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.
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 freelancer 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 A4, A5 or A6 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. This opportunity is suitable for anyone in the UK with great handwriting and a love of all things letters! You just need is a postal address, smart phone and access to the internet!
We have a thriving online community to connect our freelancers 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: We are running a tribe-led initiative to launch a ‘Care Campaign’: 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.
