Hello and thank you for reading this announcement. Read.gif

Mosaic Musings (MM) mm.gif mm.gif is a writers’ workshop (membership site) for those seeking genuine commentary and criticism on their works. Newcomers are very welcome.

By offering friendly, yet thorough, critiques, we will support and encourage members to polish their work in a setting that is relaxed, fun and challenging. Within our forum board, we offer a variety of critique and exhibition forums, exercises, poetry and prose education, challenges and competitions suitable for all writers, from novice to expert.

No matter what stage you have reached in your writing, if you have the motivation, you will be heartily welcomed here at MM providing you:
(1) Have a desire to improve your writing and a willingness to help others improve theirs.
(2) Follow MM’s simple rules - designed to make membership comfortable, respectful and beneficial.

Membership is free. Meet your new friends and make Mosaic Musings your home away from home. Help us reach our full potential as writers beginning today.


Mosaic Musings Posting Standard

Mosaic Musings is designed to meet a suitable standard for our readership. No explicit, obscene or profane language-themed writings and/or implications thereof are allowed within the public forums. If you are a gold member in good standing, we encourage you to post these kinds of topics in our adult-themed forum, Shambhalan Sanctuary. Themes that include cutting, rape, murder, suicide, abuse and the like should be reviewed with a member of the staff prior to posting.

If your post(s) contains any such material, then please email or PM one of our staff members (AMETHYST, Arnfinn, Cleo_Serapis, Eisa, Imhotep, JLY, Psyche) prior to posting and we will review and respond to your request for clarification.

That is not to say that any metaphorical or humorous aspects of a piece will be regarded as distasteful. We are well aware of the satirical associations of today and any reciprocals are the pivot on which the world has turned for a very long time. There is, however, a line between good taste and explicit writing which is readily recognizable.

Should a moderator read a piece that could be interpreted as falling within the above categories, we reserve the right to immediately move the post into a restricted forum, Mosaic Musings » Staff Only Forums » Works Under Review » Ra's Renderings where it will be discussed and a decision made as to whether the content is appropriate for Mosaic Musings. If the post is deemed inappropriate, it will be kept in the staff only forum. Otherwise, it will be returned to its original forum. Whatever the outcome, the author will be informed by PM. This in no way reflects on the author, rather it is intended to uphold the standards (and limitations) that Mosaic Musings has placed upon itself.

Mosaic Musings endeavors to become the most uplifting, educational and inspirational writing site to and for all ages and cultures of people. A visitor or member of MM, will be able to invite their relatives and friends to come, read, write, and enjoy our site. We stand unequivocal on this posting standard. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact a Moderator using our "The moderating team" link located near our board statistics information.


Fostering Feedback
Thank you for your interest in our diversified forums. These areas exist to help members hone their writing skills and foster feedback. Works are posted, then readers offer feedback and positive suggestions for improvement.

Since such detailed crits and/or comments require considerable time and effort, it is both polite and good practice to respond, fully, to all suggestions offered. Also, in the spirit of the forum, one is expected to offer helpful commentary on others' works and positive suggestions for improvement are always considered. Why not check back in on topics you've critiqued to see if the author has incorporated any of your own ideas or requests further feedback?

When revisions are posted, please make a note of the revision and date in your topic title(s) or title description(s) and that way, we'll all know to check back in again and offer further comments too.

This interaction (we share here at Mosaic Musings) is an integral part of our continued growth and evolvement as confident and competent writers. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact any of our staff: AMETHYST, Arnfinn, Cleo_Serapis, Eisa, Imhotep, JLY, Psyche
