Short explanation: Certain details in your book or chapter are not appropriate for all Storybird readers.
More info: Some books and chapters contain characters who are encountering, participating in, or making decisions about “mature” activities (like physical relationships/activity or drinking/drug use), or who are in the midst of or recovering from challenging, mature experiences (like miscarriage, abuse, depression, etc).
Because Storybird is home to readers of all ages (and often used in school environments), we ask writers to be responsible and thoughtful when they create stories that include these themes and topics.
If your story contains overly-graphic details, explicit or vulgar descriptions, overly-detailed accounts of mature topics, or writing that would be better suited for an audience of adult readers, we will ask you to edit/revise it or consider making it a private story, rather than a part of our public library. This is to help preserve Storybird’s safe environment. While we believe in giving writers room to explore and share their creativity, readers are also an important part of our community, and respecting their boundaries and sensitivities is equally a priority.For more information and explanations about specific issues relating to our Guidelines, check the other topics in the Understanding Our Guidelines section of our Help/FAQ.
