Hey all, this is just a quick post to tell you about a subreddit I’ve just created and am seeking to populate. It’s called r/originalgenrefiction, and its purpose is to allow myself and others to post blurbs and links to our original works to try and snag more readers’ eyes.
It’s brand new and I’m still ironing out some kinks, so it’s barren at the moment, but if you’re interested or have something to submit I would encourage you to go check it out, post, and follow it to stay tuned. The rules are pretty simple. Your work has to be original, complete, free to read, and feature substantial genre elements (mostly just looking to avoid literary fiction and nonfiction).
I’d like it to be a haven of creativity, as I feel most fiction spaces online are oppressively dominated by works of fan fiction and erotica. Ideally it will be a place where people can find fun and unorthodox stories without involving any kind of monetary transaction. I’ll be posting there myself weekly, and I’d be delighted for some company. Thanks for your time.
