit one chapter or one easily managed section at a time.

If you'd like to be included in one of the following private critique groups, please send a PM to Maggie or Gypsy (facilitators for this forum and most of the groups) so you can be added. You can join as many or as few as you'd like.

• Action/Adventure
• Crime/Mystery
• Drama/General
• Flash Fiction/Micro Fiction
• Fantasy/Science Fiction/Supernatural
• Horror/Thriller
• Humor
• Memoirs/Musings
• Plays
• Romance
• Young Adult/Children’s

We look forward to seeing you around the forum! icon_smile

I really do like the Critique Forum, but I do have a question.

I noted the button "Edit" is added to all posts. Thus it appears that anyone may edit anyone's else's post.
I don't believe this is to be used while critiquing another persons words, yet how is it to be used?
Should we just quote the original post and critique with the new box?

I would also ask if the writer of the original piece submitted should go back and update their original words, thus allowing all to only comment on the 'improved' words.

If this has all been explained elsewhere, just point me in the right direction.

Please read A Gilded Cage and tell me what you think... Really!

I think this is a wonderful idea, and I'd be happy to add my opinions to muddy the waters in flash fiction/musings, and in the humor department.

I know my fantasy/Sci-fi & supernatural so I would love to be added to that group if possible.

:)

Toying with a story idea loosely based on Dracula's origins from Dracula 2000.

so far I'm liking what I am thinking.

Send a request to any of the mods, I believe. I usually just ask Yas, and hope she isn't busy.

Because I can,
because I want to,
And because who are you to tell me otherwise?
