  • Hi Logan15, welcome to YWS!

    I'm Hijinks, a retired moderator on the site. I'd be glad to answer any questions you have or show you around if you like - and any other active global moderators, as well as junior moderators and administrators are here to help and answer questions, as well!

    If you're not sure where to start, The Welcome Mat is a great place to get information about the website. You can check out the FAQ thread, or create a post in the Questions and answers forum. I'd also suggest taking a peak at The rules thread so you know what's allowed on the site! (Don't worry, we're pretty chill.)

    One of my personal favourite threads that I still refer to from time to time is The Big Book of YWS Codes - it has absolutely everything you need to know about ~formatting~.

    Also, if you're unsure where to start when it comes to reviewing, the Critique Sandwich and Review templates are really useful resources! You're welcome to ask me if you have any specific questions about writing reviews, too, of course.

    Since this is a writer's site, what are your favourite genres to read or write?

    Hope to see you around. :)

To be a master of metaphor is the greatest thing by far. It is the one thing that cannot be learnt from others, and it is also a sign of genius.
