As Editor, I am supposed to make this site (specifically the front page) fun, fresh, and exciting. Sadly, I cannot always deliver great content on a weekly basis. My own blog has not had a post since May of last year. That may change in the future, but FFDO need not suffer for my lack of inspiration. Not once I finish forming the FFDO A-Team at least.
What is the FFDO A-Team? That is the team of volunteer writers that will work under my supervision providing the whole #FridayFlash community with interesting articles, interviews, and information once a month. Each of these writers will get a chance to address everyone here on FFDO about events and findings from around the world. These topics could be almost anything, as long as it relates to writing, flash fiction, publishing, or tools that may be helpful to writers in general.
Does this sound like something you would be interested in doing? Do you want a chance to share your interesting finds? Can you commit to one 250-1000 word article per month? Do you have a passion for informing your fellow writers? Have you participated in #FridayFlash? Then you may be just what I am looking for on my team.
Now, there could be a flood of people that want to do this, and I would be very happy if that were the case. Based on the number of people that are interested, I may offer a contest (potentially the biggest in FFDO history) to narrow the field. For now, that remains to be seen. Remember, this is a monthly commitment, but I am pretty flexible about when articles can go up and what not.
If interested, send me a message (edjohnson/fridayflash/org) with the subject line of “FFDO A-Team.” In the body, tell me what kind of articles you would be most interested in writing and why. That is all there is to it. If a whole bunch of people are interested (and I welcome this), I will hand pick sixteen for a contest. Any less than that, and I will have to save the contest idea for another time. And that would make me a sad panda, so everyone should try to join the FFDO A-Team.
