Happy Holidays! Today we put live our last big update of the year, and our goodie bag is chock full of improvements and fixes. As usual, our biggest changes came directly from you, the users.


At Zerys, we take user feedback very seriously, and in response to several requests, we made two large changes to our Writer Audition system. First, the word count on Writer Audition projects can now be set up to 800 words, up from the previous limit of 250 words. This will allow you to get a much better idea of the capabilities of each writer that you audition, and it will give the writers a chance to demonstrate the depth of their knowledge of your topic. Auditions are still free, and you only pay if you choose to add the writer to your Favorite Writers list AND choose to pay for their audition piece. We have also added the ability to sample just 2 writers, in addition to the previously available options 3, 4, and 5. This should speed up your auditions, while still giving you a bare minimum of 2 writers to compare and see which you like the best. Of course, you can always add more writers to an in-progress audition by clicking the “Add” button in the “Find Writers” column of that project’s row on the Project Dashboard.


We believe both of these changes will vastly improve the user experience when conducting auditions, and please feel free to let us know how they work out for you. See below for other improvements and fixes, and see you next year!
