*Compass* Review Exchange:

         Would you like to receive a review for your story or poem? We offer a free review exchange. Here's how it works: Below is a list of items to review — either a story or a poem. Select one and send a review with a minimum count of 500 characters. Enter a forum post below with the subject, Review Exchange. In the body of the post, enter the review #. Type it with the code: {review:#######}. The review number appears when you send it. Copy it or write it down. It's also found at the top left of the review, which can be found in your portfolio under the Review tab at the top.

         Once you post the review number, an item of yours will be reviewed by someone from the "WdC SuperPower Reviewers Group.    (*Exclaimv* Please note: We only review items up to a 18+ rating and no fetish, erotica, novel chapters, or large word counts.)
