The Ink Well

The Ink Well is a @curie and @ocd curated community supporting short story writers on hive.

The Ink Well is a friendly community for all of the story tellers on the hive blockchain.

The Ink Well is also one of the only writers’ communities directly supported by curie and ocd, which means we will be rewarding well written creative writing with curie and ocd votes.

The Ink well aims to reward all diverse forms of imaginative writing. If you write literary fiction we’ve got you covered. If genre fiction is your bag, dip your pen and fill the well with sci-fi, fantasy, horror or even roleplay/D+D based stories.

If your story has narrative and a plot of some kind, please join us and dive into the ink well.

We are not able to accept poetry or chapters of serials at the moment.
