A Place For You

Writing.Com is really a place for everyone.

The writers:
The site offers writers one of the most diverse places to learn to write at their own pace. Whether a writer wants to learn how to instill life into 6 word stories, epic poems, short stories or novels, it's all here. There are classes, contests, challenges, groups, discussion forums for writers. Some of those are limited by genre or by type. Writers of any skill level have a place to post their writing.

The readers:
Readers who want to have easy, free access to thousands of pieces of literature can find it right here. I have, in the past, searched for information on a topic and found it right here on the site. Because nobody asks for academic credentials to post here, the writing may not adhere to academic standards, but sometimes that is the charm of it. Reading about any topic from the text of an interested person who wrote it for personal reasons can be so much more understandable than reading an academic text about it.

The reviewers:
One of the best parts here is how interactive everything is. Where else does a reader have one-on-one contact with the writer of a piece? Where does a writer have one-on-one contact with a reader? Being able to read and comment on the text makes reading so much more satisfying. Reading each other's work can spark great conversations about grammar, spelling, sentence structure, and more.

The learners:
Because Writing.Com attracts writers from all around the world and from so many backgrounds, it is very possible to learn about non-writing topics right here on the site. But, this site is also the right place to come to learn how to master all aspects of writing in a comfortable setting.

The teachers:
Some people really like to help others and they are right here on the site. They give advice, offer educational activities, and help identify some of the scarier grammar and punctuation secrets of the English language.

The evergreens:
Members who have been with the site for years and are still active at writing, reading, reviewing, and more. Somehow, it's hard to grow tired of this site.

The newbies:
Writing.Com is hands down one of the friendliest and most inclusive places on the internet. Anyone who is new to the site and even just tries a little bit can find help on how to best use the site, writing advice, and lots more.

The activity hosts:
Some members really like the social aspect of the site. Year-round, there are fun activities to take part in. Those can be centered around writing or reviewing, but that's not all. There are post card groups, letter writing groups, zoom meetings ... and if there is anything that isn't here, somebody is probably thinking about it right now. Is it you?

Ask & Answer

I received no replies to my last Noticing Newbies newsletter "Newbies of 2018

{c:grape }There is simply just no question about it: 2020 has been an apocalyptic year, with a pandemic, race riots, etc. Yours truly is in the early planning stages of creating a brand-new digital calendar for the year of 2021, a year in which all of us would be thinking the same thought right now: A year of hope. This year's calendar girl in which I shall be drawing this year should be wearing a fashion based on a symbol that would represent hope in this coming year. That is where you fellow members of this great writing community called Writing.Com come in! I need your help to determine which symbol of hope would best represent this coming calendar year's digital calendar; whichever symbol with the most votes shall very well be featured in my new digital calendar, which will be coming soon! But for right now, I would very much like to know: Which symbol of hope would very best represent the calendar year of 2021, in which we hope would be a Year of Hope? Choose with your heart, and good luck!
