This Month at Textbroker: December 2011
This month's news includes our UK launch, our Zazzle shop, and a writing contest.
Textbroker.co.uk launched on December 12th. Textbroker.co.uk will not be accepting US writers due to US tax laws, but we hope that our authors understand. While we do anticipate some clients will switch over to our UK platform, we are actively recruiting new clients and working hard to maintain our current clientele.
Due to the current exchange rate between British pounds, Euros and US dollars, the price per word in Europe is higher than the price per word in the US, and as a result, many European clients may elect to keep their business at Textbroker.com, particularly if they have established relationships with our writers.
We do not believe that this new development will significantly impact Textbroker.com orders.
We now have a Zazzle shop for authors who want to purchase Textbroker-branded merchandise. Authors are under no obligation to purchase these items, and prices are set by Zazzle. You can find our items here.
We will be turning off auto-accept from 12/23/2011 – 12/27/2011 and 12/30/2011 – 1/3/2012. Please allow for delays during this time as we encourage our authors and clients to enjoy the holidays.
We’re closing out the year with another creative writing contest. The writers of the four best entries will receive a poster from The Oatmeal. We'll begin reviewing submissions on January 3, 2012. Please use the following prompt to begin your story, and please post all replies in the comment field below.
Sean smoothed his moustache with a gloved finger. He rocked from leg to leg, his breath leaving in one frustrated puff. He was not wearing that, not for them, not for anyone, not for all the pink unicorns in the hills.
