Small question: What exactly are we sending to [email protected]?  Is it a story, an application, or something else?


Every story has an ending, none of which composed by the main character.
Never allow one to be your priority, while allowing yourself to be their option.

Agreed, I am a writer and I would love to make an contribution to the place.

Indeed, I have read through the post and found it confusing too.  ^-^

I assume it's a story link in Google Docs and so have done that. The post also mentioned making sure all judges are to have permissions to view? I assume they will give us a list of those so we can allow them to see the Google Doc. Anyhow I'm sure it will all work out  :D

Good luck to everyone else who tries to get on the writing team!

"Examples must be at least one page in length"

When you say this does it mean you would like an example of our work?
Or should we write up a few paragraphs explaining why we would be good for the job, using previous experience to back up what we say?

Halcyon

I'm going with an example of our writing.

Lucky I have a fanfic in progress to help

As for an example of previous qualification how do we note that? Just say so? (I only ask because attachments wont be read)

AnthroYuu

I guess you just mark down everything they want in the email, and the one page example is of that of your work.  That's what I'm going to do.

Hi all! Sorry for the confusion. We are, indeed, looking for a sample of your writing. I've updated the post and made the really important parts bold. Let me know if you have any more questions.

Good luck!

And the single page of creative writing can be anything? Or should we keep it MLP related?

AnthroYuu

I feel it could be anything, but I used an MLP theme just to be safe.

Thanks for clearing that up! So just need to know who to give permissions too  ^-^

If you are referring to the google document, I think setting the doc to "Anyone with the link can view" and emailing that link is the best way to go :)

That's the method I used as well.  I'm glad to know I didn't mess up there.

Supersnot

Ah that's the ticket! New to Google Docs, thanks for the help  0:)

Hi. I'd like to apply as a writer, but I haven't done anything in english. Should I create a one-shot for the google doc, or translate one of my fics?  :P

DeceptiveCadance

Could an example of writing be a series of quest dialogue or something?

Can it be anything writing related? Or does it have to be a story?  :s
