I thought it will be a good idea if Hubpages can start a sister page dedicated for people who are passionate about writing short stories and novels. A lot can happen in stories. It is full of imagination and dreams.
HubPages already has a category for short stories and novels, and a whole site called LetterPile for people interested in writing and literature.
There are many other sites where you can write short stories, like Storywrite, where you would not have to pass the same tests.
Do I need to join at LetterPile as new user?
Do they have separate feed over there?
No, it's one of the niche sites that your hubs get moved to if they are good enough. You can't join it.
Of course, the other alternative is to make your own site. Have I mentioned that to you before? Maybe
No, you cannot join LetterPile direct. All you can do is write Hubs for HubPages. Each time you write a new Hub, an editor considers the Hub and decides whether it is good enough for LetterPile. If it is rejected, it stays on HubPages. If it's good enough, it is moved to LetterPile.
There are lots of other sites where you don't have to wait for someone to approve your writing, why not try them:
When I first visited LetterPile it displayed write to us so I assumed maybe it is a separate page like hubpages. Can I post these stories in some other site intended only for books and novels so that many people can read my works or it is against the rules to do that?
No, your hub will be flagged as being copied. Not illegal or anything, but not a good idea.
The best thing to do is create your own site, write your stories and post sections of them to review sites. There's no problem posting it anywhere you like, when it's on your own blog. HubPages is very strict because they don't want to upset the Great God Google. But that leaves you stuck with their rules.
Setting up a blog is the easiest thing in the world these days if you use Blogger or Wordpress.com. Then there's Wix and Tumblr - easier still. Then you have all the freedom to post what you like wherever you want. You won't get paid, but that's not your aim, is it? You can eventually add advertising to a Blogger blog.
So, HP is primarily intended as a platform for writers to earn. That's why they have so many rules and strict standards. It is not a social media sharing site like some platforms.
We've explained this quite often to you as it is obvious that it's the wrong place for you and your work.
Getting published here does not mean that many people will automatically see your work. The site doesn't do promotion. Even your own followers are not guaranteed to read your writing. In fact, I predict that the facility to follow other hubbers will soon disappear.
If your aim is to spread the word about your work, to write stories and deliver psychic messages, then HubPages is the wrong site for you and you should go to Tumblr. If your aim is to write top-notch non-fiction in order to earn money, then stay.
No I am not going to compromise on the quality of my work. Everyone wishes their work to be best or even to be top of the world. I am not purposely posting work of less standard but it happens to every hubber here no matter what subject they choose to write about. You see I am not posting psychic message in the paranormal experience category anymore. I am only focusing on building story from my own thoughts. I can post endless messages from them but I stopped doing it.
I think the moderators can still pull out some issues even if the grammar is perfect.
I put my short stories link in the Facebook I think I should get many readers from there. I think it will take time for people to read them.
If you want your short stories and novels published go to a self publishing web site. Most don't charge you to publish but you must have a certain amount of pages.
Whispering Night, have you looked into Kindle publishing through Amazon?
I just checked it. Looks interesting but are they strict about images I use?
I don't know. Some of them do not use images at all, I believe.
Okay if i have to publish my short stories. Then I have to compile my stories into one book
How about the ''Poet Exile's''? They ever get that thing running?

Hi, I am a young adult and juvenile fantasy writer and would like to write short stories to publish on Hubpages. Is this a good fit for Hubpages? I notice many of the articles under poetry, books and writing ask questions or do book reviews.

LetterPile, as best I can figure from the examples shown and the subcategories, is only for original works of creative writing, such as short stories, poems, memoir essays, and so on. I like LetterPile as it is. There is no vertical or niche site at HubPages about the writing life, and that seems...

Good day, Everyone. My name is Zeenat. I am a new member of HubPages community. I joined just 2 days ago. I've already published eight articles, three of them has been moved to LetterPile. But there is something very depressing. I'm basically a poet. Poetry is my passion. Today, I visited the...

I have a hub that currently gets an amount of Google views per day I'm not allowed to specify, but which is certainly much more than most of my hubs that have already been moved were getting on Hubpages proper. Unfortunately, I think that there may not be a place for it on a HubPages network site...

The niche sites have been a great idea for HP. Combined with the new EBDA (Exchange Bidding), many hubbers are seeing an increase in HP income. This is awesome to see. I believe this alone will inspire more hubs of higher quality. My concern is for LetterPile. I have a lot of stories and articles...

This last year I improved my hubs and had 112 featured of 130 articles: Now suddenly they bust me down to only 30 featured hubs. I feel this contributes to a websites decline. I made a comment on a survey that I don't get any payout for this site and gave my opinion, and now...
