This Month at Textbroker: January 2012
This post announces the winners of the Christmas writing contest and the inaugural Author Extravaganza.
Tax Time at Textbroker
We are in the process of closing the books on another fantastic year at Textbroker. Thank you for all that you’ve done to make this a record year. We truly appreciate your hard work! Authors who have earned more than $600 in 2011 will receive a 1099 form. As per IRS guidelines, the 1099s will be posted by January 31. We don’t know if the accounting department will have them done earlier, so please give us until then.
Inaugural Author Event
Mark your calendars for Thursday, April 12th, 2012. It’s our inaugural Author Extravaganza! You’re invited to Vegas for an all-day conference. Meet other authors and members of the Textbroker staff, and participate in our grammar events and industry-themed panels. Food will be served, so we will require that you register in advance. The event will have an attendance cap, so start planning now! We’re looking to see what kind of hotel deals we can get for you; we will make details available as we have them. We’re really looking forward to meeting all of you!
Writing Contest Winners
Finally, the news you’ve all been waiting for—the winners of our writing contest! It was an extremely difficult decision made by consensus of the Textbroker editorial staff. All of the entries were incredibly entertaining and creative. We sincerely appreciate the hard work and extensive thought that clearly went into each of the entries. Last time we ran a creative writing contest, we actually received comments on the stories from clients who had read the author blog, so we hope that this endeavor turns out to be fruitful for more than just the proud winners of a poster byThe Oatmeal. Without further ado, the winners of the posters are, in no particular order, Aloha, NatMikey, H. Tibbs, and WordChick. We also wanted to give props to a few authors who we think deserve an honorable mention and will be receiving a minor token from the TB staff: RedCoat, Jenibabi, Buck James, A-075831, andWurman. Once again, great job everyone! We are incredibly lucky to work with such a talented group of people!
