Hi all. I'm currently doing a Creative Writing course and at the mo I'm supposed to be seeking out forums for writers and trying out asking for feedback. Do any of you know of any chat rooms or forums for writers (more specifically short stories and novels) on the internet, especially ones where you get get criticism on your work?

Have found a few, but none really appeal. Is it too much to ask for something as intelligent and friendly as chicklit???

Writer's Digest has a forum. I haven't used it, but I'd hope people who participate there would be a bit more discerning.

The Writer also has one, here.

THANK YOU FishDreamer. I have no idea how I couldn't find these when I was looking but I feel better now. They look better than anything else I've been able to find.

The NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) participants on this board often mention the very supportive forums there. I don't know if they run all year (or just in November, when the most frantic novel-writing is happening), but it might be worth checking out.

There's a very extensive forum at Forward Motion, which I've used and like very much.
