Wanted: Newsletter Editor/Writer
Posted 24 April 2005 - 03:56 PM
we are planning to set up a monthly newsletter for Myriad Islands and therefore are in need of a talented writer.
In case you aren't familiar with the mod, Myriad Islands is an open community map project for GTA Vice City and the upcomming San Andreas, that works as follows: A set of empty, green islands is split up into single lots, which modders can reserve and use to build whatever they want (following some loose stylistic guidelines). So it's not one of those boring total conversions, it's a living and growing city.
It's still to be decided what goes into the newsletter, but basically that will be a summary of the last month's happenings, an article about a topic of current interest, an interview, maybe a guest article, and some project and release reviews.
You don't necessarily have to be a modder. You are responsible for editing all articles generated by your assitants, writing articles based on information collected by them, and maybe write your own monthly column or a fictional story (taking place in Myriad).
So if you are interested in keeping this project up and running (and not tend loose motivation after 2 issues), have good writing, editing and proofreading skills and the ability to work in a team (of n00bs ), please apply either in this thread or our newsletter thread.

I'll admit I don't know a lot about modding, but have a read over it, and PM me if you're interested.

Don't get me wrong, I like the other ideas, I just don't think they should get the upper hand. A monthly recap helps to keep an overview of what's going on. Wich is getting really necessary and is imo the most important. If it's in addition with the other stuff, no problem.
Edit: I'll post this in the other topic too, since I don't think many Myriad watchers tend to read the Writer's discussion.
