I seem to say this a lot...The Story Center is back under construction. Again. I'm rebuilding the forums, moving to YAF, adding blogs and constructing a new story center plugin.
No idea when any of it will be done. Forums should be soon (next month). Followed by the blogs, which I will open to all registered writers to use for free. Last, but not least, will be the actual story center plugin that will allow writers to upload their work into the public domain.
For those who want critiquing off the public domain I am offering private group forums, with no public access and secure uploads. There is no automated system to setup a private group right now, but I'll gladly set one up for anyone who is interested.
