Do you like light novels? Want to make your own? Or part of your own? Or just make a small thing tangentially related to one, like a small interactive text thing or a cover mock-up? You're in the right place!
Here's a chance to try your hand at something creative in a safe, supportive environment and help us put more cute stories out into the world. <3
Need a theme to get you started? How about: PACING YOURSELF! A lot of light novels often differentiate themselves from most other popular fiction stories by focusing on easygoing slice-of-life topics. Not everything needs to be taken care of right now; sometimes it's alright to do just what we can in the moment, and take our time.
There's lots of ways to contribute!
