Recently, we released an update to Episode that will change the availability of some features in the app. Don't worry, features such as the Search bar, Profile section, Create section, User Stories, and Contest Winner shelves will be made available to your app after reading the introductory stories.
If you wish to write a story, but do not have access to the Create feature just yet, we highly suggest joining the Writers Portal website to write and preview your stories. You can visit the Writers Portal website here: https://www.episodeinteractive.com/write/
If you have any other questions or concerns, you are welcome to join the Episode Official Forum to discuss anything and everything related to app and even meet other players and authors just like you. You can find the Episode Forum here: https://forums.episodeinteractive.com/
