Hello everyone. I write more then I do anything else, and my poems and stories basically just lie around my room all day gathering dust. I can't share them with friends or family, they are far too deep for anyone who knows me to read. So I need a mentor to just read my stuff, harshly critique them, just basically help me get better so that eventually, I can publish them. Message me or contact me through AIM. My AIM screen name is: brandnewpeanuts. Thank you.

Love,

You've mentioned poetry and short stories. What kind of genres are you writing in? We might be able to fit you a more proper mentor that way.

Best of luck,
Katie

The best way to get published is to submit what you write, and to keep submitting it over and over and over. This is how you learn, and it will be real editors who give you the best feedback you'll ever receive.

Even a mentor can't help stories that are lying around gathering dust.

I mostry write in genres consisting of love, heartache, pain and self examination.
