It's not easy being a writer. Ever. Some people tell you that Writers' Block doesn't exist, others tell you it does. Some people say that you can't be a writer unless you've had something published, others say that you become a writer as soon as you put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard).
At Crowvus, we plan to take away some of the confusion and stress, by providing a platform for our authors to get their work Out There with the minimum amount of fuss and the maximum amount of support.
That's why we want to keep running competitions, so that other people can benefit from the Crowvus ethos as well!
Some Things We Would Like You To Know
Crowvus doesn't do money. Not really. Our interest is in sharing the written word and so 100% of all profits on book sales are invested in our authors, events and competitions.
All the members of our team have other jobs. This is how we are able to feed and clothe ourselves and manage to run Crowvus. But that means we may not always be able to get back straight away when you contact us.
At the moment, we are working at just about full capacity! That does mean that we're unable to accept any unsolicited material. This is something that we would love to change so do keep checking.
Unless already agreed, please don't send anything by post. Unfortunately we will not be able to respond and any manuscripts will have to be responsibly recycled.
A doorknocker seems like a good place to start.
