PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS. I know it's a lot, but it's important. Also, PLEASE CHECK the weekly activity every day.

~Introduction to SPS~
Hai, and welcome to SPS! We are a community of poets and writers who desire feedback and appreciation for their poems. Inspiration to do this studio came from SWC, or Scratch Writing Camp, (if you don't recognize my username that means I looked at the SWC cabins and invited you) except SPS goes year-round! Add any poem you like, but if it violates the rules below, then I will take it off the studio.
~Any Poems You Add~
1. Cannot be threatening or inappropriate
2. You can take inspiration from other people, but be sure to give them credit and you can't plagiarize.
3. If it's not appropriate for school, it's not appropriate for SPS.
4. PLEASE DON'T SPAM thank you! :D
5.You can only delete and re-add your projects every 3 months!
~Curating and Managing~
Just ask to curate, and send a link to two of your poems! If you don't have poems on scratch, just type up 2 in the comments.
As for managing, if you are fairly active and have added a bunch of poems to the studio, you may be promoted to manager. When you are manager, I ask that you please not change the thumbnail unless permitted by me. Do not change the description or title unless you see a spelling or grammatical error or to update the description (i.e adding points to teams, entering in results of contests, changing the weekly activity, etc.) Do not delete a Scratcher from the studio unless you believe they are violating the rules or have commented something mean. Thanks!
Every week we can, SPS will hold a weekly writing contest. The winners will be announced here. 1st Place gets to choose the next weekly activity, 2nd gets to choose Poet of the Week, and 3rd place just gets a shoutout and earns 1 pt.This week's writing contest results: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/254560341/
