Hello fellow writers!

I'm very excited to have found this writer's workshop. I'm currently starting to work on two story ideas.

I've never written fiction before (at least with the intent to publish). However, I use to write professionally with a focus on internal employee communications for a large corporation. I also use to be a managing editor for a corporate newsletter, as well as ran a few marketing campaigns.

Although I feel pretty comfortable 'writing', I am definitely a novice in the realm of storytelling! I look forward to meeting you all and learning from the critiques that I hope I am fortunate enough to obtain.

I am starting to read Orson Scott Card's "Elements of Fiction Writing," and so far it has been a wealth of wonderful information.

I'm looking forward to growing as a writer and storyteller, and feel so lucky to have found this workshop!

I started reading Elements of Fiction Writing and thought I'd take a look at any other resources Orson Scott Card offered. Found this workshop on his site. How about you?

The writing excuses podcast with Kathleen as the guest finally motivated me to sign up http://www.writingexcuses.com/ but I've known about hatrack more than 10 years.

Hello CSCastle, welcome to the treehouse! It's always great to see new members round here. I'm fairly new myself.

I recommend checking out TaleSpinner's flash fiction challenge. It's a good quick way to get your feet wet and get a lot of crits in the process.

Cheers!
