FAQ:

Q: Do you accept comics/manga?
A: Indeed we do! Please submit all comics and manga to the folder titled "Graphic Novels, Comics, Manga."

Q: Do you accept fanfiction?
A: Yes. We even have a folder for it simply titled "Fanfiction"

Q: Do you accept literature in foreign languages?
A: We most certainly do.

Q: Why can we only submit once per week into the Critique folder?
A: We only accept 1 per week because we want our members to limit their submissions to the ones they specifically want critiqued, not just every single piece. And we wish to conserve space.

Q: What is "Theme of the Week"?
A: The Themes are simply one broad idea put out every weekend. It is only to help people with inspiration, or just for fun.

Q: Is "Theme of the Week" a contest?
A: No. It's sole purpose is to help provide inspiration. There are no winners.

Q: Can we submit more than one deviation to "Theme of the Week?
A: Absolutely. And you may write as many as you wish. Or none.

Q: Regarding "Theme of the Week", may we post already existing deviations for the theme?
A: Yes.

Q: Regarding "Theme of the Week", are we supposed to submit them in a specific folder?
A: There is a "Theme of the Week" folder, but you do not have to submit your work there. For example, if you write a poem inspired by a Theme, you may submit it to "Theme of the Week" folder or to the "Poetry Free/Blank Verse" folder. Same goes with any other type of writing.

Q: Is there a word limit?
A: Nope. Make your works as long or short as you please.

Q: Do you accept visual poetry?
A: Poetry is poetry, so yes.

Q: Do you accept mature literature?
A: Yes. We even have a folder for it.

Q: Do you do "Monthly Challenge" anymore?
A: Unfortunately, the admin who ran Monthly Challenge, Paperback-Astronaut, has deactivated his account. With him gone, so is Monthly Challenge.
A Challenge is meant to challenge your skill as a writer, it is meant to push you into doing something you wouldn't originally do. Above all, it is meant to be fun.

No, not the movie, but you can write about that if you want...
From the cold regions of Scandinavia to your kitchen refrigerator, our writing will be frozen solid this week.
Sometimes the peaceful rain is refreshingly cool after a hot season. Sometimes you leave that steak in the freezer too long and it gets frostbitten. Sometimes the blizzard kills you with the cold. Sometimes depression makes one feel nothing but ice. Sometimes love can melt your heart. And sometimes a dish is best served cold. Joy and pain come from the cold.
So get out there and imagine something freezing! Don't forget to wear a sweater.

Stay cool,
Kiarorin

This is such a lovely group, thank you for supporting writers of all kinds. I am sure many people are very happy (including myself) to be allowed to share our work with others who are just as interested in literature as the next.

Question: do you allow purchaseable content? I plan on making (cheap, like 100 pointsish) pdfs covering different writing advice topics like improving dialogue and sentence structure but I do not want to submit where it is unwanted.

We haven't featured that kind of work before (because we've never been asked), but I suppose you could submit your pitch in a journal.

I have a question. I like to write things that go along with the pictures I draw, where I have the picture and text in the description. Is that still allowed to be submitted to the group?

Use the image as a preview, and upload a .pdf or .dox of the text. Then it can be submitted.
People often don't read the descriptions, so accepting a piece that has the text only in the description would make it appear that the image in alone.

I saw that you can only submit once a week for the Critique folder. Is that the same rule for any other folder?
