Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get featured?

Do you want YOUR story featured on the homepage of Miss Literati?! If so, read carefully! Below is a list of requirements that your story MUST meet in order to be featured. New stories are chosen and rotated every Monday. Your story must have five or more chapters with minimal spelling/grammar errors and MUST have appropriate content. No cursing or "Rated R" stories will be considered! Stories must have a minimum of 200 reads and a rating of three stars or higher. If your story meets these requirements, send an email to contactus@missliterati.com with the link to your story and ONE sentence explaining why YOU should be featured! Multiple emails asking to feature the same story will automatically be disqualified.

How do I get Reader's Choice?

Getting Readers' Choice is another great way to be featured on our homepage. Every Monday, our system will generate a new popular book among users and feature it on our homepage under the title "Readers' Choice Award!" The winner will strictly be determined based off of users' reads and ratings from the week prior. So go ahead, tell all your friends to read YOUR story and who knows? Your story may just be featured as the next Readers' Choice!

We reserve the right to terminate your Miss Literati account if we find out and determine, in our sole discretion, that you are violating any of the following guidelines. Inappropriate content consists of unlawful, harassing, defamatory, abusive, threatening, harmful, vulgar, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, racially offensive, inaccurate or otherwise objectionable material of any kind or nature or that encourages conduct that could constitute a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national or international law or regular, or encourage the use of controlled substances.

How do I report inappropriate content?

At the bottom of each chapter, a link is provided to "Flag as Inappropriate." When you flag a chapter as inappropriate, our moderators review it and either accept or reject the flagging to our discretion.

How do I report a hater on Miss Literati?

We've had some users complaining about haters on the site, and we want to make sure that we do a good job of following up. So we created the "Hater Aid" page, where you can let us know about haters. By "haters", we mean "people that are doing nothing on the site except being mean, rude, spiteful, and talking trash about other users. If someone said something mean about your story, that's a big bummer, and it sure is unpleasant — but it's part of being a writer! That's not hating. If you get into an argument in the comment section of a story, that's not hating, even if the person calls you a name. However, if the only thing that person is doing is stirring up trouble by posting spiteful chapters that are not really stories, mentioning another user, and telling other people to go give that person a hard time... why then, that is hating, and we will follow up with them.
