Our Code of Conduct

One of the foundations of our mission at Water Dragon Publishing is non-discriminatory inclusiveness. This means that, just as we welcome the submission of stories from all genres and authors, we also require that our authors and staff interact respectfully with our audience, regardless of their gender identification, sexual preferences, race, etc.

We, the Water Dragon Publishing management team, have a zero‑tolerance policy toward “hate speech” of any kind — be it an expression of fascism, white supremacy, or any other forms of racist and discriminatory behavior. Racist language, ideas, positions, dogwhistles, and assertions, will be considered unacceptable in any posting that is in any way associated with Water Dragon Publishing and will not be tolerated.

We also expect our authors and staff to refrain from:

  • expressing personal opinions that do not reflect the professional opinions of Water Dragon Publishing
  • sharing posts that, intentionally or not, negatively represent or impact another person or group of people

The Water Dragon Publishing Professional Code of Conduct is not limited to the statements made above. Use your common sense and human compassion when interpreting this policy.
