Interactive Fiction Writers Wanted (Eventually)

Someone I've never met, but whom I've known virtually through the interactive fiction community for many years, is floating ideas for starting a company that produces short works of interactive fiction for the middle-school educational market. Although he's not ready to start hiring yet, I'm blogging this because I think this is a company to watch.

Google Groups : Westfield Chandler Publishing I don't plan to generally ask the IF community for help here. In all of my conversations with the community I have been led to believe that no one is interested in writing short games in a corporate setting. A few people have expressed interest and I will pursue working with them.

So to fill in the gaps I plan to seek writing talent outside of the
community and guide them on what deliverables I seek. I feel strongly
that over time I can find talented writers willing to sign
work-for-hire contracts for short works of fiction. I can develop a
pool of writers large enough to keep content flowing.
