I have received several inquiries in the past, such as 'I don't know how to send a manuscript in script format only for text.' In the case of applying for the original script, I tried to summarize the procedure and precautions as to what kind of data should be sent. If you are interested in applying for manga, please see ' Application Procedures '.

A blank page will be displayed, so copy and paste the contents of the manuscript to complete the manuscript preparation. Click 'Share' in the upper right.

Click 'Copy Link' in 'Get Link'

At this time, change the sharing setting to 'Everyone who knows the link' and make sure that it is 'Viewer'. If this is 'Restricted', the application cannot be accepted because it cannot be opened even if the application is completed.
