It’s time to officially retire #funemployment 2K14. I just heard back from TWO different jobs that both want me!
I’ll be posting more details shortly!
I’m considering launching a trans writing project. The idea is a tumblr where everyone under the trans umbrella would be welcome to submit fiction (or non-fiction), no matter their skill level, about trans characters or their experiences regarding being trans etc. Whatever they want. I just thought it would be nice to have a community specifically for trans people & creative writing.
It’s something I’ve been thinking about for some time, but I probably wouldn’t really have time to moderate such a community by myself, so I’m looking for potential moderators to help.
I think I’d like two to start with, preferably a non-binary person and a trans woman. I would like at least one dmab trans person involved. It’s preferable if you’re a writer, but a keen reader may also be considered (as a lot of moderating will be reading content).
Moderators would be responsible for reading submissions and making sure that they are within guidelines (which we can draw up together) and tagging triggering content appropriately. You may also be responsible for answering asks, but I’m not really looking to make this an advice blog (if we start getting a lot of asks for advice, we could always set up a separate blog). Submissions should not and will not be judged on spelling or grammar, we’ll be screening for troll posts & unacceptable or oppressive content.
Moderators will have to be comfortable with working closely with myself (a trans guy) and one other person (perhaps more if it takes off) both on tumblr and using private messaging (Skype).
The tumblr I have set up is transpeoplewrite, so if you’re interested in a trans writing community, please feel free to follow (although nothing is set up yet and it might take a few weeks to get started).
If you are interested in being a moderator, please send me an ask or you can e-mail me at email@example.com
A signal boost would be appreciated!
I hate when people I care about are sad and there is nothing I can do. It’s such an awful feeling.
