LoG Development Team

Volunteer with the Project!

Hi everyone!

I’m really passionate about sharing the story I envision and keeping this going, but working full-time means I will have a hard time keeping up with the demand if I do all of this on my own.

If you are interested in volunteering with Legend of Genji (i.e. you won’t be paid) please reach out! Below are the roles I’m hoping to fill and directions.

All volunteers will have their roles and contributions to the story featured on the LoG website / tumblr posts featuring their work. (For reference, the LoG website had 11,000 visitors in the month of June.) For every collaboration, we’ll work out in writing what is expected and what work will be attributed to who. Remember that it’s probably illegal to profit from this project in any way, so this will be entirely volunteer-based.

Writers / Script-writing / Plot Design (2 – 3 People)

Role: Help Macky write a better story! Provide detailed feedback on plot, pacing, dialogue, characterization, villains, character development, and overarching story themes. Draft character overviews, scripts, and episode summaries. Most work done in Google Docs.

Please send to mackydraws@gmail.com:

  1. a brief introduction to who you are / bio
  2. as many creative writing and nonfiction writing samples as you like (If you don’t have any samples, feel free to list any ideas you have for the comic.)
  3. Why you’d like to be involved
  4. Your availability to work on the project (Example: “I can give detailed feedback on episode scripts three times a month.” or “I can draft an ‘episode’ or chapter twice a month.)
  5. Any other information that you want me to know! (past experience, education, what you envision for the project, etc.)

Artists (Color/Shading/Lineart/Design/Backgrounds)

Role: Help Macky publish the comics faster by supporting the drawing process with whatever expertise you have. Note: all art you produce will always belong to you and can be used in your portfolios, on your website, etc.

  1. a brief introduction to who you are / bio
  2. a link to your portfolio / examples of your work

  5. Any other information that you want me to know! (past experience, what you envision for the project, etc.)


Artists (3D Modeling)

Role: Build basic models of buildings / cities / environments in Google Sketchup or equivalent software to support background artists. Note: all art you produce will always belong to you and can be used in your portfolios, on your website, etc.

  1. Is there still an option to volunteer or are all jobs full? I guess the jobs are full. Yeah I am pretty late now… But perhaps it’s worth asking.

    1. Hey Yael! So right now we don’t have any openings on the team, but in the future, keep an eye on this website and our social media profiles for future opportunities 🙂

  2. Is this still relevant? I mean can I still apply or are all jobs full. I am guessing they are full but still, it may be worth asking
