Nice to meet you, Brad  :)

Please take a moment to read the guidelines for forum etiquette -,7415.0.html

You'll find Blue stickies  (with the push-pin icons) at the top of each board.  Read these.  They’ll help you find your way around and acquaint you with the local customs.

It’s considered good manners to critique a few pieces in Review My Work or Review My Poetry before asking for reviews yourself.  You’re more likely to receive helpful feedback after you’ve contributed a bit.

Consider entering any open flash fiction or poetry contests.  They’re fun and anonymous.  

And, If you ever get stuck in one of the dark, winding tunnels or have a question  feel free to pm a moderator – we’re the ones with blue stars over our heads.

Most of all, enjoy hanging out with the writers on MWC  ;D

Hello Brad and welcome.

One of the best ways to learn the basics is to read the work of others here and the critiques they receive. There is a wealth of information to be gleamed from them.
