All Members

Welcome to shared_wisdom. This is a community that explores writing and everything that accompanies it.

Every day:

Writer members are welcome to post about specific problems they are experiencing for brainstorming purposes.
Also, anyone who wants to try a new type of fiction, or would like to set new writing goals can ask for suggestions.

Membership to this community is open to Adults Only. You must be 18 to be a member of the community.

All discussion threads may be open or friends-locked: if a member feels the need to flock to the community sensitive material, they may do so. This may include our speakers, so if you don't want to miss any topics, it is suggested you join the community as a member as well as friending it.

Treat fellow members with respect. Absolutely no flaming. Differences of opinion are to be discussed in a civilized manner.

NO pimp posts here that are not first approved by the mods. Anything that isn't cleared with us will be deleted.
