New Writing Forums – Introduce Yourself

on June 7, 2011 in Writers' Resources

As recently promised here on the blog, I've expanded our freelance writing forums beyond just the virtual book club. So register today (it's free!) and stop on by to introduce yourself.

To help you get around, here's a quick breakdown of the forum sections:

Work at Home Chat

This is where freelance writers and other work at home professionals can get together and get to know each other to break up the sometimes lonely days involved with home-based businesses.

Book Club

This is where you'll find our virtual book club. Note that in this section you can reply to discussions but not start your own threads as they're reserved for book club picks. You can also suggest books for future consideration here.

Freelance Fitness

This forum section is based on a former blog post series we ran. It's not always easy to stay healthy when you freelance or work from home (that darned refrigerator calling your name). So if you're looking for tips or encouragement, here's where you'll find it -- from ways to incorporate more activity into your day to healthy snack ideas while you work.

Writer's Group / Writing Critiques

This section of the forum is where ESL writers can ask for help, you can ask other writers your questions about grammar, or you can see feedback from critique partners or beta readers. This section of the forum is only viewed by logged in members, so you can post without worrying that any old guest can see your works-in-progress. It should also help with concerns about search engines indexing the content before you have a chance to publish it elsewhere.


And there you have it. The new and improved writer forums are now up and running. Enjoy!

    Okay, I didn’t know math was involved in the registration, but Excel helped out. :-)

      lol Yeah, unfortunately forums attract link spammers. And you know me. I’m all about kicking some spammer ass. ;) I don’t believe that shows up if you register through the blog sidebar instead of the forum though, but I could be wrong. Either way gives you access to the forum and anything else we add for registered members only. If you signed up through the blog and it asked for some number-crunching, let me know. Would just satisfy my curiosity since I didn’t have to go through the blog subscriber registration process myself.
