Writing . com - truly the best site for readers and writers everywhere
This site, is one I stumbled on by quite a case of pleasant serendipity (a fortunate accident). It truly is THE online community for readers and writers everywhere to share their work, read other work, and gain appropriate, honest, and constructive feedback.
If you are a budding writer, this site will give you the chance to give your work the exposure you always wanted - for free! A free account will allow you to write you work - whether it be a novel, short story, or poem, and many other catergories - and display it on the site, and be given its very own copyright. People will then read it, and tell you honestly what they think. So if you are wondering whether or not to publish, stick it on here! You will find out what people really think of it.
Also, if you are more of a reader than a writer, looking for something new to read, you will find something to your taste on this site. HUNDREDS of new stories, poems, books etc, are being written for the site every day. And you may have the chance to make a difference in someones writing! Review it, and tell them what they think, and they will change it accordingly, making them a better writer.
Although an account is free, there are many levels of paid upgrade to purchase, allowing you to write more types of writing (eg. e-cards), and giving you loads of benefits! Trust me - it's worth it!
This site also has features such as your own email account, portfolio, and ways to reward items you have enjoyed, or say thankyou to people who have reviewed your work!
Something here for everyone, try it yourself! It really is the best site for anyone wishing to read, write, or develop a sense of self, and community!
