A Django app to accept literary submissions.

Multi-format submission accepting platform.

Quick start

  1. Add “submitify” to your INSTALLED_APPS setting like this:


    Ensure that you have django.contrib.auth added as an application as well.

  2. Include the submitify URLconf in your project like this:

    url(r'^submitify/', include('submitify.urls')),
  3. Run python migrate to create the submitify models.

  4. Start the development server.

  5. Visit to see the app.

Notes for the pluggable application

The standalone application is basically ready to use as one would normally run a Django app, but the pluggable application has a few more things to note.

  • Submitify hooks into the Django permissions system. Creating a new call-for-submissions requires the submitify.add_call permission, so publishers should be added to a group with that permission.

  • Submitify is designed, loosely, for a site using Bootstrap, so elements are classed as such, but this is designed to not be a hard requirement. To that end, some styles are defined within the templates.

  • Applications must implement the ability to add users as readers/invite users as writers. A form for doing such is available at submitify.forms.InviteForm. The view should look something like this:

    def view_user(request, username=None):
        user = get_object_or_404(User, username=username)
        invite_calls_reading = []
        invite_calls_writing = []
        if request.user.is_authenticated and request.user != user:
            invite_calls_reading = request.user.submitify_calls_editing.filter(
            invite_calls_writing = request.user.submitify_calls_reading.filter(
        invite_reader_form = InviteForm(initial={
              'user': user,
        invite_reader_form.fields['calls'].queryset = invite_calls_reading
        invite_writer_form = InviteForm(initial={
              'user': user,
        invite_writer_form.fields['calls'].queryset = invite_calls_writing
        return render(request, 'view_profile.html', {
              'invite_reader_form': (invite_reader_form if
                                   len(invite_calls_reading) > 0 else None),
              'invite_writer_form': (invite_writer_form if
                                   len(invite_calls_writing) > 0 else None),

    The template should look something like:

    {% if invite_reader_form %}
        <form method="post" action="{% url 'submitify:invite_reader' %}">
            {% csrf_token %}
            {{ invite_reader_form.user }}
            <div class="form-group">
                <label for="id_calls">Invite user as a reader to...</label>
                {{ invite_reader_form.calls }}
    {% endif %}
    {% if invite_writer_form %}
        <form method="post" action="{% url 'submitify:invite_writer' %}">
            {% csrf_token %}
            {{ invite_writer_form.user }}
            <div class="form-group">
                <label for="id_calls">Invite user as a writer to...</label>
                {{ invite_writer_form.calls }}
    {% endif %}
