Help Wanted

Ficly is a family and like all families, it’s quickly changing. Little chicks grow and soon leave the nest; family members come and go.
That means there is ALWAYS a space at the table for you!

Would you like to feel more involved in the ficly community?

Do you have a topic, idea, or burning desire to share your thoughts about ficly and writing with others?

Join the bullpen! We convene at

-Critique and sounding board for brainstorming

-Exclusive forum areas to post your blogs in the queue
-Your work on the ficly blog

Worried about deadlines and quotas? We post something (or try to) every Wednesday. With more people writing posts, there is more time to get your post polished up for publication.

Grammar not up to par? With other bullpen members reading and critiquing, you can get advice and edit your piece before its submission. Utilizing the advice of other writers is a key to growth.

What are you afraid of? Come on! Drop ElshaHawk a note to join in today!

    Sounds interesting, actually. I haven’t been on in a while (this is usually my blog comment, I realize) but this seems like a good idea for those who want people to see their editing process. It’d be easier to start series, too, without confusion.

    I like the open invitation to get more people in the bullpen. Who knows? I might even get back in the blog-writing biz.

    Elsha of Hawk Manor, you have done a marvelous job of holding down the Fort (blog) I am sorry for my dearth of valor. I hope to return soon with renewed vim and vigor, but while away on my current quest, I am comforted to know that others will be fighting (blogging) in my stead. []0)

    Fort Blog! Fort Blog needs a flag/banner to wave. :)

    Hi Elsha, I have a log on, and can view & comment, I would like to be considered for the bullpen.

    NOTE If you have recently created an account and are waiting for authorization, note me. I’ve had a couple requests and didn’t quite recognize the names. Use your ficly penname if it is available so I can at least search on ficly for anyone I do not recognize. I am here a lot, reading, commenting, I do recognize a lot of people, but I am not perfect! I have done everything I can to reduce spam and bots from invading the forum, and I do not activate accounts willy-nilly. This a courtesy to all. So, if you have gone to the forum and did not use your ficly name, please note me and identify yourself.

    I miss ficly. College takes up way too much of my time.
