IntroductionEdit

Novelas is a site to post your creative writing.

As a wiki, this site uses the CC-BY-SA license. This is a type of copyleft licensing by which you freely share your work. You agree to allow other people to copy or modify what you write, but they must give you credit (attribution) for what you wrote. Note that what you write here can be used by others for commercial purposes as long as they give you attribution.

If you plan to publish your story conventionally (print publishing, for-profit online magazine, etc.) then think carefully before you submit it to Novelas. Many conventional publishers won't touch your work if you previously placed it under a copyleft license. However, the work can be removed upon request (eg Forum:Awakening: Beginnings Pt I)
