Writer application process


Heya and welcome to another PARPG news update 🙂

Writer application process

As you might remember: we were looking for a lead writer for PARPG recently. Quite surprisingly for us, not just one but a couple of writers were interested in filling this role on the team. We considered to use a formal application process to handle this but after quite some discussion on the team we realized that giving writers a formal task to work on might not work out that well in reality due a couple of reasons.

A formal work sample will tell us nothing about the communication skills of a writer. Furthermore a work sample doesn’t really give us any idea how well (s)he can adopt established workflows or if (s)he’s interested in actually helping out with defining these writing workflows/guidelines.

Therefore we decided to invite every interested writer to spend the next four weeks with us working on the game. Writers will brainstorm with the other developers. We will develope a creative vision for the writing department together. You have the chance to contribute with your creativity by fleshing out new writing content (as proposals) or reviewing existing content and revising it with the other developers.

If you’re interested in contributing to the project as writer, please check this article at the wiki where all the details of the process are covered: Writer application process

Next news update scheduled for early February. We can hopefully tell you by then how the writer application process worked out 🙂
