Discussion Rules

Here at Novel Retreat. We want to create a space that supports and nurtures writers of all abilities and at all points in their journey. We understand sharing your work can be really scary, sharing a part of your soul. For that reason we kindly ask everyone to follow the guidelines below:


Be Nice

We’ve all had that experience where we’ve worked really hard on something only for someone to dismiss it out of hand. Please be considerate when commenting on other people's work. Constructive criticism, with the intention of helping the author improve is encouraged but insults and derogatory comments will not be tolerated.


Copyright and Plagiarism

We take plagiarism seriously. If you are found to be taking credit for someone else's work, or found to be in breach of copyright your post will be removed and you risk having your account being removed. You are responsible for ensuring that any material you post does not violate the copyright or any other personal or proprietary rights of any third party or is posted with the permission of the owner(s) of such rights.


Private information

Please remember NovelRetreat is a public forum which can be viewed by anyone. We discourage posting your private information, such as addresses and telephone numbers.


Duplicate posts

Posting the same message more than once, or "spamming," clutters the Discussions and is not permitted.


Republishing posts
