A general interest APA. It is a gathering of people who enjoy writing, and having their writings read by others. Unlike most APAs, Apademic is broken down into three sections. The first section is where the members write about themselves, their lives, and make comments to other members; it is the section that most closely resembles other APAs I have seen. The creative writings of the members (poetry, stories, etc) are collated in the second section. The third section is a round robin story.
