Guidelines

The safety of our writers, authors, readers, and partners is our highest priority. We look to each of you to help us protect this unique and vibrant community. It is important to you to understand our Community Guidelines, and the role they play in our shared responsibility to keep Lipi Magazine safe. Take the time to carefully read the Guidelines below.

  • Our policies aim to make Lipi Magazine a safer community while still giving writers/members the freedom to share a broad range of experiences and perspectives
  • We rely on Lipi Magazine community members to report, or flag content/writing that they find inappropriate. Reporting content is anonymous, so other users can’t tell who made the report
  • When something is reported, it’s not automatically taken down. Reported content is reviewed by editors along with team members
  • Content and Profile/Account that don’t follow the Guidelines may be blocked, or terminated and removed from Lipi Magazine
  • If you find  any error or mistake in our system or you have any kinds of idea, suggestion, query or changes, please email us at [email protected]

On the other way, we may send email notifications to all registered members (Particularly, Contributors, Authors, Active Authors, and Editorial Authors).
