Join Our Community


As part of Catapult’s mission to nurture writers, we’re hosting a Community that serves as a resource and an online home for writers and readers, where they can publish pieces in-progress or completed, receive feedback from Catapult editors, find open and empathetic readers for their work, and benefit from frank insider conversations about storytelling, pitching, and publishing.

Go to our Community page and click on “write a story” in the upper right-hand corner, and our site will walk you through the registration process. Once you sign up using your Facebook, Twitter, or email account, you will be able to post and edit stories, which can then be shared with friends, family, social networks and, of course, other Community users. When you’re logged in, you can also follow other writers to stay informed of their latest posts, and write responses to other Community posts as well as to the work featured in the magazine.

As with the rest of Catapult, the focus of Community is on narrative, both fiction and nonfiction. Posting previously published work is acceptable, as long as it is not available elsewhere online and is not promotional in nature.

If you encounter any problems using our Community, or would like to offer suggestions and improvements, please send us an email. We’d love to hear from you.

Thanks for exploring our Community. We hope you enjoy it!
