I disagree with the perception that free advice is often regarded as not valuable. For those of us keenly interested in writing and who invest most of our time now that we're retired to our writing but have to live on a fixed income value very highly any advice people care to offer. Because of our income status we simply cannot afford $25/month to belong to an exclusive circle of writers regardless of what the benefits may be. It's about time people recognized that there is great talent out there that may never be discovered or appreciated because some writers cannot afford the fees, etc needed to break through the "paper ceiling."
