Your Writing

You’re free to write whatever you want in your novel: any subject, any characters, and any language. You are under no obligation to show it to anyone, including us (see more about scrambling in our Terms and Conditions), or even talk about what you’re writing about.

You’re free to post excerpts of your work, but please remember that your postings, even on your profile page, will appear in public searches. Posts also must observe our Terms and Conditions, which prohibit sexually explicit content. If you want to share your sexually explicit fiction, we encourage you to post that writing offsite and include a link to it in your profile.



Content that violates copyright may be removed at any time. If you have found material on our site that violates your copyright, please contact us immediately with the information and we will give it our full attention.


Cabin and Profile Content

While Camp is designed for users 13 and over, please keep in mind that people of all ages have differing sensibilities. We ask that you keep this in mind while creating your profile and interacting with other campers.

Only images considered “safe for all ages” are appropriate for your author picture. If you upload a picture that contains inappropriate content, we’ll remove the picture and send you a warning. If we find you doing it again, we’ll terminate your account. This includes hyperlinks to graphic images.

Please keep chatter in your cabin similarly all-ages friendly. In general, rules of polite public interaction should apply online, too.


In Conclusion

We have a unique and amazing community at The humor, compassion, and kindness on the site is what makes it such a great place to be every year.

Maintaining that convivial atmosphere depends on the behavior and attitude of our members. If you cannot abide by the above guidelines, this is not the right site for you.
