It's a question which I've been asked in PM and I didn't know the answer!

If I remember correctly this question has already been here. It is allowed but in general it is better to publish it somewhere else (more art, less business oriented place) and maybe use Wizzley for review of the story or e-book, presentation / interview of / with author or whatever...

Think about keywords! Wizzley can be fine for finding a review of already existing and in demand work, but people in general don't land here when they look for fiction.

As I started as fiction writer I can say Wizzley would not be my first choice. The audience for fiction would just not find my work here. And writers write for audience, right?

I have a short story here, but it's relevant to articles I'll be writing, so I'm not looking for an outside audience or income from it. I doubt that I will post any others, though.

My blog is about words, writing, publishing and associated stuff. I'd be happy to host it there, as a single blog if it's a short story or as a series of entries chapter by chapter of a book.

Do let me know if that's any use.


Described by one of my clients as 'a literary grammarian', writing, researching and reading are requirements for sanity, at least this side of the keyboard.

Maybe then you could post your fiction on a blog and link to it from here when you write on a related topic?

On Wizzley, we like to publish useful content - tips, advice, experiences etc. that benefit readers in some way. One could argue that readers find inspiration or pleasure through fiction (or poetry), which makes for useful articles. I tend to agree, so ...

Yes, we allow fiction on Wizzley. However, as it's been said above already, it's not the best marketing strategy.

Thanks all!  I've passed this on to the lady asking about it.

I use a blog for fiction and find it usually gets more traffic than by mixing it up with other topics, which is something I had on another website. Blogger has lots of templates that suit fiction and it is easy to store copies of drafts there and you can buy a domain name.
