r/write Community and Publishing

The purpose of r/write’s relationship with Wolf Pack Publishing, Reddit Authors, and the other subs is to provide the community with an arena to display their work. Imagine it as a litmus test, in that the work you submit to us will be examined and reviewed to ensure not only our name is synonymous with quality, but yours is also.

Also, we ask that if you find any of the sites or services useful, please dedicate some of your time to spreading the word. The community evolves and thrives when everybody pitches in.
