Consider this a HELP WANTED sign. Yes, we at Apocalypse Weird are looking for writers. Right now we have our TIER ONE writers busily destroying the Apocalypse Weird Universe. We have some TIER TWO writers who’re developing pitches and full stories to set in already-TIER ONE developed areas of the Apocalypse Weird Sandbox.
So, now it’s time for to open up the gates and let everyone play inside our Post Apocalypse. Now its time for the TIER THREE writers to get involved. What’s a TIER THREE writer you ask?
TIER THREE writers will be offering their stories on our Apocalypse Weird: SURVIVORS website (Under Construction). TIER THREE AW: SURVIVOR stories can be: short, novella or even full length novels. Writers can develop their own area of the AW world, or, they can tell a story in one of the books that’s been released. Right now that’s Apocalypse Weird: The Red King and Apocalypse Weird: Texocalypse Now. We have arcs coming out in the next few weeks for our other launch novels.
Basically AW:Survivors is an “audition”. Each page a story is posted on will contain a voting feature. The more votes accumulated the higher chance the story has of being considered for a TIER ONE contract with Wonderment Media/Apocalypse Weird. A TIER ONE contract allows the writer to develop a canon story in a specific region of the AW Universe. The contract offers generous royalties, publication and series potential plus a stake in the AW:Universe.
And… TIER THREE writers can do whatever they want. They’re not bound by the same constraints as the TIER ONE and TWO writers with respect to story and canon. They can tell stories wherever and with whatever characters they like. They can tell alternate universe stories, Twilight Zone Tragedies or even their own version of the Apocalypse Weird. If you’re interested, and we need THREE writers to get started so we have something to post in time for our launch on the 23rd, then head over to the Brand NEW Facebook group Apocalypse Weird: SURVIVORS and moderator Chris Pourteau will get you a world document and answer any questions you have about story development, how we’ll be putting these up and questions in general about AW canon.
A great way to get a handle on what the AW universe is all about is to read the World Document for TIER THREE authors Chris will give you over at Apocalypse Weird: Survivors and then check out our pre-launch novel AW: The Red King.
Hope you’ve got some great ideas because we’re looking. We need writers. Let’s see what you got…
