MORE WRITING WEBSITE http://www.morewriting.co.uk/  

 

This is a very useful and active creative writing forum, with regular running competitions and a chance to have work assessed and evaluated by fellow writers in poetry, non-fiction, and story telling. Members (free subscription) establish a portfolio in which they introduce themselves and list the work they have presented to the various forums on the site. When you find a writer whose work you appreciate, you can click on their portfolio to see what else they have done. There are sections for active discussion of all aspects of writing from getting ideas in the first place to what makes a good beginning or ending. There are countless slinks to other writing pages, and many members are happy to show their own websites and blog pages too. A books section allows members to rate the best writing books on the market as well as just discuss their current reading material, - reading being as important to the writing craft for many as actually penning our own work). With new material flooding onto the list all the time, it is useful that they have a latest entries section, which allows you to see what has been added since your own last visit. The real highlight however is their online competition pages, (there are no prizes other than the prestige of being a potential winner), in which the competitors vote for each story submitted other than their own work - - the stories can still be posted for critiquing to the various relevant sections of the vast and growing forum. A favourite is the 60-word competition, in which the stories have set titles, chosen by the winners of the previous competition, and where each entry has to be exactly 60 words long. It is quite a challenge, but it really helps to discipline the writer for being concise and precise in what is written. Every word has to count. Initially it can be a bewildering site to find your way around as there is so much stuff to do here, but once you learn to navigate your way around, its potential for the writer is exceptional. http://www.morewriting.co.uk/
