Online Writing Workshop for Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror

Become a better writer!

Same Details

There is a current workshop member with the same first and last name and/or the same e-mail address that you have just submitted for a new membership. If you are a current member but have forgotten your password or log-in name, please use the password/ID request form (or contact us) and do not submit this form. If you have deleted your membership and now wish to reinstate it, contact us and we will set you up again; do not submit this form.

However, if you just happen to have the same name as a current member, please add your middle name to the first-name text box or otherwise differentiate your name from the current member's. This will prevent confusion in the future. Then go ahead and click on the "Next Step" button to join the workshop.

If you are using the same e-mail address as a current member (for example, sharing a household or classroom account), no problem. Just go ahead and click on the "Next Step" button to join the workshop.

Reviewer Honor Roll

Listed here (and highlighted in each monthly newsletter) are the people who have given useful, insightful reviews that have been appreciated by the authors (or others who have learned from the review). After all, that's what makes the workshop go, and we want to give great reviewers a little well-earned recognition from the workshop community. If you've received a review you really appreciated and would like to the reviewer to appear in the Reviewer Honor Roll, just fill out the nomination form to send your nomination to the workshop staff. Nominations are added to this page monthly.

Reviewer: Kelsey Hutton
Submission: 'She Who Burns' by Kate Wooderson
Submitted by: Kate Wooderson
Nominator's Comments: Loved this review-exactly what I signed up to the OWW for! Lots of great, on-the-nail comments that articulated doubts I'd had about my story on a subconscious level but didn't know how to express. Perfect!

Reviewer: Marianne Kirby
Submission: The Earthly Garden by Christi Nogle
Submitted by: Christi Nogle
Nominator's Comments: I thought this review honed in on just what the story needed, and I appreciated that Marianne was also receptive to what I was trying to do in it. Thanks, Marianne!

Reviewer: Owen G. Richards
Submission: The Last Key Master Prologue Revised (Re-Written) C4C by Jason Magnason
Submitted by: Jason Magnason
Nominator's Comments: It is not often that someone sees potential in someone and acts upon it. However, when they do, it can move mountains. Owen has done me a great service in giving me the instruction that so many new writers lack the necessary resources to find. I am new to writing. I have an idea but no disciplinary skills in the art of writing. Owen has line by line helped me with this. He has shown me the flaws in my mechanics and given me the instructions I need to write a more effective piece of work. To Owen, I am grateful. -JMM
