sapphire: If there is, I don't know how, not without taking it away from every board. It shows up every time I update something. Sorry. It should go away on its own, soon.

A Mask Among Many: Okay, is there any way to remove the 'new' icon from the Staff Room? (I don't know why, but it's reeeeally annoying me.) Thanks!

sapphire: Normally I'd say yes, Mask, but in this case there wouldn't be much point. We didn't get any other entries. I'd love to read it, though, if you post it!

A Mask Among Many: Hey, I wrote something for the summer contest, but was unable to email it as the 31st was my birthday, and I was occupied pretty much all day. Is there any way I could submit it late?

Welcome to The Echo: A Writing Forum!
The Echo is a place for writers. If you love setting pen to paper or placing your fingers on a keyboard with a blank page in front of you, letting another life come into being, you'll find others like you here.
Whether you write prose or poetry, short or long, with a career in mind or just for fun, we're here to help each other. Post your work for others to read and critique, and read what others have to offer. In The Echo, you'll find friendly advice to help you become a better writer, and you'll help others develop, too.
Founded on August 23, 2007, The Echo is for everyone who writes. Although we're a small and tight-nit community, we always welcome new members who love writing just as much as we do.
"A writer is a person who cares what words mean, what they say, how they say it. Writers know words are their way towards truth and freedom, and so they use them with care, with thought, with fear, with delight. By using words well they strengthen their souls. Story-tellers and poets spend their lives learning that skill and art of using words well. And their words make the souls of their readers stronger, brighter, deeper."
Ursula K. Le Guin
