Home Sweet Home Contest April 2012
Critique Requested
Short Stories
Fan Fiction
I'm turning to the members of this group - the new and the old - to come together with me here and help bring this group forward. The question is, how shall we do this?

I'm going to boot up this group again. I'm actually going to this time. :squee:

So, how do you suppose we kickstart this group? Let me know in the comments. In the mean time, I'll let you know a couple of my ideas...


Before, we have held two contests here and both have been particularly successful. The first with the theme of Temptations, for our Valentine 2012 contest, and the second with the theme of Home Sweet Home contest.

I plan to hold another one here, but need assistance in deciding on the theme. These are the themes to choose between, comment with your favourite below:

A Game
Winners and Losers
Unopened Letters

The Pinboard

The Pinboard is my little baby, here at writeaway, and I regret to say that I have indeed neglected it. In brighter news, we're bringing this bad boy back! So, if you want to alert us of any contests, lit-notices, any member achievements (DD and DLD), any lit-groups or deviations that caught your eye, please comment down below!

I hope you're as excited as I am. Please comment and let me know you're still there! :wave:

I assume the group is dead then. I guess I'll take my leave - it's a shame really :(

Hello everyone!

I am currently offering a speed critiquing service for those who want to get professional standard feedback on their prose writing/or poems at a cheap price. I've just finished my latest 45,000 editing/proofreading job and I'm looking for new works!

You could have your short story, the first chapter of your novel or one-act script read by the end of the day with in depth feedback on how to improve!

If you're interested in finding out more, follow the link to my job service forum post.

I look forward to hearing from you! =D
