Don't you love visiting a site filled with ads and spam? Neither do we! We work hard to keep ads to a minimum on our community. Our general rule is that ads are not permitted in the discussion forums. This includes any kind of plugs, promotion, critique requests, and links to your work, site, or services. The only exceptions are:
- A new member may post a subtle link to their work (or website) when introducing themselves in the Meets & Greets section. You may mention your work in the course of introducing yourself, but please be sure your post doesn't read like an advertisement.
- Established site members may post announcements for their new books, promotions, or other publishing credits in the Publications and Plugs section.
- If you're looking to meet a partner for collaboration or help with a project, or wish to offer your help to other members, you can post a notice in our Project Connections section.
- Publishers and other content providers are encouraged to post information and links regarding their organization's writing opportunities in the Writing Markets, Jobs, and Opportunities section.
