Hello everyone!

A Nerdfighter Story Club has been born out of awesome. It is still young though. I did not come up with it but had the great opportunity to stumble upon it.

The Nerdfighter Story Club is just what it sounds like, a place where Nerdfighters can share their stories- whether it be prose, a writing exercise excerpt or fanfiction - or poems and just about anything using the written word.

Where is this Nerdfighter Story Club located? And where can I submit work?
:bulletred:Reddit:The main hub is on Reddit. You should check the Reddit outbecause it has all the information  about the Club plus it's where it all started.

Weekly challenges are also hosted here.  

:bulletyellow: Tumblr: The tumblr is mostly used for reblogging stories. You can submit stories on it. The tag #nerdfighterstoryclub is being tracked and we will reblog your work. You can ask on tumblr if you wish to run the blog.

:bulletyellow: Google Drive : You can submit your stories to the Google Drive and we can post it on tumblr and reddit.

:bulletgreen: Deviantart: Last but not least it's here on Deviantart! I'm thinking of creating a folder for the Nerdfighter Story Club and featuring stories every week or so. Also posting it on tumblr and Reddit. I'm working the chinks out so any input from you guys will be appreciated.

Rules and Suggestions(taken from the Reddit site)

Rules are bolded, suggestions are in plain text.

:bulletwhite:Submit replies to prompts/challenges as their own posts, i.e. not in the comments. We want to see it! You can put which prompt you used or which challenge you're responding to in the title of the post.
:bulletwhite:If you'd hesitate at all to show your work to a child, tag it with [NSFW] for mature content in the title of the post.
:bulletwhite:If a story contains potential triggers, include appropriate warnings in the title.
:bulletwhite:Keep it tasteful. Stories with gratuitous explicit content may be taken down by the moderators.
:bulletwhite:Submit individual chapters of multi-chapter works as new posts so that people know you've updated a story. From the previous chapter please link to the next chapter once it goes up, and also the first chapter so that new readers can catch up.
:bulletwhite:If you think your work fits into a particular genre, please put it in the title (e.g. [Drama] The Ugly Porcupine) or in the post itself. The same goes for the type of writing it is (e.g. [Free writing] or [Poem] or [Novella] etc.)

For fanfiction:
:bulletwhite:Include [Fanfic] in the title.
:bulletwhite:Include a disclaimer.
:bulletwhite:No spoilers in the title.
:bulletwhite:Include the fandom in the title.
:bulletwhite:Include spoiler warnings at the top of the body of the post.

Again any suggestions/ideas are appreciated. The Club is still in its infancy so there's a bunch of stuff to work out.

So whatcha waiting for? Get your writing face on and write, write, write!

I've recently had someone ask me what dftba means. It was amazing to be able to share the meaning of where dftba came from

So Hanko De Mayo is coming up, right? Does anybody know what we're doing yet?

Nope but if you would like to organize anything or submit a journal post or whatever you're more than welcome to! Just keep in contact with me if you decide to do something like that because I'll forget to ask you about it again :)

If I wanted to submit art, how much time would it take to be approved or denied?
Takkaia Featured By Owner Oct 25, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It depends on what folder you submit to. Some folder accept right away, others need to be approved my a moderator. I'm sorry I've been really inactive... it takes me a while to remember to get to checking group messages, and I can't get any other co-founders because the founder hasn't given me founder privileges yet, even though she said she would. Anyway, if you note me after you submit something, I will get to it right away instead of forgetting about it... :)

Okay, thank you

Hopefully within a week, as it will probably expire after that, depending on our settings. Give it a go, and if it expires, we'll let you know, but it is unlikely. :)
lizzyc7 Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Alright, thank you :)
MissBeastie Featured By Owner Oct 9, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Sure thing!
