PLEASE BE AS DETAILED AS POSSIBLE ON YOUR FORMS TO ALLOW FOR GOOD MATCHES:
We have a lot of mentees waiting to be adopted. As soon as more mentor forms come in we will search for your true
literary match.To those still waiting, have faith...we will find the right person for you. As soon as we get mentor applications in I start pairing, and I have admins now who can help. So this should, by rights, go quicker the more mentor appications we get.
If you feel that your pairing is not working out after two weeks or more of trying it out, please note the group and it will be re-examined.
is running low on prose pieces to critique and the critics are hungry for work. If you have any prose that you want critiqued please place some questions in your comments
(they help with guidelines as to what you want looked at specifically), summarise your story
(if it is a multiple chapter story and you are not submitting chapter one) and submit - you don't need to be a member.
It has come to that time where we evaluate each other. Please evaluate your buddy/mentor/mentee by completing The Evaluation Form
which will come to my email. Any problems I will be ironing out.
This process will be taken with great care and no 'slandering' will occur. Any issues will be sorted amicably and in an adult fashion with no flaming etc. At most it will mean a change in partner, at least a change in communication.

Our Anniversary Gift, To You
Today marks theWrittenRevolution's fifth anniversary, and we can finally re-start a project we were very fond of: and in the best tWR fashion, we bring it back to you packed with innovation!
What is the Mentorship Project?
It's a learning system for our members, that works through a series of mentees (aka the deviants who want to learn, or rather, "be taught" new things) and mentors (the more experienced deviants who feel confident enough to teach - and maybe learn something new also ), that we help form pairs to follow the Project.
What does the project consist of?
was once a super group and I would like to restore it to its former glory so that more people can be reached and so that the group can be organised in a way that is more accessible to the general deviant and members.
Point donations can be made to MagicalJoey clearly stating that the donation is for this group.
Cash donations can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org clearly stating that the donation is for this group.
If you come across a literature contest within the groups you are a member of where points are offered as a prize of any form please inform me so that I may enter to try and earn points.
Admins More admins are needed.
If you would like to apply fill out the Administrator Application Form
Alternatively check to see if a friend or watcher of yours/person you watch is interested in joining. Note:
You can be an admin and a mentor/mentee/buddy just as you can be a mentor/buddy or mentee/buddy.
Example from a Mentor Form Filled in With Detail:What do you expect from your mentee?
I expect that they are already competent in the English language (unless English is not their first language). That means they know how to spell and utilize punctuation - I don't plan to do a job that Microsoft Word will do for them.
I also expect that they're willing to take criticism; I can be blunt, though I do try to soften the blows as best I can. I *will* tell you if something sucks (not in those words of course). But I'll also advise how to make it better.
I don't expect to get anything out of it except experience I guess. I've been told that I would make a magnificent editor, and I'm working towards that goal now, or at least seeing if it really is something I would enjoy making a living from.
