This is a friendly reminder to all the writers who post work here to think carefully about the proper category and rating for your piece — and even whether it belongs on this site at all — before submitting it.

• If a story or poem is primarily about sex or includes detailed descriptions of sex, it would be considered erotica, which is outside the purview of StoriesSpace, and will not be published here.

• Pieces about child abuse, even if the terms are couched, need at least a 13+ rating. Please remember that G means both language and content are appropriate for children.

Thank you!

Writers, PLEASE read our guidelines before submitting.

Story Submission Guidelines wrote:

• The copyright to stories (and accompanying photos) must be owned by the member uploading them.

• Please ensure submissions fit into the categories found on the home page. While we accept stories featuring sex scenes, we’ve chosen not to include an erotica category for submissions where the entire focus is on sex.

• Any characters engaging in sexual situations must be aged sixteen and over.

• Stories should be under 10,000 words in length, with any longer works broken down and submitted in chapters.

• Submissions for all categories other than Musings, Poetry, Songs and Flash Fiction must be a minimum of 3000 characters. (Approximately six hundred words).

• The Musings category is intended for submissions that ponder the bigger questions in life. It’s not a category for rants or a place to take private disputes public.

• Scenes where child abuse or sexual abuse are described in detail are not permitted. If a character endured either in their past, mentioning it is okay but we don’t accept stories featuring lengthy scenes revolving around the abuse.

• Submissions that contain racist remarks, hate speech or are disrespectful toward others’ religious beliefs, aren’t permitted.

• If your story or poem is more likely to upset or offend rather than entertain, please refrain from submitting it to this site.

Story Submission Tips

Categories — Since many stories fit into multiple categories, we recognize that it might be difficult to choose the correct one. Please select what you think is the most appropriate, but remember that we reserve the right to move any story into a different category if we see fit.

Formatting — A story may be rejected for improper formatting (hard returns at the end of each line, no blank space between paragraphs, etc.). It is the writer's responsibility to make sure the submission is formatted according to our specifications; we will not publish stories that are improperly formatted.

Grammar — Proper grammar is essential. Please use the pull-down menus in the highly useful Guide to Grammar & Writing to learn about the specific items that may be troubling you. Some of the more common mistakes involve sentence fragments, run-on sentences, subject-verb agreement and tense shifts.

One-Liner — The one-liner (a short sentence describing the story) is not required. If included, it should pertain to the story.

Punctuation — Stories must include correct punctuation. Please refer to our User Friendly Guide to Punctuation, along with any other resource a moderator provides you, if you have questions. When using quotation marks, either American or British punctuation is acceptable, but it should be consistent throughout the story.

Spelling — Both American English and British English are acceptable.

Story Length — Stories in most categories should be between 600 and 10,000 words. A few categories allow a lower word count than our standard minimum; in all cases, however, submissions must be at least 20 words. Story verifiers may, at their discretion, either verify or return stories of slightly more than 10,000 words. Stories longer than 10,500 words will be removed with a request they either be trimmed to 10,000 words or submitted as chapters.

Tags — Tags are required. They should always relate to the story and be spelled correctly.

Titles — Please adhere to the following standards: Titles should be in Title Case, not in ALL CAPS; do not place a period (full stop) at the end of the title; do not use any emoticons in the title; and check the spelling. "Untitled" is not an acceptable title. In addition, do not use acronyms in titles.
