Writers - Now's Your Chance To Get Paid To Write At Lorable
At Lorable we're building a platform for writers to create interactive content and make money doing so. It's been in the vision of Lorable to pay writers from the beginning, but bringing an equitable solution to the table has has been a monumental effort as a business, as it is perhaps the most crucial aspect of our app.
Our main concern is that we don't want to introduce a way to pay everyone, only to change it (due to the evolving nature of launching Lorable) and upset the writers we’ve worked to have an ethical, positive relationship with.
I do think it it's important to get this message across however; At Lorable we want to pay creative minds for making amazing choice-based content.
We've considered many different models that exist, from users buying stories outright, to freemium subscription models like YouTube or Twitch, and are close to announcing our own! While we work out the structure of how we do this over the next few months, we want to start providing value to the writers as we build up our base of content.
To this end, I'd like to announce the first (of many) Lorable contests! This time around, things should be relatively straightforward:
The authors of the first ten (10) stories published on Lorable with more than 2500 words will each receive $50! To be submitted, a story must be written and published using the Lorable Editor (with a Lorable Account).
Submissions for this contest can be submitted between 12:00AM PST Tuesday September 10, 2019 and 12:00AM PST Monday October 7th, 2019.
We reserve the right to reject any submissions from consideration. This is to prevent clear abuses such as plagiarism, copyright infringement, or minimal effort works like a story repeating the same 10-word choices 500 times. If this occurs, you will be notified by email.
The winners and their stories will be featured on the Lorable Library page in the app. Winners will also be notified by email.
Entries must be original.
One (1) valid entry per person
Submission indicates acceptance of all contest rules, unless the user specifically indicates in their story description that they would not like for their entry to be considered.
Participants must be 18 years of age or older.
If you have any issues with the editor, please check out our tutorial or use the chat function on the editor to talk to us!
By participating in this contest, not only do you get your works promoted by Lorable, but also: you provide feedback through the usage of our tool that helps us make huge steps in improving our the reader and editor, all of which makes it easier for you to write Lorable Stories!
Our team plans having more community contests in the future, wherein readers can vote on their favorite stories in various genres, creating more opportunities for people to make money sharing their Lorable stories! This is just the first of what we hope to be several, and we hope you’ll join us in this pilot journey.
* NOTE: Story Words are the number of words that a reader can read in your story, not including the words associated with choices. These can be found in the Stats Tab, seen in the gif below.
