How to write and submit stories on NoInk

NoInk   |   27 November 2019

Everyone has a story to tell. Why don’t you share with us yours now?

It’s somewhat a common struggle for writers to have their stories to be recognized by readers across various platforms. Here at NoInk, we understand that problem that’s why we’re here! We’re ready to help you get your works published online in our platform.

What is NoInk?

NoInk is ABS-CBN Books’ online reading and writing platform where aspiring writers can submit their stories, poetry, and even articles, for online publishing. Topics that NoInk accepts do not limit writers because we are welcoming all writing works of all genres. In short, you can write anything under the sun!

Yet, there will always be an exception to the rule – we do not condone stories with very violent and degrading scenes. This little “precautionary measure” exists just to ensure that all of our readers will have the most enjoyable reading and writing experience we can offer. *winks*

How to start writing in NoInk

It’s easy as creating an account on social media platforms!

To start writing, log in to your registered Kapamilya account. If you do not have one, you can set up one by signing up to the Kapamilya Accounts website. There are also other ways on logging in like log in via Facebook or log in through mobile. To sign up with a Kapamilya account, you will also be given three options: Sign up via Facebook, email, and mobile. It is up to you, our dear user, on how you will create and sign in your Kapamilya accounts to start your adventure with us!

Submitting a story, poem, or article

Once you now have your own profile, you can now start writing your story and submit it to us! To do this, follow these steps:

1. From the menu button (3 lines), click “My Profile”. This is where you can set up your author’s profile based on your customization preferences. PRO TIP: Setting up a good author’s profile can help you attract readers and they can also connect with you easily as well, especially when you include your social media accounts on your profile.

2. When you’re done setting up your author’s profile, you can now go to the “My Works” option. When you land on that page, you can see a green “Create” button. Click that and it will redirect you to a page where you can input the first details of your story. “Format” will give you the option to submit content as features (article), stories, videos, and/or audiobooks. Meanwhile, “Genre” will give you variety on how you want to classify your writing submission. You can also add tags manually to make your content more discoverable on the website.

3. Once you have finished the first page on the “My Works” section, you can now click “next” and it will transfer you to a page where you can now start writing your stories, poems, and articles.

Easy, right?

Benefits on being published in NoInk

NoInk supports the interaction between writers and readers. This is why we have established a comment section on every page in a story / poetry / article submission. Also, NoInk is under ABS-CBN Books and is the online counterpart of the brand. Once your story gets published on NoInk, you become a part of the ABS-CBN Books family.

Aside from the ones stated above, being published in NoInk also gives you a wider audience because we share links of stories and chapter updates on our social media handles, along with ABS-CBN Books’. This gives a writer the opportunity to become more recognized and discovered by our followers and readers.

Lastly, NoInk is also one way for an author’s work to be published on print – yes, it’s the physical book we’re talking about! We believe that every author has that dream and we are here to help you little by little in reaching your dreams.
