Welcome to YWS, ken! I hope you love it here as much as I do! To get you started, I'd love to check out your writing! You can post it for reviews and critiques through The Publishing Center, which is at the top of every YWS page. The site has something for everyone, and we take a lot-lot-lot-lot of pride in that and always strive to improve, so if you find yourself wanting for more, be sure to ask! You never know what you or we may be missing out on! ;)

Hit me up if you have any questions!

Hey @Ken95 -- in order to earn points you review works found in the "literary works" section of the site. (Fuller reviews get more points than short reviews and ones done from the Green Room also get you more points).

Here are a couple quick threads if you need help getting started on reviewing, but the main advice I normally give is simple - write a review that you would appreciate receiving, find some criticism, find some praise, try to help the author out. Not too complicated at all! Here's the links to a few quick explanations of reviewing though:
A Rundown on Reviewing
The YWS Critique Sandwich

Hope that helps! If you have any more questions reach out! And to notify someone that you're responding to them, just put the "@" symbol before their username and then they get a notification. Like this -> @alliyah
