WE WANT YOU!
...to join the Grendelmen!
We are an online sci-fi/fantasy writers' group looking for new recruits. If you enjoy speculative fiction and like to write, you could be one of us. (The few, the proud, the Star Marines.) We accept all points of view, and even welcome those that only want to read the other stories.
Here's how it works. Every week, we read someone's story and then write them and tell them what we think about it. The whole point of this group is peer review, so you can't submit a story to the group until you have done some critiquing. So if you want to get involved right away, follow these simple steps:
- Read the portion of the most recent stories that are posted to the web. The most recent stories are found on the Grendelmen Home page in chronological order, most recent at the top.
- Contact the authors (or the clearinghouse) to obtain the remainder of the stories.
- Read each story, critique them, and send your reviews to the authors.
- If you have a story, send it to the clearinghouse and wait for your turn. (It shouldn't be too long.) You can submit your story at any time, but it will not be sent out to the group until you have read and reviewed the last two stories posted.
- Provide a short biographical sketch to be posted to the website. (gif images of you are welcome)
- Keep reading and writing!
So get in touch with us and send in a story. It doesn't have to be new. It doesn't have to be long. It doesn't even have to be any good (although one hopes...). But it ABSOLUTELY MUST involve aliens, elfs, ghosts, laser pistols, magic swords, singing trees, rocket ships, theoretical physics, leather-wearing loners driving muscle cars through the ruins of post-apocalyptic earth, computers gone mad, wizards gone sane, people with tails, or men who love robots and the women who love them. You get the idea.
Membership is voluntary. Any time you wish to leave the group, you may do so (although we hope that we have an environment where all will feel welcome). Membership is also a privilege. In the extremely unlikely event that it is thought prudent to revoke the membership of a particular person, this can be accomplished by a majority vote of the officers (although we hope that this never becomes necessary).
