| About Us:|
It is the goal of Inspiring Words to motivate writers of all ages to put pen to paper - or fingers to keyboard as the case may be. We will also accept any and all forms of writing not written from the biweekly prompts offered.
Submissions must be literature.
Submissions must be in English as we don't have the capacity to analyze submissions which are not.
All work you submit must be your own.
Fan fiction is allowed.
Please make certain you submit your pieces to the correct folder.
Please treat each other with respect. If you have any issues with something or someone, please note one of the administrators and we'll deal with it right away.
Prompts are given biweekly.
Prompts are merely the means of inspiration. If you don't write on the exact theme given but the word, quote, photo, or song gave you an idea for something to put down, still please submit it to the prompt folder.
It doesn't matter what genre your prompt-piece is as long as it follows our guidelines.
If you have suggestions for prompts, message us or post a comment in one of the prompts blog posts.
Critiques are given by Inspiring Writers' staff members.
If you have a piece you would like to be critiqued, please submit it to the "To Be Critiqued" folder.
It doesn't matter what genre your piece is as long as it follows our guidelines.
Critiques are meant to build up, not tear down.
You piece may not be critiqued for a while, but be patient. We have other commitments as well.
Contests will be held (Hopefully) every month.
Contests will usually be prompts on things such as: photos, quotes, abstracts, one-liners, and phrases.
Any member can participate in our contests and any genre is acceptable as long as it follows our guidelines.
A new folder will be created for each contest as it comes. After each contest is over, the pieces will be moved to genre-specific folders. However, the winning piece (or pieces) will be featured here - and perhaps elsewhere if such prizes are donated.
If you, or someone you know, is interested in donating prizes for imminent contests, we would be most grateful.
Favorites are usually suggested by staff members, but we'd love for you to suggest pieces you enjoy.
You may not suggest one of your own pieces as a favorite.
If you have any problem with a piece in our folder, please let us know.
If you have any questions, please send us a note.
