The purpose of the Writers’ Club is to get people more active in the Library. In both writing and reviewing [though mostly the latter], the Library seems to be getting less and less activity. And so, that’s why I – with the help of others – created this club. The basic motto is “review and you will receive reviews” – which is exactly what this club is about. If you join, then you are asked to review a certain number of literary works per month. Also, there will be a Library compiled of literary works written by club members; those must be reviewed first, in return for any reviews you have given.
We ask that before one joins, you agree to the following:
-You agree to review at least three literary works a month. If you are part of the SSCC, ECC, or COTSCG then two of your three reviews may be done for those clubs. However, I ask that for at least one review, you either review something from the Writers’ Club Library or a story in the BZPower Library that hasn’t gotten much attention [for now, you only need to review something from the BZP Library that you think needs a review; I'll put up a Library entry and once that starts getting some attention, then you should review those if another club member hasn't].
-You try to write frequently. All we ask is that you try to expand your skills. Whether it be writing in an RPG, or just jotting down ideas on a piece of paper that we will never see, I’m trying to get people to write more in this club.
Then, all you have to do is fill out the following form, and place it in this entry:
Current status: (Any written works of your own? Libraries? What stories [if any] are you working on right now?)
What do you like to write?: (What style of stories do you like to write? Longer/shorter stories? Mystery stories? Adventure stories? Romantic stories?)
What to look for: (as a reader/reviewer, what do you look for in a story? Good grammar? Interesting characters? Descriptions? Good solid plots?)
Misc: (What do you do? What other Clubs are you in? What forums do you visit in BZP? Anything else you want to put in here; hobbies in real life, etc.)
Once a month there will be a contest for all Writers’ Club members. Most of the time, there won’t be a prize, but it will instead earn you the title of “Writer of the Month” in the Writers’ Club, and should motivate you to write more.
I also hope to set up some sort of collaborative story between club members at some point, so you guys can discuss that in this entry, if you have any thoughts on the subject.
The first contest [with prizes, and possibly open to the public] will take place after the Short Stories Autumn Olympics have finished. Post here for any suggestions.
