1. So what the hell is a Green Light Press?
Green Light Press is a writing tumblr that runs on the submissions of its followers. It is a step between a normal writing blog and an official online journal, relying on user content.
2. What’s the Green Light referencing?
What, a person can’t like green lights?
3. Who runs the place?
Right now, just me myself and I; this might change in the future, depending on how the project goes.
4. Okay, user content. What do you accept?
5. Well what the hell is good?
6. You’re impossible.
So I’ve been told.
7. How do I submit to this insanity?
The same way you submit to every other blog on tumblr- use the submit button.
8. Are there guidelines for submission?
So there are. You’ll find them at http://greenlightpress.tumblr.com/guidelines.
9. Do you make any money doing this?
Nope. Green Light Press generates no funds. We do it for the lulz.
10. You keep saying ‘we’ but you mentioned that only one person is working on the tumblr. What the hell is up with that?
All fiction writers are one part Omniscient Godhood and one part Head of Committee.
11. …multiple personality disorder?
Sure. Let’s go with that.
12. I notice you add a ‘contributed by’ to the bottom of works, even when there’s a clear tumblr username. Redundancy much?
When attributing work, especially here on tumblr, I feel there is no such thing as redundancy. It takes a lot for a person to post what they’ve created knowing some douchebag somewhere might claim it as their own. I can’t prevent internet douchebags, but I can remind the reader who wrote what.
13. preachy much. So you tag the posts with the contributor’s name for the same reason, then?
Right you are.
