The Ink Well

The Ink Well is a @curie curated community supporting short story writers on the Hive blockchain

Our community is specifically for publishing and supporting short fiction.

We are one of the only writers’ communities directly supported by curie, which means we reward well-written creative writing with curie votes.

The Ink Well aims to reward all diverse forms of imaginative writing, from literary fiction to genre fiction including sci-fi, fantasy, horror or even roleplay/D+D based stories. However, we ask that you avoid excessive gore and violence. Please read our rules below. Note that we must mute any posts that are plagiarized, depict violence against women or otherwise break our community rules.

NOTE: We are not able to accept poetry or chapters of serials.

If your short story has a narrative, a story line and meaningful characters, please join us in The Ink Well.
