    • Click on the link!

    • Next to Please Enter the Name of the Room you want to go to, type absolutewrite (this should now already say this)

    • If necessary, change your nick to your AW userid. (you can do this by typing /nick name-you-want-to-use so if you want it to be Bob, type: /nick Bob

    (if prompted for password for your id, enter your chat (nick) password)

    The room is open whenever there's an available Chat Op to moderate. Because of reported problems when the room isn't moderated, we no longer leave the room open when there's no available chat mod.

    Watch this space for more information, and if you have suggestions for events, regularly scheduled writing-related exercises or other ideas for the IRC live chat, get involved, start a thread, and share what you're thinking!
