It is admirable that you've set out to help those of us who would aspire to be writers. I feel you may add some preliminary instruction by directing your readers to an online treasure - The Elements of Style by Strunk & White.
Ask any writer about its value. It is a Writer’s Bible. There is a free copy to be read here: www.bartleby.com...
Hope you enjoy it.

As you know I absolutely support the idea of Writer's Workshop, however after reading a few of the posts, I've noticed that the while the intention is good, the method isn't quite what works best here.
No committees, no special titles, none of that frilly stuff is needed. Anyone with the "Writer" tag should be able to participate in all aspects of this workshop, from suggestions, criticism to participation.
...This should be of course by voluntary basis and We can still have a rotating chair however we don't need a committee. If you need someone to organize this...well you have me.
Don't get tied up with all the rules and planning and formalization, it will not work, just get writing and start the first workshop. We will revist the concept from time to time depending on the response and participation.
