Do you feel overwhelmed by large communities?
Some people love big forums, but for others, interacting with a crowd can be daunting.
Here at Story Embers, we believe that a small group of like-minded people is an asset to aspiring storytellers. The Inklings made Lewis & Tolkien great, after all.
What if you could join your own tight-knit community of storytellers?
How the Guilds Work
Guilds are private sub-groups of our main forum containing 10 to 30 fellow storytellers.
Each Guild is led by one of our terrific Guild Masters and includes opportunities to…
- Receive encouragement and accountability
- Get your writing critiqued
- Participate in fun writing competitions between Guilds
- Build deeper friendships with other writers
- And more!
Every Guild focuses on a specific theme each year with a new discussion thread every week so you can hone your skills in that particular area.
