Hello and welcome to WriteInWinter, the group for all writers who draw inspiration from the chilly winter months! Please read the guidelines below before submitting to the group and we wish you happy writing!
There will periodically be prompts offered in the form of journal/blog posts as well as prize contests and opportunities for meaningful critiques.
~All member request are automatically approved, but administration retains the right to remove you from the group at any time due to multiple infringements of the guidelines, harassment or other members, or generally socially unacceptable behavior.
~While all art is beautiful, this group is meant for writers to submit their work. If you are an artist of another medium, we we encourage you to join the group in order to be inspired by our periodic prompts and beautiful member created writings, however we ask that you submit your artwork elsewhere.
~Our group is dedicated to writing with a focus on winter. This means your work must have at least something to do with winter. If the idea of winter seems vague within the piece, we may kindly ask you to explain how it relates or we may ask you remove your piece from the group.
~In order to encourage writers to only submit their best, polished writing to the group, we only allow one automatically approved submission a day to all folders aside from the featured folder. Art submitted to the featured folder is subject to vote and only two submissions a month can be made.
TO BE CONSIDERED FOR FEATURED:
~Art submitted to the featured folder will be the best of the best and is subject to vote by administration.
~This work must be finished (no half finished pieces, broken phrases, or excessive grammatical errors which interfere with understanding.)
~Only two submissions a month may be made. This applies to pieces which have been rejected as well.
~The subject area must be heavily and obviously influenced by winter. While writing submitted to every other folder must only contain a mention, the literature submitted to this folder must be obviously influenced by winter throughout and exemplify the concept of a 'winter writer.'
