Writers & Illustrators of the Future Forum ANTI-HARASSMENT POLICY

This is a place to welcome new members and to discuss the Forum as a way to serve writers and illustrators.
Forum rules
Welcome to the Writers of the Future Forum. The Forum has been created to provide a place for aspiring writers and artists to meet other like-minded writers and artists, individuals interested in pursuing a dream of becoming a writer or artist. In this forum, you will meet people from all over the world, aspiring to success as either a writer or artist, or perhaps both.

The Forum follows the original mission statement as provided by the Writers of the Future Contest founder, L. Ron Hubbard:

“A culture is as rich and as capable of surviving as it has imaginative artists. The artist is looked upon to start things. The artist injects the spirit of life into a culture. And through his creative endeavors, the writer works continually to give tomorrow a new form.
“In these modern times, there are many communication lines for works of art. Because a few works of art can be shown so easily to so many, there may even be fewer artists. The competition is very keen and even dagger sharp.
“It is with this in mind that I initiated a means for new and budding writers to have a chance for their creative efforts to be seen and acknowledged.”
— L. Ron Hubbard, from the Introduction to Writers of the Future Volume 1

You will always be welcome in this forum as long as you adhere to our simple rules.
1. Slanderous statements against the Forum, its members or the Contest are not allowed and will be removed immediately when found by a Moderator.
2. Promoting products, services or websites not directly affiliated with Writers of the Future are not allowed and will be removed immediately when found by a Moderator.
3. Actions that violate our Anti-Harassment policy are not allowed.

Thank you and wishing you success with your career as a writer or artist!
