Writers: give & receive critique
Posting Access:
All Members , Moderated

We're not here to fluff up your ego. Nor are we here to rip you to shreds. We're all about downright honest, constructive criticism. If you're here looking for some solid feedback on your writing, then you've come to the right place! Here, ALL writers have the opportunity to receive critique on their work, as well as give it to others, in an effort to learn and grow as a writer. You are also strongly encouraged to participate in our writing challenges, try out the prompts, and discuss anything and everything you wish to about writing. And no matter what you write, whether it's fiction, non-fiction, poetry, prose, stories or essays - hell, even fanfic* - it's all welcome here. If you want to improve your skills and learn from other writers, then this is the community for you.

Before joining, or shortly after doing so, be sure to read the community guidelines. If you don't follow the guidelines you'll be chased up by a moderator and you risk being banned. You should be looking to post at least three critiques for every piece of writing you post. It's only fair to give out critiques for other writers when you want them in return. Critiques can be harsh, but they must be constructive, offering advice and suggestions on how to improve. Personal attacks will not be tolerated. If you feel something said to you is out of line, contact a moderator at their journal, or by emailing wordvines@gmail.com and we'll follow it up. DO NOT get nasty or abusive back at the other party, or you risk being banned - leave it to the mods to deal with.

Now, get posting and get critiquing. We're here to learn and grow as writers, not sit around reading potentially useless info pages, so get out there already.

* Feel free to post your fanfiction, but be please be aware that if you do post it, you may not generate as much feedback as you would like, or as you would in an actual fanfiction community.
