    Welcome to YWS! Great job getting involved with reviewing already!

  • Hey MercedesBlue! Kind-of-late-welcome to YoungWritersSociety!

    My name's looseleaf! If you need any help navigating the site, feel free to ask me. Junior moderators, other global moderators, or an administrator would be happy to help you as well!

    To start you off on your YWS journey, here's some handy-dandy links:

    - following guidelines are important, so please stop by the FAQs and rules threads if you have the time.
    - to earn points to post your own works, you have to review! the Green Room is a great place to start, since you get extra points for reviewing works in it!
    - speaking of reviewing, writing good reviews is essential! the YWS Critique Sandwich S'more explains how to write a good review.
    - YWS has some very lovely people, so hop by the People's Tab to get to know them!
    - sometimes YWSers get together in write-ins to write and discuss our writing! check out I'm Writing, Come Join Me! to see if any are currently running!

    That's all I have for now! If you have any questions/thoughts/concerns, please feel free to PM me or any other moderators. Have a wonderful day!

    Hello! I'm Momo, and I'm so glad to meet you!

    I'm sure you already know this, but YWS is a writing community for young writers. You can post your own poetry, prose, novels, essays, movie reviews, and anything you want, really! You need 200 points to post a work, and you gain points by reviewing other works. The amount of points you get per review varies depending on how long the review is. The Green Room is where works with two or less reviews go, and you get an extra 25 points for reviewing a Green Room work. (There's also a group called the Knights of the Green Room that you can join.)

    If you want to introduce yourself, you can post in the Welcome Mat to say hi. You can also join The Newbies Club! If you have a few questions, you can look at the frequently asked questions for new users. If you have other questions, you can PM me or a moderator. The Big Book of YWS Codes also has a lot of great stuff!

    Again, if you have any other questions, feel free to contact me!

    Hey! Welcome to YWS!

    MercedesBlue Hey!
    Quick Question: I know I need points to post but when I get enough points how do I post? When I press the "Posts" section on my profile, I can't post anything like a chapter of my book.
    Is it not letting me bcs I don't have enough points?

    vampricone6783 The “Posts” section isn’t for posting new works. It’s for what I believe to be replying to forums. (I’m still not entirely sure what “posts” is for).

    To post a new work, click on “Publishing center” and press “add new work”. When you’re done adding the needed changes for your story, press “publish work”. It won’t immediately publish. You’ll have to write a blurb for your story, pick a genre you want it to be in, what type of book it is (Ex:Novel, short story, memoir), a rating, then publish.

    I just told you everything that happens so you know. It sounds hard the way I said it, but it’s actually really easy.
