Okay, it's not brand new, but....

Just thought I'd pass along some thoughts...I think the options for writing communities aren't as vast and fruitful as I previously hypothesized when I first set out to experiment in them. In fact, there might be only 4 or 5 good sites worth publishing your work on. In all honesty, right? They also get blurred together, but I also noticed Harper Collins' InkPop.com is back online with a new look...if you didn't know, and it looks pretty cool.

I used to post work on their old site because I liked the fact that their editors actually want to publish the best work on the site--which is an amazing feature I think. Everyone talks about e-publishing and self-publishing but Inkpop also does that. Also like that the site feels like a real forum that listens to concerns. We all know what it's like to live in packed yet quiet forum when it seems like no one is listening...this is my recurrent reality at least.

Regardless, I'll be checking out the new site again soon after I finish a big project of mine. With that said, I'm willing to give InkPop another shot just for a change of scenery.

Might as well take a chance on finding a better space for better feedback. Heard of any other cool new writing sites? I want to know!

PS. Saw this really cool success story on e-publishing at NYT:
