And I don't feel comfortable broadcasting my writing to the entire world.

This is the big one for me. I need a sense of security and trust, and that isn't something that is easy to build. My story (even if it is the worst thing you've ever read) means a lot to me personally, its been with me for a long while. I don't mind valid criticism, but I'm simply concerned about losing control over it or someone 'stealing' it in some form or another. I don't have a job, and don't have the funds to formally copyright something evertime I have to edit a line or do a major overhaul of a draft. Nor do I have the funds to pursue something legally if the need ever arise...

I'm willing to set up such a forum and guarantee a review (by me) of at least one item per week, if the interest is out there.

I think that some interest exists, at least tentatively. I'd be curious as to reading various material and trying to help and get a feel for what types of criticisms exist for others' stories too.
