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.
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 feel concerned that the reason google may prefer ehow as opposed to hubpages, is because there is an abundance of poetry and short stories. I am not by any means saying that those who publish the short stories...
when/if you write short stories or even novels (like im attempting!) how do you come up with your character names? do you use people from your life or do you let the character develop before giving them a name? I have a...
Write a Hub that is outside your comfort zone in 2015. (If you normally write informative articles, try a short story or poem. If you're a creative writer, consider a tutorial or explanation Hub.)This above sentence was...
I often see forum posts about how the site is 'dying', or asking why people would continue writing here after they've earned success on their own websites. So I thought I'd start a thread about WHY people still write...
Just wondering! I have a lot of old poems (I no longer write poetry often though I once did). I still write a lot of stories... especially flash fiction.I could put my poems and stories here on HubPages... but my main...
