What is the best workshop on-line for SF stories? I mostly write novelet length SF stories, usually with a hard SF element. I like to think my stories are pretty good, but the magazine people don't seem to agree. So I guess the only thing to do is put them out to an audience of other writers for critique.
All comments appreciated.

Well, I put my stuff up at Milk of Medusa. Don't mind the name, none of us are sure just what exactly it's supposed to mean.

Good lord! Talk about a hacked up design. Nothing personal, but lots of 404s and i only found the forums by clicking randomly on any/everything.
i'll check out the forum though!

If you have any professional sales, you can apply to get into Codex at www.codexwriters.com
All your stories will be critiqued by other professional writers who have at least one pro sale.

I guess I'll do the obligatory plug for critters -- www.critters.org. It is a well-run workshop, and even though you may have to wait a little until your stuff gets critiqued, I think it's a worthwhile enterprise.

And I will do the obligatory plug for OWW. US$49 a year, and worth it, IMO. Also includes an active mailing list, staff to help solve problems, and occasional special stuff. For example, we recently did a two week on-line plotting workshop led by James van Pelt, that was very good. I've subscribed to OWW for the last year, and I'm re-upping.

The Shocklines Writers Group is starting up again. I was involved in this group the first go-round. It was a great group of pros and semi-pros, who gave some excellent advice.
