By submitting to the community blog, you agree to the following:
You will be a real person. No pseudonyms or fake celebrity sightings here. If you're actually Stephen King, the bestselling author, writing the latest prompt, you might want to include a video so we're convinced.
You will write on the day's prompt within the time frame given. On rare occasions the magazine might issue a call for longer or more polished works based on prompts, but for now you have 24 hours (48 for the weekend prompts) to write. Go for creativity and story, not for perfection or length.
You will keep it short. No points for epic works.
You will not write hateful or excessively vulgar, profane, or sexually explicit language. Find somewhere else to post shit like that.
You will submit only original, unpublished works written because of the storypraxis experiment. If later you take your piece and publish it somewhere else or anything, feel free to thank storypraxis for having a small hand in inspiring your work of genius.
How to post to the Storypraxis Community Blog:
Posting to the community blog is done by email either through the link found at the daily prompt or by emailing the blog directly. Assuming the prompt is "banana hands" and your name is Andy Meisenheimer, the subject line should look exactly like this:
banana hands by Andy Meisenheimer ((tag: Andy Meisenheimer, banana hands))
The body of the email should be free from signatures, stationery, images, audioclips, and anything but good ol' text. Below your creative writing in the body of the email you may include a one or two line author bio, in italics if you want to be fancy. Also, take just a brief moment at the end of your writing to read through and proofread your work. Once it's live, your only hope of editorial control is contacting us and begging us to help.
Personal web-based email clients like gmail work best with this system—corporate email addresses and desktop email clients like Outlook, not so much. Posts will be moderated before they are posted to make sure that these guidelines are adhered to, so if your post does not go live, you know something went wrong.
All community blog posts will be considered for the storypraxis magazine, a collection of our editorial staff's favorite posts.
Posts throughout the site are the sole property of their respective authors. Storypraxis is not responsible for nor do we claim any right to any work posted herein except the stuff we wrote ourselves.
