Last poet standing!

I'm joining a poetry community that looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. Every week there will be a prompt to write a different type of poem. The winner even gets a prize!

They need some more folks to join before they can get started though. Please consider joining.

Do You Like To Write?

Like to write? Love writing poetry? Great! There is a new challenge, called lastpoetstandng, where you write a a poem every week based on a different style of poetry prompt! Then they get voted on and the person with the least votes is out that week and the person with the most is safe the next week till you have one author standing who wins! What do you win? A snazzy graphic and a $10 GC to Amazon or Barnes & Noble. You don't even need to be a GREAT writer!

..who will come out on top?

Currently auctioning...

Hi all,

as I am tidying up a bit at home I am also putting several things on ebay, among other things

The Writing Book:
A Workbook for Fiction Writers

by Kate Grenville (condition: new)

So, just in case anyone is interested...

I would also like to use this opportunity to encourage you all to use this place if you want to sell anything writing related, books, tools, computer stuff that might be useful etc. For that purpose, I have set up the new tag "Selling".

It has become a bit quiet here, and one of my resolutions for this year is to revive the group, so: Keep posting away! :)

A free pdf-writer

Hello all! :)

My wish to revive this community coincidentally met with my stumbling across this free pdf creator.

I usually tend to shy away from freeware, as I am extremely paranoid about getting viruses onto my pcs. But this one was actually in use in one of the companies I am affiliated with, and I talked with an IT Pro about it... so today I have downloaded it myself and thought that I might not be the only one in need, so here you go:

(Errrm... do I need to state that 1. I do not make any money from this and 2. accept no liabilities whatsoever? ;))
