Retired Cop
« on: November 24, 2012, 11:36:30 PM »
Hi, I'm a retired west coast cop who currently writes for a - insert affected gasp here - law enforcement publication. I am not really sure what opportunities await my exploitation herein, but seeing as newbies are encouraged to introduce themselves ahead of time...

Hi -- we'll bug you for information and encourage you to be creative . . . for fiction and non-fiction, as long as it's not for dry reports and you're allowed to bring your pieces to life! ;D ;D ;D ;D

You're not the only former policeman here . . . seems to be quite a few criminal law-enforcement scribblers around. :D :D

Nice to meet you, Writercop.

I hope you enjoy the resources and camaraderie here on MWC  :)

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
