New Online Platform For #Writers and Horror #Contest

Hello 2unpub readers. 🙂 There’s a new site on the interwebs for writers. Have you heard about it?

Inkitt: Your Stories Will Love It Here

Inkitt is a new, FREE, online platform for writers to post their stories, get feedback, improve their writing, and take steps towards publishing.

Inkitt is rethinking how fictional stories are shared with the world and published. We believe:

*Great stories with the potential to become blockbusters can come from anyone.

*People can create better stories together.

*Artificial intelligence can make better decisions than human curators.

If that doesn’t give you enough incentive to check ’em out, how about the upcoming horror writing contest?

Contest Details: The “you are in the darkest place in the world” theme can be interpreted literally or figuratively. Inkitt wants writers who will submit their blood-curdlers, spine-tinglers, skin-crawlers, and hair-raisers; writers who will make it their duty to scare and shock their readers; writers who can really take us to the darkest place in the world. Feel you have what it takes? Check out the guidelines and offered prizes here.

  1. Hey, I checked out inkitt and they have no information available (that I could find without actually signing up, anyway) about their terms and conditions. Did you look at those? Because I post on fictionpress and so I get rather regular invitations to join “new and wonderful” writing sites, many of which have some truly horrible terms buried in the stuff no one ever reads. One that I particularly remember looked reasonable until you got down to subsidiary rights — where they took them all. That means that if, by some miracle, one of their users wrote the next 50 Shades (which was published online on a similar site first), the site would have had a claim on the movie. It would make me, personally, very uncomfortable to post my work on a public site without clearly established terms. All they need to do is put a link up with terms and conditions that take all rights to everything posted on their site and claims that users who post have agreed to the terms and you no longer own your work. It could be fought in court, but it would be very expensive.
