This first in a series about on-line writing communities in which I have complied.
Do you want your poems or stories to have more exposure and perhaps get noticed by a publisher.
I am providing a list of on-line writing communities for everyone. I posted the same list over at http://writerscafe.org.
1. http://storywrite.com it is free but if you want to post pictures you must buy a silver or gold membership.
2. http://jabbertale.com is totally free.
5. http://hellopoetry.com is for poetry
6. http://fanfiction.com is just for fan fiction
7. http://fictionpress.com is for original poetry and fiction.
8 http://thenextbigwriter.com/ you must pay for if you want your story published. I recommend that you stay away from it.
9. http://booksie.com is totally free
10. http://wattpad.com is free.
11. http://writing.com is only free up to a point.
I am sure I have missed some of them, but these are only 11 that I know about.
Oh yes and 12, http://authorsnation.com is free.
http://fanstory.com is not free. It requires an $8.95 monthly membership and you may only post three stories a day. The members are very critic over there as they are over at http://thenextbigwriter.com
