We want to help sustain the new generation of writing, which values and protects the integrity, safety, and well-being of being an independent writer. We aim for the Substack community1 to reflect that mission. That means we ask you to:
Be kind to each other. This is not a space that tolerates calls for violence, exclusion, or segregation based on protected classes. Offending behavior includes serious attacks on people based on their race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability or medical condition.
Respect each other’s identities and life experiences. They’re different from yours.
Look out for others. Consider how you can create safe space for each other.
Celebrate good writing. We’re all here because we believe that what you read matters and that good writing is valuable.
How we’ll enforce Community Guidelines
If you engage with a writer who you think violates our Community Guidelines, please report to the Substack Community team at email@example.com. All reports will be reviewed and investigated and will result in a response that is deemed necessary and appropriate to the circumstances.
Moderators have the right and full discretion to remove comments or other contributions that are not aligned to the Community Guidelines and/or Substack Content Guidelines, or to suspend temporarily or permanently any members for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.
The Substack Community team are here to support you as moderators. They can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
