 The Writer'​s Forum is one of the forums with the longest lineage in AH.com history. It has existed, with virtually little to no name changes, since the days of the [[Old Board]]. Over more than a decade (and pushing nearly fourteen to fifteen years now, by extension), it has produced an enormous mount of varied original fiction, created by the board'​s many talented authors. The Writer'​s Forum is one of the forums with the longest lineage in AH.com history.

-Unlike the more strictly alternate history and [[alternate history:​timeline]]-writing focused [['​Before 1900' forum]] or [['​After 1900' forum]], the Writer'​s Forum offers AH.com members the option to focus on stories outside of the alternate history genre. Therefore, the forum contains many a piece of historical fiction, science fiction, fantasy fiction, adventure fiction, and so on, and so on... (The [[Future History forum]] and [[asb forum|Alien Space Bats forum]] also allow for science-fictional or magical/​implausible works of various lenghth.)+Unlike the more strictly alternate history and [[alternate history:​timeline]]-writing focused [['​Before 1900' forum]] or [['​After 1900' forum]], the Writer'​s Forum offers AH.com members the option to focus on [[stories:​stories|stories]] not only within, but also outside of the alternate history genre.

 On the [[New Board]], the forum has a bit of a reputation for being one of the least frequented, as it gets relatively small traffic compared to the other forums (even other lower-traffic forums, such as [[Books and Media forum]] and [[Maps and Graphics forum]]. This fact [[running jokes|tends to be remarked upon from time to time]], though it's affectionate,​ rather than dismissive. Many people also enjoy the more laid-back and "quiet teahouse"​ nature of the Writer'​s Forum. However, since the late 2010s, the forum has seen something of a resurgence in interest by AH.commers. Also, some of the writing-based discussions previously occuring in the Non-political Chat forum have been moved to the Writer'​s Forum, increasing the number of its regular visitors. ​ On the [[New Board]], the forum has a bit of a reputation for being one of the least frequented, as it gets relatively small traffic compared to the other forums (even other lower-traffic forums, such as [[Books and Media forum]] and [[Maps and Graphics forum]].
