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 month into the critique folder?
A: We only accept 1 per month 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.

A: Absolutely. And you may write as many as you wish. Or none.

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.

A: As of July 1 2014, the Monthly Challenge will be restarted, led by Paperback-Astronaut. 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.

Time is a cruel mistress; time flies when you're having fun, time slows when you are suffering. Your time on this plane of existence is limited. Don't be late for the party! And that essay you might have been procrastinating on is due in so little time. Time is precious, time is money.
But is time just a concept? What if time is all an illusion? Just a lucid dream?
Think about that. Let us write all about the concept of time this week, anything relating to the topic of time. Time to write, time to learn.

Take your sweet time,

PS. I'm going back to writing up Theme of the Week on Mondays rather than Sundays.

Im new to this group and I've been working on this story for a long time. At the moment I have 5 chapters but I have to translate all of them so It'll take a long time for me to do it. I'd love to hear your most honest opinions about my first chapter. :)
