Right now, there is a relaunch of "The Workshop" in process - the main idea is to add an extra group: "The Hidden Workshop", which will be private, so that texts can be added and 'workshopped' without having to put them openly online.
The Hidden Group is functioning already, and it looks like both workshop groups now start to move already.
I will officially announce the relaunched Workshop at the start of December, if you want to join the place now already, you are welcome ~ just leave a note in the "Doormat" thread of "The Workshop", and you will receive an invite.

PS: i will be in real life transit this week (Spain!), back end of November - Steve Wing and Susan Gibb are co-admins of the workshop, and will make sure that the door stays open.
If you have published a text in Fictionaut and want some constructive feedback, or feel the text still isn't all fitting yet, then try The Workshop:
-> Add your text to this group (to do that, go to your text, then click on the “Group it” button above the title.) (note: your text will still be visible in the regular story-listing)
-> As a starter for feedback, add a comment with a note on the text/ or with specific questions.
-> Consider giving some feedback in return, to keep the workshop moving.
NOTE: there also is a "HIDDEN" Workshop. If you are working on a story or a poem, and want some feedback, but don't want your text to be visible for everyone already, then leave a note in the "Doormat" thread, and you will receive an invite for "The Hidden Workshop".
