Welcome to Stories of Arda. This website is intended to be a general archive, hosting stories that are based on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. Authors are encouraged to read the books and write stories based upon them. Tolkien's world covered thousands of years and multiple races, so there is ample room for many to write, as he encouraged us to do.
Please complete all of the following information to be considered as an author with posting privileges at Storiesofarda.com. Please sign up as a member of the website before applying.
If you have applied and been declined in the past, please wait 3 months before reapplying. If you do reapply after 3 months, be very clear if you have improved your previous works or only want us to consider new works.
Please remember that we approve authors, not stories. We will ask you to list all of the stories you plan to post, so that we may review your work as a whole, and so that we know that you have read the guidelines and excluded stories not appropriate for the website. We prefer to see at least one completed story, but will consider a first story well in progress with an outline. We do not have a procedure in place to post individual stories on behalf of authors who are not approved to post on their own. We operate on the honor system - if you write stories that you know do not meet guidelines, tell us up front so we don't consider them. If you are granted posting privileges, do not post those stories or others that do not meet guidelines. There are plenty of authors here, including the owners, who have stories that do not meet guidelines and hence, do not post them here
