Many, if not all, of you were Inkies. Well, you still are an Inkie. Just because Inkpop.com itself no longer exists doesn't mean you aren't an Inkie.
But since Inkpop is gone, you might be looking for some new writing sites to turn to. You've probably heard of these, but I'm going to highlight the pros and cons of each, to help you decide which, if any, are right for you.
Pros: Seemingly active forums. Copy-and-paste disabled. Lots of projects to read. Many Inkies are over there. There is a mobile app.
Cons: I've seen very little in the way of in-depth reviews. No publication opportunities.
Pros: Active forums. Lots of projects. Many, many users. Many Inkies can be found. There are writing contests and opportunities to win prizes.
Cons: Copy-and-paste not disabled (but the disabling is in the works, apparently). No publication opportunities. Again, I've seen very few Inkpop-quality reviews. The forums are incredibly full of angst, and have more trolls than I ever saw on Inkpop. No mobile app or site.
Pros: Lots of projects to read. Focus on short stories, short nonfiction, and poetry. Publication opportunities. Visual art also accepted.
Cons: Seemingly inactive forums. Not as much focus on novel-length work (though this could also be a pro, depending on what you're into). No in-depth reviews. Copy-and-paste not disabled.
Pros: In-depth reviews. Constructive criticism galore. They refer to themselves as "literary bootcamp".
Cons: Users are required to critique. Application required. No publication opportunities.
The cons are not reasons to avoid the site. They are not necessarily bad things. They are just a way to compare writing sites to help you find a match.
If you didn't know already, there is a Facebook group for Inkies. It's right here.
What do you think? Are you getting involved in other writing sites? Anything else that we should look into?
