Questions previously asked –

Can I submit a story / poem already published on a free-to-read platform that meets the criteria?

Yes. Many readers who download the anthologies may not have read your stories before. Submitting your stories is a great way to get exposure.

I don’t think my stories are good enough?

If you’re publishing on the internet, then your stories are worth publishing on Moral Fortitude. Editing will be provided in consultation with writers to ensure stories are of publishing quality.

What is Moral Fortitude?

I founded Moral Fortitude in 2012 to promote my self-published books for sale outside of Wattpad. Since that time I have sort to help promote other self-published LGBT writers. I began the anthologies as a way to bring writers together and offer opportunities to publish outside of Wattpad for those who may never consider doing so. I do all of this for free. If you self-publish LGBT stories outside of Wattpad and would like to promote your stories on Moral Fortitude, please let me know.
