Protips:
no "Roses are Red / Violets are Blue" crap.

Send us your blood, sweat, tears, shit, mucus, broken bones, stitched hearts, brains ripped to shreds
COMPEL the AUDIENCE!!!!
make the audience care about your main character
Swearing is fine if it works in context, but overuse isn't edgy, it's moronic.

Erotica/Nudity is fine, but gratuitous sex isn't erotica it's just pornography....

plus, if you write fan-fiction,
change the names of the characters so we don't get sued.

The only hard/fast rule is: NO condoning hate speech or nonconsensual abuse....
You can certainly represent these issues in your art, but condoning these only serve to trigger victims, not to break open peoples' minds so they can grow and overcome.
