Our private on-line critique group, The Writer's Pen (PEN) (a sub-forum in the Authors by Design writers forum) is open again for new members.

The "PEN" is for serious writers seeking publication.

We are looking for writers of fiction (novels or short stories). We are open to most genres: Young adult, fantasy, sci-fi, light horror, romance, steampunk, mainstream, etc. Absolutely NO pornography, Satanism or mockery of any God-based religion.

Members must be willing to post something (chapter/short story) by the 7th of each month, up to three posts not to exceed 6,000 words total. Members must also critique ALL posts by the last day of each month.

If you think this group would be for you, contact me at paulwwest@yahoo.co. Also, come and visit Authors by Design at http://www.authorsbydesign.com/
