I've been thinking about this more.

khalou, the board you opened is great, but the Fool boards are inherently more appropriate for extremely short writing. And I don't feel comfortable broadcasting my writing to the entire world. What we need is a closed forum - the difficulty is keeping it going, I've belonged to them in the past and while everybody wanted to submit material, no-one wanted to take the time to critique!

I think I'm at the point in my writing efforts where I am willing to put more time into editing - of my own stuff, and others. Especially others, as that's a skill I'd like to have for my professional development.

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 envision a small community where we can discuss writing ideas, encourage each other, receive and give feedback in a safe setting. Fiction and non-fiction, beginners and published writers. This would be off the Fool boards, format to be determined. Please e-mail me or respond if you are interested.
