11.0 On-line groups - Listserv (misc.writing Writing FAQ)

11.4 Listserv: The Fiction Writers Workshop
An electronic writers' workshop is being run as a listserv list
called
the Fiction Writers Workshop and based at Penn State University, with
separate
lists for fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and novels. The list owner is Rheal
Nadeau. Information about the list is obtained by sending the message:

SUBSCRIBE FICTION <yourfirstname> <yourlastname>

to listserv@psuvm.psu.edu

11.5 Listserv: Writer's Workshop

Topics: "Although started for discussion of writing,
submissions, critiques, various mind-joggers, and exercises
also are passed among the participants. All postings are
archived and available to participants."

Subscription: The workshop is self-serve: send email to
<listserv@vm1.nodak.edu> (or <listserv@ndsuvm1.bitnet>) with the message:

SUBSCRIBE WRITERS <yourfirstname> <yourlastname>

11.6 Listserv: DOROTHY-L, for mystery fans and writers

11.7 Listserv: TECHWR-L, for technical writers

Technical writing -- or, more broadly, "technical
communication" -- as one of the specialized branches of the
writing profession, has its own mailing list, which is carried on some
systems
as the newsgroup
bit.listserv.techwr-l

If that newsgroup does not exist at your site, you can subscribe by
sending a message to

LISTSERV@VM1.UCC.OKSTATE.EDU

Leave the subject line *blank*, and include on the first line of
the
message:

SUB TECHWR-L your_first_name your_last_name

For example:

SUB TECHWR-L Kate Vincent
The list is unmoderated and is available in either digest or
mail form. [This information is taken from the longer
"Information from TECHWR-L Listowner" posted periodically to
the list by owner Eric Ray (ejray@okway.okstate.edu).]
