Hi everyone. This is a moderated community, and all posts are locked to members of the community. If you want to read, you'll have to join. Go back to the info page and submit a request to join. After you do that, send an email my way (carrie (at) ofstarsandstone (dot) com) and let me know a few things like, why you want to join, what you want to get out of joining the community, and at least one sample piece of your writing or artwork. (A link to where your art/poems/stories are posted online is also acceptable). Also include your LJ username in the email so I can match you up with the request to join that LJ will send me.
The reason I ask for all of this is because of the nature of the community- we're here to do serious critiquing, and that requires a certain maturity level from everyone involved. I won't reject you because your work isn't good enough- after all, we're here to grow and get better, right? But I might reject you if I think you won't be able to take criticism with grace, or give it without flaming.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you decide to join us!
