There are two seperate writing forums.
One, the Short Story
forum, is open to all members. If any member of ATS wants to write
a story there, they can do so.
The second, Collaborative Writing
, is reserved for those who have Writer status and its
function is for group efforts. The reason why only those with the writer status being allowed to post there is so that a collaborative story, such as
this Space opera
can carry on without interruption.
It is perfectly fine to ask
for the writer status, but it is only given if myself or another moderator responsible for that restricted forum
feels secure that there would be no disruption to ongoing collaborations. To just jump in and post to a thread like the Space Opera without first
being introduced and vetted by the participants would
To want writer status but not wish to participate in collaborative efforts would be a useless enterprise since you already have the Short stories
forum at your disposal.
Hope that helps.
