Anything that's on topic but doesn't fit elsewhere, including related events that might be of interest to quizbowl players (KMO, Science Bowl, etc).

Set Writing Collaboration Thread-2018-2019 Season

Post by 1992 in spaceflight » Sat Jun 09, 2018 3:46 pm

Hello everyone,

I figured now would be a good time to post a thread for collaborating on writing sets for the upcoming year. If you would be interested in collaborating with a team or are an existing set who would like to have some more writers, now would be a good time to post looking for assistance.

Let's get to collaborating and figuring out plans for high school housewrites, quizbowl!

I would love to have people write for Solo and Masonics. The Masonics set needs everything except fine arts and has something resembling a standard distribution with lots of math. The Solo set needs 20 questions in each of several subcategories, and the subcategories currently available are physics, math, other science, world history, myth, and geography. Masonics pays $1.75 per question, and Solo does not pay but can get you a free mirror. I'm hoping all the writing can be done over the summer, though it can go into the early school year.

If you work for me, you work on a good system for submitting questions, and you work with one of the best editors (Jonah) and me.

Hey everyone,

It looks to me like we could use another set that's available by early November in the fall, and a few more sets for use in the Spring. If anyone is thinking about reaching out and getting collaborators for a set, now is a good time to do so.
