FictionPress is a website intended to allow authors to showcase literary works and receive feedback from other users in the form of reviews. Registration is free of charge and at the current time the website has over half a million registered users.
The website was originally the "original fiction" section of FanFiction.Net , but it branched off into its own site, evolving from a purely fanfiction media to a site embracing all forms. According to the numbers given on the site itself there is far more poetry on Fictionpress than original fiction.
Users are given a free biography page where they may include any personal or background information about themselves. Links to all their published poetry/prose are also present in this bio page. Other links on each user's bio page include their own "Favorite Stories" section and a "Favorite Authors" section which users can use to express a preference for particular writen pieces or authors.
