What is Writersco?
Writersco is a community built around the love of writing. Whether your discipline is plays or poetry, novels or essays: Writersco has a little something for everyone. There are regular contests on all kinds of themes to test your skills and wit. Writersco is also fitted with a simple and effective system to showcase your works.

Why should I join as a writer/reader/roleplayer/agent?
As a writer you can have other writers go through your work, helping you grow, learn and find an agent. As a reader you can scout your new favourite authors and become personal friends with them. Roleplayers have complete control over their own adventures and can find some idea here that normally wouldn't be thought of. Agents can find prospective new blood in the writing world.

What else does Writersco offer?
Writersco has a lot of features, many of them the same as Elftown. As well as those you're familiar with, Writersco has a new system for uploading writings.
Writersco is set up so members can upload work to the Writings Area, a place specifically for original writings to be displayed. Each member gets a Writing Area and complete control over it: there they can put up poems, short stories or even novels.
The wiki pages are still there so you can create contests or information pages. Fan-Fiction is only allowed on wiki pages with proper copyright notices.

Writersco also allows users the option to Rate the writings so members (and non-members if the author allows it) can give their opinions

I have unanswered questions!
Please comment below or message one of the contacts, we'll be more than happy to help.

2006-06-12 [ArchangelGabriel]: Is it just me or is writersco not working?

2006-06-12 [font]: It should be up again shortly - I just had to redirect the doamin to a new ip

2006-11-06 [crowdel]: short story duelists is here i implore every writer to join

2008-09-16 [Valient Tragedies]: Fixed up :)

2009-07-01 [pixish]: this page is out of date in regards to information

2009-07-01 [iippo]: Update it then *pokes* :P

2009-07-01 [pixish]: I have no idea about what is going on at writersco now :P It looks totally different and you can't log in with your old username and password

2009-07-01 [Artsieladie]: From Eleanor Gang on Facebook:

New Website!
To members of WritersCo on Facebook

WritersCo has a brand, spanking new website, thanks to Alan Lawson (font) and his unnamed brother (the IT guy). The old site has been shut down. If you didn't get your writings off there, Alan is working on getting a link from Hedda. I wasn't able to offload some of my stuff, and I wouldn't mind accessing it as well.

The new website has the same url as the old,

You will have to rejoin, so please head on over there and log in.

Thanks muchly,


I became the 10th member on the new site, but I think I made a mistake and mistyped my email, because I didn't get one when you sign up. I've emailed Alan about it, but I'm hoping his email hasn't changed. I, too, need to get my stuff. :P

2009-07-01 [Kaimee]: A headsup would have been nice :P I was participating in contests damnit! :P

2009-07-01 [Linderel]: Yes, a heads-up would indeed have been nice. While most of my stuff there was already in other places as well, that was not the case with some of my contest entries. >_<

2009-07-01 [Kaimee]: Yeah, I have no other copy of them either. Oh well, Alan is theoretically working on getting a link or some such from Hedda, hopefully that works out ok? I'm still cranky about those contests :P

2009-07-01 [Changer]: Hopefully is right. There goes my stuff as well^-^

2009-07-01 [SilverFire]: is where the old site now is, and all your old writing is still accessible there.

2009-07-02 [Linderel]: This is all just a big WTF, oi.

2009-07-02 [font]: Hey everyone. I tried to give as much notice as possible to everyone on The writersCo community by shoutbox, wikis, news posts and the alarm. Sadly it wasn't enough time for everyone, so I apologise for that. I had asked Hedda on MSN to link another one of my domains to the location where writersco was saved on the Linkmeet domain - but he ignored that. Sorry.

2009-12-18 [Kaimee]: Hiya guys, just a heads up, I didn't realise that was still up and functioning just as it used to, so some of you may not have known either! :)
It's the same old heddate style site, your writings are all still there (and will remain there, no time limit) although the site is now not being run as it used to.
As all the crew have shifted over to the 'new' writersco, writersco.heddate wont have people running the old featured writings, official contests, etc etc. It also doesn't currently have active mods.
Feel free to continue using it if you want though, I kinda like the old heddate one and I can't be bothered migrating all my writing, so I think I'll just stick around there.

2010-08-15 [Kiddalee]: Both communities have become very little. Maybe we can come here without being lost in the visual art.

2010-08-16 [Kaimee]: Hmm? What do you mean? :)

2010-08-17 [Kiddalee]: Maybe old-Writersco users should just create a wiki section in Elftown and hang around Elftown's writing forum. Elftown is no longer so crowded that we'll be ignored. Though I don't think we should retain the name "Writersco" if we do come here.

2010-08-17 [Linderel]: Writers do have more of a foothold already, I'd say. For example, Featured Story has been established. We don't need our own section. Why make an unnecessary separation?

2010-08-18 [Kaimee]: Precisely :) If people want to keep using the Writings upload sections on Writersco.. great! Maybe someday it'll be more active again. Otherwise, as [Linderel] said, there are already plenty of writers here on Elftown, and there are already some great places for them to get their work out there :)
