With my current project wrapping up, I'm looking at relaunching Dragon Pulp. It was an experimental poll-based webcomic. The premise was simple: every installment ended with a poll where the readers voted on what plot twist happened next. The next week, I would unveil the new installment and the process would repeat. It was a hectic schedule, but the story lasted about 20 installments and was roughly 80 pages long.
Being an overly ambitious sort of fellow, I'm wanting to take its spirit of radical collaboration to the next level:
Are you the kind of writer that walks away from every movie with a million different ideas for new stories? Do you have more ideas than you could ever hope to write down?
If so, Dragon Pulp may be looking for you. I'm assembling a team of writers for cutting edge collaborative storytelling. As a member of the team, you'll write pitches for how the story will develop and the readers will vote for which pitch they like most. You'll be playing off of other equally creative minds and ultimately crafting a story that none of us could have written alone. It will be challenging- you'll have to think on your feet and make it up as you go along. It'll be loosely controlled chaos and seat-of-your-pants collaboration. It's not for everyone, but if it's for you- it's a rush. For better or worse, the polls mean constant reader feedback.
You'll be paid directly for your work and will also recieve profit shares from any crowdfunding campaigns.
Writers will be selected for the core team based on what assets they can bring; diverse perspectives will be greatly appreciated. Previous experience with fantasy genre projects is preferred, but not required. Our schedule will be hectic, but laid back: if you're not able to contribute to any given installment, it's no biggie.

The deadline for applications is September 14, 2013
, but applications recieved before August 31, 2013 will be given priority. I can be reached for questions at Ram **at** RamLama **dot** com. Best of luck, everybody! If you're not a writer yourself, but know anyone that might be interested, make sure to forward this to them (because we all know how often an artist strolls into the room, says he's looking for writers, and then offers to pay them).
