Your Story Interactive


Your Story Interactive, creators of Romance Club – the #1 Interactive Fiction Game in the Russian Market – has an exciting remote opportunity to join our Romance Writers’ Room crafting fresh and original episodic interactive fiction for the English-speaking market. We’re looking for incredibly talented writing pros that are interested in bringing their voice to a new mobile platform for romantic graphical fiction! All genres are on the table—sci-fi, fantasy, western, comedy, horror, you name it—as long as your stories have characters that readers will fall for and steamy romances that will leave them wanting more. We’re aiming to be the HBO or Netflix Originals of interactive romance fiction, and we need the best to help us make that happen.

What you’ll do:

* Take ownership of your story and its world
* Craft a brilliant long-term, multi-season plot
* Write branching dialogue and narration
* Be open to feedback, and work changes into the story as needed
* Make sure your copy is clean and error free for publication
* Keep your readers wanting more
* Make your readers swoon (the art team can help with this one)
* Make your readers cry (on occasion, as required)
* Tell the art and sound teams what your story needs for each chapter
* Provide feedback on assets as they are created

Who you are:

* Wickedly creative and a master of snappy dialogue
* A worldbuilder, ready to amaze readers with how well-thought-out your stories are
* Self-driven and good at self-managing your time to meet writing deadlines
* A fast learner, quick to pick up and run with new workflows
* Well-established in writing fiction (3+ years experience)
* Willing and able to work in the 17+ romance genre (including LGBTQ romances)
* Ready to get started

(*** Please note this role is NOT for sexually explicit content. We do ROMANCE. ***)
