Cowbird is a global community of people from different cultures and backgrounds, often raised with different beliefs and social norms. This diversity is a tremendous source of awareness and empathy, but can also lead to awkward situations. Like a traveler in a foreign land, please be gracious, respectful, and courteous to those you meet along the way. Authors who insist on being hateful, libelous, or repeatedly rude will be asked to leave our community.
Cowbird is a space for self-reflection, not self-promotion. Please don’t use Cowbird to promote your company, brand, organization, product, or yourself. It is fine to include a “call to action” at the end of a story, but please make sure that the story stands on its own as a story, and that it doesn’t feel like an ad.
Cowbird is committed to building a comprehensive public library of human experience, and human experience is not always pretty. It can be ugly, messy, violent, painful, and lewd. But there is a balance to strike, and we have to abide by the law. Please don’t post copyrighted material, pornography, hate speech, or other illegal content.
Cowbird is a place for sharing your personal experience of life, not for sharing links to stuff you like (there are many other places for that). Please don’t post pop songs, stock photos, clip art, screenshots, or other recycled stuff. If you’re uploading audio, please make sure it’s original, and that you either wrote it, performed it, or own the copyright. This will go a long way towards making Cowbird feel authentic, refreshing, and human. As for pen names — they are totally fine. Many authors wish to tell stories anonymously, and you're certainly free to do that.
As a Cowbird storyteller, you may post stories, data, information, text, music, sound, photographs, images, graphics, messages, tags, or other materials (which we call "Content").
