Our December theme is PLOT TWISTS. In addition to exclusive teaching tools from a bestselling author, an exclusive writing contest, and a live chat with a publishing pro, this month’s box will include something to slap on that beloved laptop, a stationary item, the perfect editing pen, and something warm to sip on. Get Scribbler, and get serious!

Q: I am an aspiring playwright and wondered if any boxes ever dealt with that genre? Thanks! (Or even dialogue)Asked by Valerie V., May 2021
Thanks for your question! Our box is specifically for novelists, but it does cover themes such as point-of-view, characters, theme, setting, plotting, etc. which I think would be helpful to playwrights since you're dealing with a very similar story structure as novelists. I might suggest getting a one month subscription to see how you like it, and canceling if it doesn't help as much as you'd like. Even if it doesn't fit your needs perfectly, you'd still be up some teaching materials from writers at the top of their game as well as exclusive writing goodies (like pens, notebooks, writing snacks, etc.) that all writers enjoy. ;)
Q: A couple of years ago one of the boxes had a “Bestseller in Progress” coaster. Anyone know where to find that? Thank you!! Asked by Ama L., March 2021
Hi Ama! We're so happy to hear you loved our Bestseller in Progress coaster. We don't have any plans to restock this item at the moment, but we have additional writer goodies available at our online shop. Happy writing!
Q: I am a poet. From looking at the past boxes, it looks like these items are meant for writers of prose. Do the box contents provide resources for poets?Asked by Melanie H., December 2020
Thanks for your question! Our box is specifically for fiction novelists, but it does cover themes such as point-of-view, characters, theme, setting, etc. which might be helpful to you as a poet. I might suggest getting a one month subscription to see how you like it, and canceling if it doesn't help as much as you'd like. Even if it doesn't fit your needs perfectly, you'd still be up some teaching materials and writing goodies (like pens, notebooks, writing snacks, etc.) that all writers enjoy. ;)
Q: I am interested in writing scifi, horror, like Stephen king and twilight zone. Would this be a good box for me to subscribe to?Asked by Pam K., July 2020
Hi Scribbler! Thanks for your question! We cover a wide range of writing topics in our boxes, but most themes can be applied to any genre. Themes like, "How to Write a Great Hook," or "Perfecting Your Ending," or "Creating Memorable Characters." Our goal is to keep you motivated, improve your writing, and educate you on your publishing options so you can churn out that next Stephen King style book. Keep writing, Scribbler!
It’s not specific to a genre, but to the skills of becoming a better writer. This month’s box contained two books in genres I would never have personally picked up. With the author’s comments in the passport that accompanies one of the books, I have learnt so much from a source I would have dismissed because it’s not the genre I write. My writing is better, because Scribbler makes me look outside my comfort zone.
Terrible. My kid didn’t enjoy it.
Very unimpressive. It was supposed to be a Christmas gift, but for the price I paid, it was extremely lackluster. One (count it, ONE) stroopwafel, a few mini packets with information that could be found online, an Amazon paper with some unintelligible scrawl on it, and a book. I agree with others—I could have put together a much nicer curated gift, and I highly regret my purchase.
Each monthly delivery of this box is like Christmas morning! There are so many goodies in each box - treats like coffee/tea/hot chocolate, snacks, a journal or notepad or book of writing prompts, pens and stickers and pins and writer’s favorite things. But most importantly is the monthly novel (with signed bookplate), an inside look at the Publishing Process and an Exclusive Writing Passport (I. Want. Them. ALL!!!!! Lol, but for real - I do) penned by each month’s author (who better to get perspective from, right?!?!). There are Exclusive Online Chats each month, and somehow Victoria and Lindsay find a way to sprinkle in all kinds of inspiration and encouragement. I have NEVER been disappointed, not one single time, but I have been giddy like a schoolgirl over my box. Keep up the GREAT WORK LADIES!!!!!
Everything in it makes for a balance. I just finished my first 200 word short story, and I can't wait to try the coffee on my next weekend off. I'm so looking forward to using the tools.
I love this box, it's really great, look forward to the next one.
I just received my first box and I was not impressed. I will get the next one and see if its better. Not much for what you pay for🤷♀️
I never received my package after paying for it
Was so pleased with everything in this box - it was a whole bunch of goodies! The recipient was excited by the gift and just as thrilled.
This is a great box and was put together well.
Great subscription box geared toward the writer / reader! Each monthly box is built around a carefully chosen theme. The book, writerly advice and inside publishing booklet are great for writers to see the theme in action. And the bookish goodies are an amazing plus!
