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!

Blog Policy and Posting Rules

Blogging on Writing Forums is an outlet for free creative expression, a space where you can stretch your wings and talk about the things that interest you. It is an opportunity to add interesting content to the site, to show off what our writers can do. We would like Writing Forums to be the best writer's site on the web so the rules and guidelines that keep the content of the rest of the site to a higher standard also apply to the blogs.
