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 Monday. 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.

Sometimes you just need to wind down from a happy day, or a horrific time period. But maybe you just can't close your eyes, can't let your brain shut down. Can't sleep? Can't wake up? Can you get stuck in the process?
Let's think about the simplicity of sleep, or the complexity of using a metaphor. This can be a blissful and peaceful theme, or a horrific and nightmarish one. What can you do? Everything.

Happy writings,

PS: please excuse my struggle to adapt to a new schedule lately. I need to get my brain together. Anyway, things should be back to normal now.

Hey Everyone. Wanted to spread some love for The Resistance. My series that is on its fifth season finale. Just posted the trailer on here, and you can find it on my page as well. Tell me if you're interested. The first part out of five will be released Sunday, and it is by far my most anticipated finale yet. Hope you all check it out. Enjoy your day!
