WRITER? READER? IS THERE REALLY A DIFFERENCE? BE EITHER. BE BOTH. BE MORE, TOGETHER.
Much like a television series, Writers begin with a pilot. We publish "log lines", a synopsis, and a sample of the story. Then we seek an audience who wants to see this story produced. Using digital marketing tools and social engagement, we let the people who are waiting for what we're writing know it exists. We invite them to engage in the story we're creating. We ask them to read.
Much like a television audience, Readers browse the premises and sample the shows. We snack on the previews to get a feel for the voice and see if we feel captured. If the story grips us, maybe we binge on all the episodes already there. We "Spark It" to encourage the writer to release the next episode. We comment and discuss the stories with the writers and each other.
As we build the ecosystem and world of each story through the writing, stories can spawn other creative outpourings, such as video, audio readings, illustrations, music, fashion, graphics, alternate or expanded story lines, character backgrounds, and more. Writers and Readers engage together to build out the worlds that are created and bring the stories to life through multi-media. This is the fun part!
