Thank you so much for joining. I hope you enjoy your visit. Do stay and participate as feels comfortable.
Let me begin by explaining my proposal for The Writing-Class Blog (TWCB)Forum.
In the first instance, primarily, though by no means exclusively, my vision is that it should co-exist, or co-habit, however it pleases you – you, that is, its Members - with The Writing-Class Blog. The content of the monthly blog is intended to serve as the catalyst for comment and conversation, for agreement or respectful disagreement, to succeed in contributions given to any debate generated.
Mostly, the blogs will investigate those aspects of writing and creative writing not commonly explored elsewhere. However, new, related topic suggestions will not only be grateful accepted, but actively encouraged – anything that keeps us working and talking in community.
Which provides an apt segue into The Writing-Class Blog Forum’s equally important second purpose.
If you’ve read my faux dictionary definition entry for “Writing-Class” (see main webpage at writerpdr.com), you will already have some understanding. I have recently begun to imagine writers “collectively”, as a noun, as a social class all of their own. One that can happily sit between the Working- and the Middle-Classes. In this way, it is all-inclusive and accepting and indeed celebratory of every writers’ self-identity and individuality, especially those who try to survive out there in the barren, tumble-weed margins, feeding on a diet of grit while thanklessly posting one submission after another - those otherwise under-represented in traditional publishing.
You know who you are.
While my hope is that discussions will take place independent of my own input once a new blog is posted, that’s to say between you, TWCB Forum Members, I will do my asap best to answer any question directed my way specifically.
So join me, and together, let’s start The Writing-Class Revolution right here.
