Do I get the feeling my first pages here must be  real articles of informational topics ?   I am a poet and short story writer .

You can post fiction, but this is primarily a site for articles. I have one short story, but probably won't be posting any more fiction here. As for poetry, it's hard to get an audience anywhere, probably next to impossible here.

We don't reject fiction and poetry.

However, if you want to go places with your art, you should first create an e-book, and then market it with an article (containing excerpts plus additional, original text) on Wizzley (and elsewhere).

You see, once you've published your complete content here, Amazon won't allow you to utilize their KDP-Select program because of duplicate content issues. You could still publish a regular Kindle version, but why give all your content away for free, anyway?

If being a published Wizzley author is all you want, and you're not interested in selling your stories otherwise ... sure, go ahead and publish away.  Smile

That's kind of confusing for anyone who isn't familiar with Amazon publishing, Chef. You don't have to use KDP Select in order to sell your work. I sell my novels and short stories through plain old KDP, which doesn't require exclusivity. I also have them on Smashwords. But it's nice to know that I can promote them on Wizzley.

You're right, it was just an example, anyway. There are several reasons why you would not want to publish your literary works on an article platform. It really depends on the author's intentions. Let's wait until he gets back to us.

I am really a fiction writer, but do create articles for Wizzley. I do not know what a KDP is, or how to write for an Ebook. Could you please explain, or message me?

Apologies if this is not acceptable Wizzley practice.

KDP = Kindle Direct Publishing (Amazon)

"How to publish an e-book" is the topic of several Wizzley articles. Please use the search function on top of any page to find those articles.
