#AmWriting news: Simplify your writing competition entries with @theidlescribe


I know plenty of my readers are also writers who love entering competitions to get their writing out into the world. As someone who used to enter lots of competitions I know how hard it can be to keep track of all your entries so I was delighted to here about The Idle Scribe submissions platform.

Today Will is guest posting to tell you a little more about the website and how it works.

I'd like to take the opportunity to introduce the latest innovation in the world of writing competitions. The Idle Scribe offers simple, safe, and secure submissions to the very best competitions and awards. Best of all, it's a free service for writers. Our site is designed by writers, for writers, and our fair business model also sees competitions benefit. 

As writers we know how hard it can be to get your work to where you want it to be, and writing competitions often offer a lot of worthwhile rewards, in terms of both cash prizes, and exposure. Anyone that has tried to submit to one though, will likely testify to the difficulties of firstly finding one suitable for your writing, and secondly, following the often convoluted submission system to be considered. This is where we can help, our submissions platform has a fully searchable and sortable list of open competitions, and our one-click submission software makes submitting a breeze. 

We are building a community on trust and are careful to perform the necessary due diligence on new competition listings before they are allowed to accept entries. In fact, we are so confident that only genuine competitions are listed, in the unlikely event one turns out to be fraudulent, we offer a 100% money back guarantee to any members who entered through us. Not bad for a service with no charge!

Once signed up both writers and competitions have access to our online submission management service. Competitions can easily manage all of their submissions, with the ability to easily view, download, rate and add notes to each of their entries, they're also able to quickly contact each of their entrants and make any amendments to their listings. Writers can use our comprehensive search functions to find the competitions that are best suited to their work, filtering by competition type/format, location, keyword and sort their search results by entry fees and deadline date. Within their personal dashboard they are also able to monitor the status of each of their entries and bookmark competitions that they would like to enter at a later date.

But it doesn't end there, as writers ourselves we love to share, and we know that a strong community is beneficial to everyone. With this in mind we created the community forums where you can discuss ideas, get feedback or simply procrastinate with fellow writers.

We also take security very seriously, therefore our site uses the latest SSL protection, and we only ever deal with Paypal when it comes to payments to provide piece of mind to all of our members.

We are currently in our soft launch phase, but we are accepting members already and we are working with their feedback to keep improving the service. We'd love for you to check out more of what we have to offer, and if you want to help us shape a better, safer future for writers, you're more than welcome in The Idle Scribe community. Our major marketing campaign is planned for early November, so things should really start to heat up around then.
