My favorite forum is the Writer's Corner. There's a ton to figure out when you want to get published or self-publish, and it's invaluable to have a group that has done it already.

By way of improvement, I'd love to see some more engagement for the section. For example, MR could sponsor a quarterly short story competition. Not only would you tap this great concentration of talent, but you might even tease more readers into the writer's pool -- the more the merrier. To channel a favorite movie, Ratatouille, a bit, everyone can write, and a competition with a low barrier to entry (short story, friendly community judging) might bring new writers into the Corner.

No need for prizes or anything, by sponsorship I just mean assemble some judges, choose a theme each quarter, set up the x best stories for voting and feature the winner's story. It would be a nice community-building program.
