Access the private messaging feature
Post polls for the community

Apply to be a FWU Community Moderator
The Freelance With Us forum is a community designed to help writers support one another, ask questions, and offer advice. The site and forum are intended to provide resources to writers and to offer help in navigating an occasionally overwhelming freelance writing career.
With that in mind, we aim to provide a welcoming environment for writers of all levels. Discussions may include controversial topics, but we ask that you remember to discuss the topic, not the poster.
Personal attacks, name calling, hate speech, insulting language and overtly offensive posts will not be tolerated, and may result in your permanent removal from the forum.
Members join our community at different places in their freelancing career and one of our goals is to welcome and educate new members. Please do so with respect for other freelancers.
Please keep conversations civil and on topic, and respect the diversity of the FWU community.
Advertising and solicitation
We understand that you may want to share your own work, whether this be your personal blog or a book you’ve written. All in due time! Each of our members will begin at the Reader level, and encouraged to contribute meaningful, helpful posts to the site. Our moderators will then grant you access to other features, such as the addition of a signature to your posts or the ability to send private messages.
Please refrain from soliciting others within your posts. Doing so will result in rejection of your posts by our moderators, and excessive violation may result in removal from the community.
Cursing happens from time to time. We ask that you respect the sensitivities of others, and refrain from excessive use of profanity.
We will not tolerate hate speech in any form. This includes racism, gay or trans bashing, sexism, ableism, religious prejudice, ageism, sizeism and other derogatory remarks based on skin color or background. Engaging in this activity will result in your removal from the forum.
You’re entitled to your opinion. But if you are posting to incite an argument or anger from the community, your post will me rejected and you may be removed from the community.
