‘…No matter how I go, I want it reported that I drowned in moonlight, strangled by my own bra.’
— Carrie Fisher

Visual Innovations

In December, we released User View 3.0 , increasing responsiveness across the platform — plus, we think it looks good. You’ll notice updated Profile Info and Settings, new Drop Down Menus, and improvements to our Following Pages, Notifications, and Submission Lists.

Public View is a powerful tool, offering organizations the ability to visually share submissions and collect ratings. This feature is constantly improving — the latest additions promote social sharing with image previews for Facebook, Twitter, and Google+, as well as direct linking throughout every gallery.

Case Studies

Submittable is always excited to hear from you — how can we improve and how can we help you improve? We’ve been collecting case studies from innovative organizations like National Geographic, SANDOW, and Glimmer Train. If you’d like to be considered for a feature of this kind, email newsletter@submittable.com.

Blog

In December, our guest blog included a tribute to Google’s new universal font by Nat Newman, and an interview with Sarah Kahn and Bracha Tenenbaum of Free Verse, a non-profit serving incarcerated youth through creative writing.

Submittable’s blog also offers useful content for high-level organizations in all fields. Last month, we considered the definition of contemporary publishing and examined the psychology of image-driven media harnessed by public-voting contests.
