Writing Forums

Writing Forums is a privately-owned, community managed writing environment. We provide an unlimited opportunity for writers and poets of all abilities, to share their work and communicate with other writers and creative artists. We offer an experience that is safe, welcoming and friendly, regardless of your level of participation, knowledge or skill. There are several opportunities for writers to exchange tips, engage in discussions about techniques, and grow in your craft. You can also participate in forum competitions that are exciting and helpful in building your skill level. There's so much more for you to explore!

Frequently asked questions

What are Conversations?
These are messages exchanged between members. You may have a conversation with one member at a time, or with group of members at one time. To start a conversation you can click on the avatar of the member you wish to contact, then click the 'start conversation' button in the pop up box.

You may also click the little envelope icon located on the upper right side of the Forum, next to your avatar, then click the 'start a conversation' option. There is also a 'Show all' option, which will take you to all of your Conversations. This envelope icon will display when you have a new message and the number of new messages you have.

Conversations between members will always reply to each member who is included in the original conversation without the need to add their names each time you reply. If you wish to, you have the option to tick a box which locks the conversation so no responses are allowed. You may also tick a box which allows anyone included in the conversation to invite others to join this conversation. When a new person is invited to the conversation, they will be able to view the conversation from the very beginning and will be included automatically in the conversation going forward.

These features will allow members to form their own 'groups' in which to brainstorm or work on group projects, etc. The possibilities are great.
