hey there! i'm the sole co-founder of Kakikotoba

update: if you, an affiliate or stranger, can help to spread this journal, i will appreciate it very much! i may leave the group whenever i find two people, or adding in another person (a third) as a stand-in for me and the founder. thanks!

if you haven't noticed, it seems our founder, BRTennant, has left dA. i'm not sure if she will come back, but of course even with her here i have noticed there is no activity with the group whatsoever. i mean we still approved submissions in the Features folder or affiliates' requests, but that's about it.

i haven't wanted to do anything by myself, and seeing how few members there are, events are a bit impossible to do. that's why i would like to find two people (so they can help each other out) who can be a co-founder that keeps the group active/running in terms of events, promotions, and updates. i don't want this group to sit here only as a storage or gallery of literature work. at the end of the application form you fill out below, put Password: novice! so that i know you read this far.

if you wish to apply, please comment in the journal with the following form filled:
(erase my little notes in parentheses)

Position: Co-founder or Contributor (though you'll be a co-founder)
Experience: (your experience as an admin of any groups, especially literature ones. tag them. briefly describe next to it what you did as an admin. lack of experience may not necessarily forfeit you.)
Personality: (gives me a basic idea of how you are like)
Ideas: (give me a minimum of 1-2 potential ideas you may initiate in the group)

i will note the people i accept or interview. this will be open until two people are selected.

thank you for your interest!
This is a feature for our affiliates' contests. You can request to affiliate if you are not already an affiliate.

If you have one that is currently running, note us! When you post your ad here, every future journal by the group will have your contest information featured at the bottom! This way, they will not be missed.

Hey there, I'm a longtime writer who made the jump into professional editing- what would the etiquette be for offering my services to the group?
