What do you do on this site? You read people's work. If so moved, you can review what you read. Writing reviews earns you site credits, which you can spend, and activity points, which help you improve your reputation.

You can also take your writing from workshopping to publication. You can make your work visible to only a cozy group, or let the entire community see it. All the ratings you glean on the site can help build the reputation of your work.

If you're a writer or publishing pro, we invite you to do the following:

  1. Use the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page to let us know about your writing achievements, and we'll set your starting reputation manually. Reviews you write are weighted by your reputation.
  2. Post your work.
  3. Get Reviewed. Using the Marketplace can help. Joining or starting a workshop can help.
  4. Attain a high rating for your work, and earn the Litropolis Seal of Approval. You can use it to promote your work, either to attract a publisher or to help market your self-published work.

There is no downside to getting noticed by publishers. You do not have to take any offers you're given.
