I often post my wrting and poems at editred.com for feedback & comments.  Are there any other good sites to post your writing for feedback?  We don't get much in the Eclectic Pen.

writing.com is the end all be all as far as I'm concerened.  It's an awsome site for writers and readers alike.  If you post something you will get read on there and reviewed, and edited.  Plus there is a ton of great stuff on there to read if you just want to do that as well. 

The only problem is that the free membership is a bit limiting about how many items you can post.  You can always just post them then take them off to post more though.  Just be careful if you get a paid account.  You can post a lot more and get a lot more options but if you don't renew you may loose some of your writings that were over the limit.

Thanks for the feedback.  Any more good FREE sites?  I hate to have to pay for stuff if I don't HAVE TO.

Disclaimer.  Beware of writing.com.  It is crack. lol  I haven't been to it in a couple of years since I was on it all the time reading everything and entering all kinds of writing contests and reviewing tons of writing. and not getting my books read.  Now of course I had to go check it out again after telling you about it.  And of course it sucked me back in. 

Though I guess it's a good thing.  I have been wanting to get back into writing again.

Peace!

You don't have to pay.  You can still post 10 items for free, and get reviewed and edited and read others and such.  There is a ton of stuff you can do with the free membership there.  You'll just have to rotate your items through if you have more than 10.

If you do decide to join let me know your username and I'll read and review/edit your writing.  I love reading and reviewing people's work on there.  I think I tend to do that more than write my own stuff.  Probably because I get to read and write about what I read. So it's the best of both worlds for me. lol

My name on there is Sabbatha

I've in the past have used writing.com, I had  a few short stories posted and no one ever reviewed them.  It seemed unless you had alot of friends your stuff did not get looked at.  BUT the few people I did have dealings with were pretty nice.

http://www.forwriters.com/groups.html

If you scroll halfway down the page it lists online writing groups, I am sure you could find one that suits you.

As far as 'free' sites - the best 'free' sites on the internet are generally sites which offer a 'free' membership which includes all you really *need* to use their site - and then offers a paid membership with more benifits, or extra services for a fee. Like this one. running a website takes money, it has to come from somewhere. When the site is free and extra services are where the cost it, that gives you a chance to decide how to contribute to a site.
