We are excited to launch a new ongoing Gems event.  Our first Gems prompt is “Reflections”.
Reflections occur in the water, in the mirror, and in our minds, and we can learn from all of these.  Our current Gems prompts a story which can explore the different reflections that inspire your creative imagination!
We invite you to explore new ideas and new forms of expression as you write a story of 350 words or less.
We listened to your requests, and created a new Gems event with all the features you writers have come to enjoy.  
Gems is not a contest.  Every submission that passes our basic rules will be published. If you find errors, you can correct them and resend. Other writers may help you solidify your ideas, fix errors, or make suggestions.
Ensure your submission follows these rules:
  • Correct length (350 words or less)
  • Correct spelling and grammar
  • Family-friendly content
Be sure and include a reference to reflections!

Sharing a Post

Why do my friends need to SignIn to read the post I shared?

Actually, this is a voting security feature. During public voting, only club members can read posts submitted for that contest. Since anyone reading the story is able to vote (click the Like button), we reserve these capabilities to members who SignIn. Before we implemented this security feature, people were voting multiple times and making the public voting process unfair and out of balance. To fix this, our staff finally decided to allow only members who SignIn to read the stories. Membership is free and easy, and ensures our club is safe, secure, and family-friendly!
