Composition is Recruiting!

Missing Worlds Media’s Composition Department is looking for a few good writers! If you are a focused, energetic, creative person with excellent writing skills, this may be the position for you.

Writers in the Composition Department undertake numerous tasks, as assigned by team management. Writers may be asked to create their own content that matches the baseline of the world we are making, be assigned to work with previously created concepts where consistency across the team is key, or both.

We are currently searching for new writers to join our Bullpen. Bullpen writers are assigned tasks by the Composition management team, which can range from “draft up 5 NPCs” to “take over writing duties on this half-finished mission.” It’s not always glamorous, but what writing gig is? More seriously, working as a Bullpen writer will teach you to exercise your creativity in a focused, disciplined way, which is the hallmark of professional writing.

Writers at Missing Worlds Media are expected to be able to complete assignments in a timely manner. They are also expected to hold true to the shared world that the team has been building since the project’s inception. We ask that our writers respect each other and the ideas that their fellow writers have previously submitted. As this is an ongoing project, we have specific phases in which different parts of the game take priority. Right now is a critical moment for the Composition team, and we need dedicated writers who are willing to put in the time and effort to provide our players an excellent product. We need writers who can commit to deadlines, work with the material we have, and truly join us in creating a shared world unlike any other.

For more information or to apply for a Bullpen Writer position, e-mail Composition Lead Robin Strickland at

for details on the application process. Be sure to include “Applying for Bullpen” in the subject line.

How long does it usually take

How long does it usually take to get a response about the application? I'm in no rush, just curious. I'm a published author in the fantasy/adventure genre and would love to see if I can add anything of value to CoT. I already emailed the email above, just wondering on response ETA?

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.

I submitted my application

I submitted my application last November. Haven't heard back yet (13 months) despite several attempts to contact them. So, I'm sure if they like it they will tell you.


I like to take your ideas and supersize them. This isn't criticism, it is flattery. I come with nothing but good will and a spirit of team-building. If you take what I write any other way, that is probably just because I wasn't very clear.

We reply to all the inquiries

We reply to all the inquiries we receive. If you did not receive a response, please check your email filters, and then email robin again. He does get a LOT of emails, so sometimes something may get overlooked. Also, if you don't receive a response, you can always PM me here and I can inquire with him directly to verify receipt of your communication.

Please don't hesitate to send up a flare, or smoke signals, or whatever.

We had known problems with emails getting lost back then. Anyone who contacted us prior to around September, please try again.

Has anyone seen my mind? It was right here...

Yes, please don't operate on

Yes, please don't operate on negative feedback. If you don't get a reply, keep trying until someone tells you to stop calling and stop sending us mail and stop showing up at all hours. This is a restraining order. Do any of these things again and we'll call the cops.

Then send e-mails cause that wasn't in the the original restraining order. It'll be in the second one though and the judge will not be amused by you finding a loop hole.

Dang it, Grimfox, that's more money for the lawyers. And I swear we closed that loophole.

I'm wondering if Robin is

I'm wondering if Robin is still with MWM? Profile says hasn't been on in over a month and a week and no one seems to be getting reply emails...

All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.

It's not uncommon for active

It's not uncommon for active devs to not post on the forums for prolonged periods. I've a list of 20+ devs however, most don't frequently post. There are more devs beside those in my list.

Robin is still around. I "spoke" with him yesterday. We have had quite a few applications since that update, but I will poke him about them today.

And understand that course of action is not normal for business these days. You submit a web form, you hear nothing, then you get a response two to three weeks after the person they hired is on the job.

Well I'd absolutely love to be a part of this, and I'll be free for most of the summer with nothing to do. I'm able to commit to the project, and would be willing to take on as much of the load as needed.

I've sent you a message -- let me know if I should send an email instead. Just didn't know if it was still the right person to send to.

That sounds like that would be Amerikatt's equivalent of Kryptonite... or at least a very diabolical torture chamber for her. :(

Seriously? That's it? If I

Seriously? That's it? If I did that to my feline mistress, she would just sit there, look me in the eye and say to me, "Are you kidding me!?!?" Do it right. Or else." Gives a little flex of her claws and waits for me to play the Right Way.

Make him pay for going overboard there Americatt. Or you could just spit some of those special furballs at the lasers.
