Are you a writer? Or a reader?

From the website:

"inkpop is an online community that connects rising stars in teen lit with talent-spotting readers and publishing professionals.
Our social networking forum spotlights aspiring authors and the readers who provide the positive springboard for feedback.
inkpop members play a critical role in deciding who will land a publishing contract with HarperCollins. Whose work will you help rise to the top? "

So, what that means is you can submit your writing to the website and potentially, be discovered as the Next Stephenie Meyer (or whomever).

If you are more of an aspiring critic, you can simply go on and react to what's been submitted, and vote for your favorites - and maybe see them someday in print on the shelves of your local library.

If you're wanting a real, live, writer's group, check out the events at your library - especially during the summer. Sometimes we even have actual published authors running writer's workshops.
