    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.

      @ celeste, sure. I believe that you will be very happy writing your short stories, but make sure that your stories meet HubPages' guidelines--use of profanity; spammy elements, and the such. You have picked a wise choice in writers' sites in HubPages.

      Hi Celeste,

      You are certainly welcome to do creative writing on HubPages. Most of the articles you see around the site are informative rather than creative because those articles tend to get more traffic from search engines and earn money for authors. Creative writing, unfortunately, tends not to earn much because readers are not as actively searching for it, but we do still have many writers who make creative pieces for the love of it (and some who do both).

    I don't think it's a good fit for HubPages unless you generate enough traffic to prevent them for idling (de-indexing) your stories.  I would recommend just doing a blog on a site that offers free blogs.

    It's very difficult to get Google traffic for fiction no matter where you post online.   HubPages doesn't allow anyone under 18 to be a member, so you're not going to find an audience for juvenile fantasy amongst fellow Hubbers, either.  So no, I don't think the HubPages network is a good place for it.

    The Letterpile site has recently been changed so that it's exclusively creative writing.   IF it can build a reputation as a go-to site for fiction, and if you can get your Hubs accepted for Letterpile, then in the long run it might work.

      Hi there, welcome,

      I'm afraid no-one is going to type out how HubPages works and how you go about writing here. You have to do some research. Meanwhile, basic HubPages knowledge includes using punctuation correctly and using I not i for the first personal pronoun smile

      For more information:

    I think it is because you have a group that will help you out in your first try. There are hubbers who are successful in doing this. The ones I am familiar with are Bill Holland, Peg Cole and MsDora. Check out their stories.

      When you say they're successful, aesta, how do you know?   They do write short stories here but that doesn't mean they get many readers for them.   They may just be doing it for their small group of friends, for all you know.

    Thank you to everybody for your input. I think it might make more sense to publish my short stories on my blog. I appreciate the help. I'll keep my eye on Letterpile though.
