We’re Alive looking for writers? There’s going to be a book?

Have you heard? We’re Alive is looking at the idea of bringing in outside writers to expand the We’re Alive universe in book form. There’s going to be friggin book! From the details released so far it looks like submissions will be taken then reviewed. Below are some excerpts from Kc Wayland’s post on the We’re Alive forums.

I am looking for writers to expand upon the universe in more book form


The writer would essentially work hand and hand with myself but what’s written essentially is owned by the company.


I’m going to be opening it up as open submission thing.


The core of the submission needs to be a good scene or scenes that work together. I look at We’re Alive like a balance of exposition, action, adventure, mystery, fun, and reality (heartbreaking at it may be). Don’t try to cram an entire book into 5 pages either, I want it to be almost it’s own short chapter. Has to have at least one character, and they gotta do something.


This is not fully ironed out yet but we expect it will be soon. There’s also a slew of legal hurdles that need to be addressed so we don’t up with another Spawn vs Neil Gaiman fiasco.
