LoG Development Team Project Developments

Writers Application 2021! (CLOSED)

The Legend of Genji Development Team is looking for 2 talented writers who can help us brainstorm plot elements, proofread and critique scripts, work on character sheets and take on writing and research tasks!

We’re excited to bring new perspectives to the team, and we’re particularly eager to receive applications from people of color and people with disabilities.

The team does not provide monetary compensation, but we can certainly promote your work, provide exposure to a global digital audience, and help you strengthen your artistic skills. Our team is comprised of young professionals in a variety of fields, ranging from consulting to the comic book industry — there may be other ways we can help advance your career!

  1. Wow this looks like such a great opportunity I would love to apply for. How do I go about sending in a application?

    1. Hi! If you click on the Google Form link at the bottom of the article, that’s where you can apply! 😁

  2. I would love to be a writer of ur loG team, if am picked as one of the two writers.

  3. Hey, I was just wondering what you would count as “Proven previos writing experience? Would you mean like some other projects you worked on, a specific course you followed or describing just what experience in Creative writing one has ? I’d love to know a bit more, thanks!

    1. Hi there! Previous writing experience is anything that you’ve done before that taught you how to become a better writer. This can be classes, jobs, projects, partnerships, internships, etc.!

  4. Math skill has bonus points in writers application!? Why?

  5. This is the perfect opportunity for me! I need some experience for college, and I love writing with a passion!

  6. I have written previously, but I unfortunately do not have proof (I can still tell you what classes I took if you want)? Is that okay?

  7. Is there a age limit? Also, what if we don’t have Social media

  8. Hi I can speak german and im very self motivated .
    i like to work on posts write storys and etc.

  9. Hi I have a few clarifying questions if that is alright for you about the Writing Additions;

    For prompt 1; what kind of argument do you want us to write? Do you want us to write a quick short story about two people arguing or do you want us to just randomly write an argument between two people out of thin air?

    For prompt 2; what kind of character should we write about; should we right about someone who is fiction, non-fiction, someone who we just created in our heads? And if so what should we write about them; their likes, dislikes, their life story?

    I don’t mean to be rude or anything, I just want know exactly what you guys are looking for in these auditions.

  10. Hello! I wanted to ask what is the age limit to sign up. I am 11 and I have experience and I have lots of great ideas. I really don’t want this opportunity to pass me.

  11. Sorry I am a 13 year old African boy is it ok if I applied even tho I have school from 07:15 Monday to Friday and also only have discord

  12. Is there a search limit? Cause I am 12 but I am a all time writer and a HUGE Avatar fan! I know EVERYTHING. So please don’t say it is 18 and up. But if you do, it’s completely understandable. Thanks!

  13. Hey, so I’ve seen a lot of comments about age requirements and I know this is kind of late, but I think all that matters is the experience and amount of work you are willing to put into it. It doesn’t matter if you are too young to write because writing has no age limit. Speaking from experience. Even professional settings value experience over age. At fourteen years old, I tend to write a lot and have gotten a name around my school and friend group for being an excellent writer. If anyone here is having second doubts about applying because of their age, know that it doesn’t matter and the only thing that does is your enjoyment.

    I’m not on the team or anything btw I’m just putting this out because I feel like a lot of us have doubts like these based on certain grouped factors.

  14. hi! I’m a 11 year old. And I think I’m the #1 Most HUGEST Avatar fan in the UNIVERSE!!!!!
    I can’t wait for LOG!
