As explained in the rules, being a member is meant to be reserved for writers with a couple of stories ready to submit. Anyone is allowed to submit a story, regardless if they are a member or not. With that in mind, there is little difference between being a member and a watcher. If you are not a writer with stories in your gallery, please just watch the group instead.
I'm making this journal because in the past 3 days there have been 17 separate applications from people who are not writers.
I'm not trying to guilt or shame anyone, it's just getting a little out of hand.
So yeah - apply if you're a writer! If not, just watch the group and enjoy a steady stream of stories from almost every known FMG writer on DA! If you're a writer who hasn't joined yet, feel free to apply!
Also - if you are a member, please submit some of your stories if you haven't yet.
Thanks, and hope you enjoy all the content to come!
