Hi u/Paul6334, this submission has been removed.

Direct prompt replies must be good-faith attempts at new stories or poems

  • Fill-in-the-blank: Responses must be at least 30 words. This is essentially a fill-in-the-blank, or you asked a question likely to generate a simple answer. Prompts should encourage a story or poem.

    Prompts will be removed if there's a high possibility for rule breaking responses (rule 7)

No explicitly sexual responses, hate speech, or other harmful content

  • Politics: We are not currently allowing political prompts (see rule #7) as the aim of the sub is to encourage people to write and political prompts are leading to arguments instead of stories.

Hi u/kingkalamariXD, this submission has been removed.

No explicitly sexual responses, hate speech, or other harmful content

  • We feel that asking users to write about suicide is harmful. It can be hard to tell if someone's writing fiction or making a cry for help. In the event there's any truth behind this for you or someone you know, we recommend checking out /r/suicidewatch or /r/depression.

Hi u/commandercody95, this submission has been removed.

Prompt users in the title, but don't play writing games or commission stories

  • Too Detailed: Your post includes too many details to be considered a prompt. It has become a story commission, which is not allowed. Prompts are meant to inspire users to write their own work, not write something for you.
