Great way to get your writing out there

I have gone through many writing sites and this is the best I have been on. It's easy to use and view other's works. That being said, it is of course possible to post inappropriate content, and their are no age ratings, but most of the authors I've seen make it as appropriate as possible or include a warning in the description. The moderators do a good job of pulling people off who just mindlessly insult people, and it's very easy to contact them

The Perfect Writing Community

I've been on other websites for publishing stories, and I have to say that Figment is probably my favorite. Unlike some sites I have been on, I get constructive criticism on Figment-which is exactly what I'm looking for. It's the perfect writing community; so far the people I've seen have been really supportive, yet able to give (nice) criticism to help writers improve. And there are contests, groups, and more to do on this website. The site suggests that users be at least 13+ to join, and so far I haven't seen anything very inappropriate for anyone over the teenage age.

Great :)

It's an outlet for creativity! I really like writing, but I wast so much paper and I have no one to share the stories with. So it's really fun for me.

This site is okay, but I prefer Wattpad. Nothing bad to me, nice people. But often weird books.
