Thanks for replying.
Yes, I was AlanH. I'm using my 'official' pen name now.
Sorry to hear the site is very quiet, but it was like that when I left. Frankly, I'm delighted it's still around, as there were (are?) some fine writers in residence, and from the UK. If you've ever spent time time with US writers, you'll know the difference.
It would be great if WriteWords did pick up again. Shortly before I left, a lot of work was done on a revamp. The pricing structure is also changed, and is now very reasonable.
Yes, I know the Intensive Critique group well, (maybe, potentially, a little too intensive for some - haha,) and I'm certainly going to investigate the poetry group, and others.
