The Scribe Tribe is a creative and welcoming community of freelance (hand)writers, who transcribe the gorgeous letters Inkpact sends on behalf of their clients. We have Scribes working all over the United Kingdom. As we are expanding our services to the United States of America, we are now recruiting Scribes based in the US.
Our mission as a Tribe is to bring together a diverse group of humans who want to earn supplemental income by handwriting letters in their spare time. By joining the Scribe Tribe you also become part of our online community, through which tribe members share their talents, learn new skills, engage with each other and spread delight!
How does it work?
Once you have been accepted as a new freelance writer and have completed your on-boarding training, you’ll have access to Inkpact’s online writer portal through which you can request jobs.
Jobs are letters! Either small or large notecards or full page letters (A4, A5 or A6, if you’re in Europe) in size and they’re paid in tiers accordingly. Inkpact pays their writers per letter and each job you agree to specifies in advance the number of cards/letters, as well as the deadline for completion. You can clearly calculate your earnings via the platform. The only limit per job is how fast (and neatly) you can write and how much time you have.
Jobs appear on the site on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis. Our clever technology will send you a notification (via email or SMS message, up to you!) once new jobs that are relevant to your own handwriting style are loaded. You’re a freelancer! So just like a traditional job board, you can request work as and when it suits your schedule.
The Online Community
The Scribe Tribe members work all over the UK (for now, wink!). This opportunity is suitable for anyone in the UK (and now the US too) with great handwriting and a love of all things letters! You just need a postal address, smart phone and access to the internet!
We have a thriving online community to connect our freelance writers that is hosted on Facebook where we run several inter-tribe initiatives as well as provide opportunities to learn, share, grow and connect.
The Book Club: We have a successful, online book club! Members of the Tribe vote for and read a new book each month. We gather online and discuss the book. It’s great fun and popular.
Learning Courses: Inside the Tribe we have makers and writers. We regularly run challenges and Tribe-led learning courses teaching each other lettering, calligraphy, bullet-journalling, scrapbooking, writing and much more.
Open With Care and the CoLoveLetters: We regularly run tribe-led initiative and have launched a few ‘Care Campaigns’: a letter of thanks, support or love to selected communities such as those in care homes and hospitals, in partnership with some incredible brands that support these people (Open With Care) and a notecard of love, company and combat of loneliness, where notecards were sent to individuals, hero key workers and communities (like care homes) thanking the recipient for their strength and love (the CoLoveLetters).

The Community Team
Tania joined Inkpact in 2017 as a writer and early 2018 she started helping out with Finance Admin. But she’s actually an actress, so her creative side was craving for more and when the role of Community Manager became available she jumped with both feet and is now starting to guide and improve the experience of our Scribe Tribe! She’s cooking up workshops, meetups, giveaways, and general fun for everyone involved while managing every campaign, a team of over 150 writers and reviewers. She’s also the creator of The Acting Edit, a YouTube channel (and other social media channels) about her experience and life as an actress!
