Hello, welcome to YWS!

YWS is a site for young writers (surprise, surprise!) to post there work and get feedback! There's also tons of events, contests, other fun functions, and the best part is the community! C: Basically if you want to get the most out of YWS, I suggest you get really involved in the community. Write and post works, review, chat with people, write blogs, join contests, join a role play and/or a Story Book, etc! There's so much to do here and to access all of that, all you have to do is dive right in. c:

If you have any other questions feel free to let me know!
I hope it's a good joke because otherwise I'll have got it for nothing...

WARNING: Do not take grammar advice from me... EVER.

Sweet! Welcome to the site! :) Holysocks gave a fabulous intro of YWS -- here's a thread that may help you too: Frequently Asked Questions for New Members.

Basically, yeah we're a fun writing community where you can post pieces and review other people's works (in addition to a bunch of other neat things).

If you have specific questions, definitely reach out!

Best of luck in your writing endeavors! :)

@Satrena - This area of the site is called the Welcome Mat, and it's just a place where you can come and introduce yourself to the other members of the site! Usually people do it by posting their own thread by clicking on the "Introduce Yourself" button on the left-hand side of the page here.

You definitely don't have to make an introduction thread if you don't want to, though - feel free to just dive in and explore the site! Be sure to check out the Publishing Center, where you can post your own stories and poems, and our All Literary section, where you can read works that other people post. :D
We're all stories in the end.

I think of you as a fairy with a green dress and a flower crown and stuff.

I think you, @Deanie and I are like the Three Book Nerd Musketeers of YWS.
