  6. Thanks for the links. I've been to Critique Circle already and it sounds interesting, but they don't allow fan fiction on their site and my story - the one I'm using to learn writing - is fan fiction. So I'll just have to wait until I begin writing my own story before I can participate there.

    1. There are a couple sites I've seen that specialize in fan fiction. I can dig up the links if you'd like.

    3. The link I found most quickly was http://www.fanfiction.net/. (I have a coworker who writes and posts there.)

      I have a new Twitter follower with a fan fiction website, but I'm not sure whether there is a community there or not. That site is: http://howtowritefanfiction.com/blog/.

      You may want to take a look at Book Country. http://bookcountry.com. I've read few negative remarks about the place regarding publishing, but some other folks enjoy the community experience.

      There are other groups like Critters (http://critique.org/critters/) that you might also try. I don't know if they disallow fan fiction or not. It's just a critique group as far as I know.

      There are a couple Yahoo groups that may work out for you too. One is Critical Writing. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/critical_writing/. There may be others too.

      I'm almost certain there's another site dedicated to fan fiction, but I can't find it at the moment. If I do, I'll add it in another comment.
