Laws punishing young writers

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

Friday and Saturday, two stories leaked out of two writers being punished for short stories they wrote by their schools and possibly the law.(Links Below) As a writer, and knowing how many writers are on this site these news stories hit home and I felt that I had to do something. In protest I wrote my own short story, and I am asking for all the writers on this site, anyone who believes in the freedom of speech, anyone that believes creativity and imagination should not be limited to please make a stand. Help out these kids already punished and possibly stop it from happening anymore.

Thank you.
