So if you follow me on twitter you may have seen my postings for the following:
Contributing Writers Wanted: Must writer YA and have a good grip on dialogue
Content Editor Wanted: Must write YA and be good at catching errors
Marketing Associate Wanted: No exp. necessary, must be a social networking guru
I've been tweeting around the clock and now I'm finally ready to share what they are for.
I am developing a YA Series for my blog which will feature bi-weekly episodes (blogisodes) written by myself and a group of contributing writers.
It will be a weekend afternoon of work for a body of work that could server as a really good writing sample, and even a pub credit if the story is later complied into an ebook (just an idea I'm bouncing around)
So here's are some of the specifics:
Genre: YA Contemporary (This is a new one for me)
Length: 3 to 5K per blogisode
Time frame: Bi-Weekly Posts
I am in the final stages of drafting the pilot blogisode and story lines. And there a few rules to this series to ensure it's originality
- No Parents
- No Teachers
- No Jocks
- No Cheerleaders
- and No Creatures of any kind
(I know! Para/UF peeps, don't worry there will definitely be a Para/UF Series in the future)
So if you're up for the challenge of writing a YA drama worthy enough for the screen, but tailor made for web; please join me for one of the info sessions.
April 29th 4pm PST/ 7pm EST
May 1st 9am PST/12pm EST
Writers of all levels are welcome, but to ensure we are on the same page, writing samples and selective reading will be required.
