Open Calls for Submissions
General Posting Guidelines
All submissions must be directly related to writing and contain enough information to start a discussion on reddit. Low-quality posts, especially those with only a link or title, obvious spam or site promotion, self-acknowledgement, and solicitations to do your work for you are more likely to get removed without warning. Off-topic and promotion may be posted in the Weekly Check-in sticky.
Post all requests for feedback or critique partners in the Weekly Critique sticky. If you’re looking for help with homework, check out homeworkhelp.
Sharing for the sake of sharing is not allowed outside the Weekly Check-in sticky. This includes your own writing (when not seeking feedback and especially when seeking views or sales), personal blogs, publication acceptance or rejection, stories you really like, or humorous images.
Calls for submissions (including posts inquiring about miscellaneous writing work, for pay or not) must include payment information, deadlines, rights requested, and any other relevant information.
Please report any rule-breaking posts, as well as abusive comments or harassment. Civility will be enforced, but spirited discourse can often blur the line between acceptable and unacceptable behavior. Keep general reddiquette in mind.
Moderators may, at their discretion and without warning, remove posts and ban accounts which they consider harmful to the community.
Getting the Most out of writing
–While linked-posts are allowed, a quality self-post would be a summary of the content or a block of quoted content, possibly your own thoughts, and a link to the off-site content. Linked-posts are best for reputable sources and big news items. Self-posts are best for more nuanced and specific aspects of writing-related content as well as discussion-starters.
–This is not a critique-focused subreddit. In addition to the genre-specific subreddits, destructivereaders is a great alternative if you're looking for a workshop-like community.
–While we celebrate publishing discussion, please keep all self-promotion to the Weekly Check-in sticky. Feel free to use your subreddit flair as an advertising space!
–Help keep the subreddit clean and on-topic by using the report feature to bring attention to rule-breaking posts. If you have any questions about these guidelines, please contact the moderators.
