Author Requirements

We are thrilled that you are interested in writing for Novis Opera, and looking are looking forward to reading your material. There are some important things to note before you sign on to the project. As a writer, you must be open to the following things, you wish to work with us:

  • Responsiveness - You must be willing to respond to texts, emails or phone calls in a timely fashion. We understand you may not always answer immediately, but taking days or weeks to answer a question is unacceptable.

  • Constructive Criticism -You must be able to take suggestions in stride without taking them personally.

  • Editing -You must be willing to except changes made in your work if they are required for the sake of time or content.

  • Collaboration -In certain projects, such as Garfield’s Crossing, working with other writers is necessary. You must be willing to respect what others have written before you and be open to your writing (characters, locations, etc.) being expanded upon by other writers.

  • Social media - We recognize that social media can be a thorny place to navigate and, at times, even treacherous. We will always give our collaborators proper credit, while trying to respect their privacy. Be clear with us as to what you are willing to share or not share and we will work with you accordingly. We also appreciate writers who are willing to promote their own work, and the work of others if they are both on the same project. Willingness to share and promote things on social media is as a big plus where we are concerned.
