Next

Next exists to support new writers by giving them a public platform to publish their work for free. This gains them wider exposure than just sharing with their friends. Publishing a work for all to see and to hear the comments, good and bad, is an experience all writers need. One of the hardest things for a new writer is to get people unknown to them to read their work and offer critical review and comment. The gap between writing for friends or English class and getting published is large. Next is a stepping stone for those taking that path. Next has author journals and forums so that our authors and readers may interact and hopefully create a community devoted to literature and aspiring writers. It is my hope that these features will be the foundation of a community of writers and readers.
