Hey fellow writers ๐Ÿ‘‹,

To aid us with our mission, we've created Verbals Community with the aim of becoming the best library of content that helpers authors to write best novel and it is already being read by many authors each month.

Why write for Verbals Community?

1. We're open to your ideas

We are generally looking for authors who have their own ideas on topics they want to write about, who can propose topics and follow through quickly.

Please note that, as a general rule, we are not looking for current news or trendy content as there are plenty of other outlets for such content on the net. We're more interested in in-depth guides and how-to articles that cover an important aspect of writing novels.

2. We'll support you throughout the process

Throughout the topic ideation and writing process, you will work one-on-one with an editor who will provide detailed feedback on your work, and edits to your draft all the way till publication. We will also assist you in promoting your article once it's live.

3. You're free to republish the content on your blog

We ask that you grant Verbals exclusive rights to publish your work for a period of two weeks after publication. Thereafter, the article is released under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 license (CC BY-SA 4.0) and you may republish it however you wish (on a personal blog for example) as long as correct attribution (we prefer a canonical link) is provided and it's not used for commercial purposes.

4. No deadlines

We don't set strict deadlines but we generally aim to publish an article within a month or two of approval.
