SCRIBISI (formerly known as Publisher Free) has now opened its 2016 writing competition for submissions, with the competition ending on 31 December 2016. All genres are available, and both completed and serialised works are accepted.

We would like to invite your members to be part of this exciting new writing competition, not just for the unparalleled cash prizes on offer, but also to be connected to our global readership.

It's free to join, free to submit, free to read and free to vote and with over US$80,000 already in our prize pool (which grows every day), it's an opportunity I'm sure your members would love to know about.
