Team Ilé Alo have designed this space for storytellers and story-lovers all over the world to connect and truly enjoy the sharing of stories. This means that we have put minimal barriers in place to story sharing and encourage everyone to get involved. However, we want this to remain safe space that we can all be proud of, so we have put a few basic rules in place. These Community Guidelines outline our approval process for story submissions and highlights the stuff we don’t want on Ilé Alo.

By using Ilé Alo you are agreeing to follow these guidelines.

Approval process

When you press ‘publish’ on a story, our team will be notified of your submission. Your story will then be reviewed for any Community Guideline violations. The review process is quick and once we are satisfied that the story is good to go, we will allow it to upload to the site and notify you by email that it is now available.

Here are the Guidelines
