The Internet Writing Workshop is a set of mailing lists (groups) that communicate in English by email. We are:
- A community where writers can submit and critique written works.
- A forum to discuss and get help on all aspects of writing.
- A public service educational organization, staffed by volunteers and free of charge.
The Workshop is open to all styles and genres of writing: literary fiction, genre fiction, poetry, children’s writing, essays, newspaper articles, scripts, you name it. Members do not need to be published writers, only to be serious about writing and about wanting to improve. Because some of the posted material may be controversial or adult in nature, all members must be 18 years or older.
Members participate by submitting their works and critiquing other members’ works. There are minimum participation requirements for each critiquing list representing approximately one half hour per week. Most members exceed the minimum because they find the process so rewarding. Many are surprised to discover that they learn as much from doing critiques as from receiving them.
