Writing Clubs

It’s all in the details
New club event announced yesterday!
The aim of this club is to look at not only writing and finishing a story, but editing it after, and how to polish it so that it becomes really beautiful. The idea comes from my own experience on Fanstory. I have written many stories and the ones that have got the best feedback are the ones that I spent a long time editing by myself and using feedback from other people on the site. We will also look at ways to add small details to a story that bring scenes and characters to life. If you’re interested, please join and let’s have some fun together! Club Organizer is oliver818.

Poetry Scholarships
Last event announced July 27, 2020. Many poets here have mentioned to me how they would love to enrol in the poetry classes offered by the site but these are simply too expensive for them to contemplate. The GREAT NEW NEWS is that our benefactor has endowed A THIRD SCHOLARSHIP EACH YEAR That did not go unheard by an anonymous benefactor who has endowed the FanStory faculty with two poetry scholarships a year. These scholarships are each worth the $100 entry fee to a class, regardless of where in the world the member is based. The third of these scholarships will be awarded for a poetry class that will commence on SEPTEMBER 30th. This class will be entitled: 'Metre'. Details of the class are published in 'Classes Available'. Candidature is open to any Premium or Premier Shield Member who has registered as a candidate via this Poetry Scholarship Club. The awards will be decided by committee on the basis of candidates' reviewing activity. Registering with this club does not commit you to anything at this stage, but you must have registered with the club in order to be eligible for any future scholarship award. Once registered with the club, you will be contacted via pm that will give further details. Simply click to join us! Club Organizer is Pantygynt.
