Author's Ink

We grow writers!

We are...

A select group of writers who value intelligent and honest critique.  If you don't understand how to say, "I hate this" in a positive and helpful way, then you're in the wrong place.  We don't critique for points or credits, we do it for the love of the work and our members. 

And we're choosy about our members.  It's a top-notch team!  If you'd like to be a member, you'll need to contact us first, and do include a sample chapter.  The work doesn't have to be perfect, or finished...but it must exhibit potential and a certain degree of skill.  We'll read your chapter and vote either thumbs up or thumbs down.  To be accepted here is an honor.  Once you've been accepted, you'll receive the appropriate pass-codes with which to publish your chapters. What's in it for you?  As I said, good, honest critique from intelligent people.

Beyond that, you may link your own blog to this site.  Potentially, your readership will grow from ours.

One rule:  Never, EVER, edit, change, or copy another writer's content.  All rights belong to the author who posted the work, without exception.*
