Hi Eva. Thank you. I'd love to attend one. Perhaps I will when time allows.Hello @Alexander Carter Welcome. It would be lovely to see you personally at one of our Saturday Huddles. Saturday Writers' Huddle
Hello and thank youHi there, hope you get a lot from being here. And welcome xx
thanks for the heads up, Sam. I have started receiving themHi Alexander, and seeing as I've only been here about a week myself, I'm not sure if I'm fully qualified to welcome you yet.
However, as a fellow 'newbie', I would suggest checking your spam e-mail daily, as agent Pete sends you a nice series of welcoming messages.
Thanks for welcoming me, Dean. I sure look forward to meeting themWelcome, Alexander. I hope you enjoy it here. Lots of lovely people who are always very generous with their time.
Hello Ancora,Hi @Alexander Carter and welcome! Delighted you found us. Whatever you write, I'm sure you'll find lots of like-minded people here on Litopia. We're a mixed bunch but very friendly.
Once you get to know the place, check out the Workshops. Remember, don't be shy about offering your own critiques of others' work. Your opinions as a reader are as valid and important as anyone else's and will always be welcomed.
You could also submit the first 700 words of your own work to Pop-Ups if you'd like some feedback on the beginning. Lots of great advice on there from industry professionals every Sunday evening. I'm one of the Guardians on Litopia. If you have any questions, please get in touch. I look forward to seeing you around the Colony!
Hi Ancora, yes - you've answered my questions. Thanks so much.1,500 words will be fine, Alex. Best to submit it as one Word document, if possible. People have submitted more than that, so you'll be fine. The 700-word submission rule is for Pop-Ups on Sunday evenings, so we can fit in five submissions every week in our allotted time.
And yes, poetry is welcome here, I'm glad to say. Check out The World Between the Words in the Forum List, although we tend not to critique on that forum. But if you wanted to submit something to the main writing workshops, I don't think that would be a problem.
Hope that answers your questions
Looking forward to it.Hi Eva. Thank you. I'd love to attend one. Perhaps I will when time allows.
