A lot of writing team sign-ups I saw were either closed, inactive, or well-established, so I decided to open a new one! I We could work on any genre, but I think working collaboratively for fantasy would be fun (but it’ll be whatever the majority agrees on). I’ve run successful writing groups before, and it’s always been enjoyable, so if you’re looking for an exciting project to take on, this writing team might just be for you!! I also haven’t done this kind of collaboration in a while, so I’m excited.
Here are the roles (click the role for detailed responsibilities):
Outline Writer (NOT AVAILABLE)
Brainstorming ideas, creative detailed outlines for the other writers, making sure the story is cohesive and has no plotholes, work with deadlines, and collaborating. Creative, clever, openminded, and thoroughly plan things.
Story Writer (Directing & Dialogue)
Writes the story on the Episode platform using the outline created. Can direct well, can follow a specific style and tone, and can write from different perspectives, work with deadlines, also open to feedback. If you want, you can also just pick to work on directing or dialogue if the other is not your comfort zone.
Editor/Beta Reading (NOT AVAILABLE)
Will review the entire story on the writing portal and via phone (or web previewer is okay) and fix any issues (technical) or pass it on to the writers to fix (story-wise). Good grammar, fluent at English, observant, has a decent grip on Episode’s code.
Create graphics such as covers, backgrounds, splashes, special art scene, social media, etc. Can work with deadlines while maintaining high quality, creative, is decently experienced with graphic design (preferably Photoshop so collaboration can work, but anything adequate is okay.)
Marketing Team/Social Media (NEEDED)
Social media work, hype the story, post updates, create a following, seek new ways to spread the story. Must be innovative, creative, and has a good sense of the team/story’s vision. Must either: have a good comprehension of Engilsh or decent grasp of graphic design (must be Photoshop).
Sorry if any of the above sounds too serious. It won’t be too serious, I promise! You can select more than one role and more than one person will work on each (depends on the sign-ups).
Answer these questions to sign up: (You can DM if you’d like)
Name (what you would like to be called)
Role(s) you want
What qualifications do you have (i.e. if you want to be a writer, maybe show stories you’ve written?, for artist, show artwork)
Age (don’t have to disclose, just confirm if you’re above 13)
Will you be committed?
Three words to describe you (for fun)
Once you’re accepted, I’ll privately message you where we can exchange information (such as emails).
Along with outlining and marketing (maybe artist, but only if there aren’t enough people), I’ll act as “producer,” but don’t be intimidated by that title, it’s just to oversee things to make sure everything is working out smoothly and different subgroups are working fluidly with each other (and because I love working out project logistics ).
Some info I haven’t included yet:
Age: above 13
Genre preference: Fantasy, mystery, thriller, some romance
Will I be committed? Absolutely!
Three words: creative, idealist, introverted
My current method of communication is Google hangouts (as it has direct access to things such as Google Drive where we would do the writing and keep all the files), but if you have another suggestion (aside from Instagram as I find it limited for collaborating thoroughly), let me know!
I hope this will be fun!
