As part of this year’s International Day of Femslash we are looking to recruit a team of people interested in creating a smallscale ARG to run over the weekend prior to IDF (date to be confirmed). Whether you’re a seasoned ARG-pro – like our team leader – or a total newbie – like me – we need your help. We have just over four months to create this little endeavour and that means getting started right away, with a view to running an even bigger event next year once we’ve built up a little experience and discovered just how much fun it can be.
Writers, video editors, graphic artists, website designers, vocal artists, plot-bunny specialists, twitterites, facebookians, tumblrers, tea fetchers… are all very welcome and will help shape the very core of our ARG.
If you’re interested please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with a subject line of ARG and your name will be added to the team roster.
An ARG (Alternate Reality Game) is a type of narrative (story) that requires the reader/fan/audience to interact and provide part of the story. This may be in the form of working with other fans to solve a puzzle, or talking to a character from the story to learn some of the story. ARGs vary in the amount and type of audience interaction required. Check out Brooke Thompson’s article for more information.
