Any person may submit an original work of fiction, a review, an interview, or essay for display on the website. Such submissions are made with the intent of inviting constructive criticism of the work from the public. We ask all or members to be fair and open-minded when responding. All submissions must meet a minimum standard of quality and competence. All of the submitted information may be published except for your real name and email address. If you write under your real name, put that in for your pen name. Location may be city, state, province, prefecture, country, etc. We do not need your exact address. Websites may be links to your Goodreads profile, books you have written, a personal website, blog, or social media accounts. Open the page or account in a browser window and copy and paste the address. Links will be added with your biography at the end of the post. Due to problems with spam and the potential for abuse we do not allow links to essay or freelance writing services.
