    The Quick Post Widget follows the WordPress roles and capabilities so subscribers are not allowed to post.
    If however you do want subscribers to post there is a simple hack to accomplish this. You could for instance on line 413 of the current version 1.7.1 of the quick-post-widget.php change:

    if ( current_user_can('publish_posts') )

    to

    if ( $current_user->user_level >= 0 )

    To allow subsribers to create new categories change line 415 to the same.
    Hope this helps.
