Hi @Corryn, welcome to YWS - you might try checking out the will review for food thread where you can leave a link to your work for people who review short stories. You can also try reaching out to people and seeing if they'll trade you reviews. :)

Sometimes it takes a while to get a review but every work eventually receives at least 2 reviews because it's stuck in the Green Room until it does. Good luck, and happy writing!
maybe i make up colors for poetic cadence, but i don't think i can ever love someone who doesn't understand that teal is a different color than dark cyan

Iggy wrote:Hello and welcome to YWS, newcomers! If you've stumbled across this thread, you should definitely make a post to introduce yourself! Or you can make an individual thread, it doesn't matter to us. :)

YWS is a writers' site, and if you just so happen to be a writer, then this is the place for you! We currently have over twenty eight thousand members (28306 to be exact), so as you can see, we have a very popular site that grows and grows everyday!

My name is Iggy and I'm a moderator of the site! Any person in this color, this color, and this color is a moderator of the site, so please don't hesitate to PM them if you need help. Users in this color and this color are people who used to serve on the mod squad but have retired. You can find the official list here.

Now, let's get some guidelines and rules out of the way:

:arrow: We like proper English. That is, we don't substitute "da" for "the," we don't say "im" for "I'm," we don't say "u" for "you," and we expect you to capitalize each word of every sentence in your regular posts. Typos can happen, but don't start talking like you're texting. We're crazy like that.

:arrow: To earn points, you must review. And to submit works, you must have points. It's the circle of YWS! If you're having trouble writing a good review, read http://www.youngwriterssociety.com/view ... 87&t=57651. Make sure you mark your review as a review, or else you won't get points!

:arrow: We want you to rate your story or poem. That way, it can show up on the front page and everybody can see it. ^_^ If you have an f-word in your story or it's particularly explicit, rate it 18+. It won't show up on the front page, but people will know what they're getting into. Titles should have no curse words or all caps in it, so please refrain from DOING THIS and use asterisk (*) to censor your curse words appropriately.

You can find the official rules here. A useful FAQ to read can be found here.

Now that all of that is out of the way, let's start introducing ourselves!

Oh, and once again, welcome to your new home. :)


Hello there. You may call me Rose. I joined a bit over a few minutes ago.

Welcome @theelementofkawaii , @RosalynWilde , and @Corryn.
Respect is felt and lack of respect is also felt. If we all would respect eachother then the world would be better.

(I didn't realize there was a welcome thread^^')

Good evening!

I'm a Korean college student (permanent US resident).

My writing style involves a lot of dialogue and character focus, so it's rather different from most English-language works.

I love music and anime.

If anyone wants to do review exchange with me, please feel free to ask.

I hope we'll get along~

Hello all!

Call me Avi. I'm shy, but overall just a chill and friendly person.

I'm very new to this site and writing in general. I mostly read rather than write, but I thought I'd post a short story or two here for feedback. I love horror and angst, but I love cute, wholesome stuff too. <3

I hope to make some friends here! :)
