Considering the size that Teen Writers has grown to, I've decided that my hectic schedule cannot give this group and its amazing members the care that it deserves. Please be patient while I offically freeze the group and decide the groups future.
Thank you to all memebers who have not torn into me about the awful neglect I have givin this group. But I promise I will leave all of you in able hands.
Thank you for your tolernece of my horrible managing skills, and I will keep everyone updated. :p

Submission Guidelines and Requirments

Just a warning: We will be mildly strict on the judging of submissions. We want all of you to be the best you can possibly be. So please by all means do NOT feel offended when we point out spelling errors, grammar errors etc...
We WON'T judge the content of the story though. We're only looking for grammar/spelling.

If you are a teen (20 and under) you may submit any writing as long as it:

:bulletblue: Uses proper grammar and spelling. If we think that your writing doesn't meet this requirment we will decline your submission and suggest you submit in the critique folder instead. This is a club to help improve writing. Take advantage of it.

For members that are ABOVE the age of 20

:bulletgreen: Your main character (protagonist) MUST be a teenager (20 and under) and your story must be of the young adult genere.

Proper grammar and spelling are still a requirment.

Your deviation MAY contain:

- Profanity. Just make sure it has the proper filters if the language is obscene.

- PG-13 rated romance. Don't make me go into details. Use your judgement. If I find your deviation unappropriate I WILL decline it.

- Boy/boy and girl/girl romance. The PG-13 rule STILL applies.

- Voilence and gore. The filter rule still applies.

Your deviation MAY NOT contain:

- Fan fiction material. This is NOT a fan fiction club. All stories submitted must be ORIGINAL characters.

- Romance of the rated R variety. These submissions WILL be declined.

- Hateful works targeting a specific race, sexual orintation etc...

Follow these simple rules and you shouldn't have any difficulties submitting your work to the Teen-Writers Gallery.

Stinks that people can't join the group right now. If anyone wants me too, I could start a back-up group even though I'm not a member...

Sorry, the group's founder wants to rejuvenate things and get some new energy and perspective for the group, so she paused all activity, but uhhh...she doesn't get to come online much, so things have kind of stalled...I'm not sure if any of the other moderators knows what's happening at all ^^;
