Topic: Welcome to the Fantasy, Magic, and Sci-fi group

Welcome to the Fantasy, Magic, and Sci-fi group (formerly the Medieval Fantasy/Magic group), an active meeting place for writers of all genres of the fantastical. This includes, but is not limited to, traditional fantasy, stories of magic, science fiction, space operas, steampunk, urban fantasies, and horror-style tales of vampires, werewolves, and zombies.

Be sure to check out the In Memorium thread for a tribute to Amy Sonada, the group’s founder, who passed away in 2019 after a two-year battle with cancer: https://www.thenextbigwriter.com/forums … onada.html

Although there are no strict rules for this forum (except be kind), if you'd like to use the forum for brainstorming with other members about your stories, the preferred practice is to create a brainstorming thread (i.e., a "topic"), usually one per story, named Story Name by Member Name or similar. Group members can then use that thread to discuss the named member's story. You can keep updated on discussions by subscribing to the threads that interest you, or simply check out the forum from time to time and comment when the spirit moves you.

Other topics/threads for other purposes are welcome as well, including requests for reviewers for new stories. Please be prepared to reciprocate, though.

If you're new to writing or new to the site, please also join the Writing Tips & Site Help group, where experienced authors and members will do their best to answer your questions. Be sure to check out the forum post in that group on how to maximize the number of reviews you get.
