Groups and Forums

by Lindsay 4/23/2009 11:35:00 AM

We have recently added a couple new features to WritingRoom that we are very excited about. 


The first is WritingRoom Groups.   Here you can start a group about an author you like, a style of writing or anything that is on your mind.  You can also join groups that interest you.  You can create times to meet, get writing advice, ask for critiques and even have a group chat in one of the group chat rooms.  There are already some great groups formed.  Check them out!


The next is the WritingRoom Forum.  You can come here and chat about any and all things writing and reading.  You can post a note about wanting comments or reviews and you can find people who are looking for the same


We hope you enjoy these new features.  We will continue adding new and exciting things, so keep your eyes open.  If you have any suggestions of things that you would like to see added or improved on send us a message!

Poets ~ Gain Exposure for your Blogs

by Lindsay 4/14/2009 10:36:00 AM

A Great Opportunity For Bloggers From  Blog Jog


So what is it exactly?
It's an event being run to raise awareness in the Poetrydances Poetry Network and the personal blog sites of its members. Whereby members visit and join/sign up to a limited number (6 min. but the more the merrier!) of other member's blogs.

What do you need to have/do if you want to get involved?
- Join/be an existing member of
- Have a blog site (outside of Poetrydances)
- Just add  your blog's link to the list by replying to this news item:
- 'Badge up' to Poetrydances- by picking up one of our badges and posting it on your blog.

When is the jog itself?
It starts on April 25th and will last until the end of April. During this time you (if you are a participating member) will need to visit the 3 blogs on either side of your own blog on the list- don't worry if you are at the start or end of the list because both 'ends' of the list will be joined to form one 'loop' in effect. (i.e Members at the start of the list will visit sites at the end of the list where necessary and vice versa)

Sign up now at and post a link to your blog. Also please' Badge up' to Poetrydances as soon as you can, but at the latest prior to the 25th April.

Thanks to for sharing this great opportunity with the WritingRoom community!
