Orimono_Shujin: Even though your question was meant for Allyssa, I'll answer and she will correct me if I'm wrong, as well has provide The Guild Master/Mistress' slant on the topic. The main function of the Writers Review Panel is to determine if a piece meets Planet-Tolkien.com's standards for inclusion in our Fan Writings section. I also believe that they will provide suggestions as to how those pieces, which do not yet make the grade, might be improved. :)
