You’ve heard of Zombies, Run! right?
It’s probably the most successful – and certainly the most creative – smartphone health and fitness app in the world and has topped the charts regularly since its launch in 2012. It’s been downloaded over 3 million times and its lead writer and co-creator, Naomi Alderman, has been responsible for the production of five seasons of this amazing game. Now she’s looking for two or three trainee writers to join her and see if they have what it takes to join the writing team for the next season. Story lining, editing, dialogue and ideas – you’ll have the chance to look at all of these skills as part of this traineeship, and if you excel, well, you’ll get an additional fee and a foot in the door of writing for games and the online world.
You’re over 18. You can write. You can plot a story. You can work to deadlines. You can take and give useful criticism. You can travel to London or work via Skype with the team over the course of the traineeship. You have the capacity for a potential trip to Israel in 2017.
If all of those things are all of you – well, what’s stopping you? What you get in return is a fee, a mentor, a network, an AMAZING opportunity. Download the details here and absorb them well. Make your application in good time. Only mail Naomi with a question about the process if you really can’t find the answer you need in the details attached.
Application deadline: Midnight, 31 January 2017.
