Thanks to everyone who set up the "consultations" system. I think that's a great idea. I've added a "Resources" section to the profile, with a link to the "Consultations" post, so people can continue to comment and add themselves as a reference whenever they like.

Does anyone have any other ideas on how to make this community more useful to writers? Can anyone think of any other resources that would be good to link to, or create ourselves? Please let me know if you can think of anything, or have any input on how this community should be run. :)

Also, if you would like to become a mod, PM me or [personal profile] sarillia.

Need a question answered? Look no further. Down this page, you'll find people who are willing to be consulted to help fellow writers. Just find a person who is okay being contacted with the kind of info you're looking for, and look at how they want to be contacted. I'm sure you can figure it out from there.

 If you wish to be a reference:

 Post a reply to the main post. Include the following groups:

 Qualifications: Anything you are formally qualified to talk about. This is where you list degrees or certifications you hold, positions you've held, courses you've taken, languages you speak, etc.

Life experience: What life itself has taught you. Where you come from, what your demographic statuses are, how you grew up.

Writing experience: Do you specialize in a certain genre or fandom? What's your writing style? Do you read every 1960s romance novel you can get your hands on? Go ahead and put it here.

 Other topics I'm knowledgable in: Have you researched a topic in-depth before, or do you have a talent in a field? Maybe you're fascinated about something, but didn't study it formally? What other hobbies do you have?

 How you can contact me: Any way you want. If you only want PMs, that's okay. If you have a chatname or email you're comfortable sharing, go ahead. 

 There is absolutely no pressure to list yourself here! Only post if you want to. If you're okay with being contacted, but aren't comfortable with a particular subject, feel free to not include it.

 If there are other categories I didn't think of, or suggestions to make, feel free to tell me.


There is also another wonderful place for getting questions answered, especially if you need more specific information. If you have researched a topic and aren't getting anywhere yourself, head over to

[ profile] little_details at Livejournal. They have a lot of members, and it's a great community. Be sure to check the tags at the side!

Welcome to [community profile] write_away, a community for people in all corners of the writing field to get together and talk about our craft. This community was founded upon realization that, though there were communities for people to post their work, there wasn't really a place for people to simply discuss writing. That's the goal of this community: to talk about writing with other writers. Topics can include any aspect of writing, whether professionally or just for fun. Cliches and tropes, grammar, publishing, editing, favorite fonts, characterization, pet peeves, or even just bouncing ideas around - this is the place!

The rules, found in the profile, can be summed up as: be nice, use common sense when posting, and stay on topic. Remember, this is a discussion community, not a place to post your fic!

Finally, I am currently looking for volunteers to help mod this place. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to be a mod! Any help is appreciated in making this community look nice and run smoothly.

Thanks for stopping by the community!
