Torn World Seeks Contributors

I'm pleased to announce that one of my long-term projects is now accessible: Torn World is a shared-world fantasy and it has just opened for contributors. ellenmillion has written a post over on crowdfunding explains a little about the project and how you can get involved. There are opportunities for people to contribute art, writing, and other creative support. There are also various options for cyberfunded creativity/crowdfunding, so you can earn money (and perks) or give those things to people whose work you love.

So far, I've done a lot of behind-the-scenes work with ellenmillion on website beta-testing, story editing, and general idea-bouncing. This is her world at heart, and it's lovely of her to share it with us. I'm also part of the team developing the Torn Tongue language family, along with padparadscha and other folks. I've written a couple of poems that should appear onsite eventually. (Be patient, there is still a ton of stuff to upload, so it will roll out in phases.) Please drop by and take a look! The big publicity push is scheduled for January 1, 2010, when Torn World will be opened to the general public. Right now we're mainly looking for more writers, artists, and people who'd like to help with the administrative work.
