Welcome to the Beginners Guide to Writing forum. On this page you will see a list of the forums you can contribute to – we have tried to cover as many to topics as possible so we hope there will be at least one area of discussion that is of particular interest to you. If not, let us know.

Through our forums we want to encourage writers like yourself not only to ask for help from others writers but also to share your own experiences. You can simply post a reply to an ongoing discussion or you can start your own. But before you do, please check out our Forum rules and guidelines. We want to build up a friendly and supportive network of writers and so our simple guidelines on online etiquette should help us to achieve this.

To contribute to a forum you must first register as a user. To do this, click on the Forum login link on the right-hand side of the screen. Once you have registered you will be able to login with your user name and password.
