Review Policy

Thanks for dropping by this page! Read about our review policy, submission guidelines, and other terms for special feature or partner requests below. We appreciate your trust and interest in sharing your work with us!

Review Policy

  • We accept fiction and nonfiction in all genre and formats, and give special attention to Filipino creators.
  • We do not use ratings in our posts and instead follow a template that allows readers to share what they like and don’t like about a book. When we post on platforms where such is required, we use a three-star rating default.
  • We encourage full transparency, honesty, and creativity in our reviews. In case the reader did not enjoy the work, we will contact the creator to discuss the next steps.
