Earlier today, I tweeted my idea for a writing band.
The world is ready for a writing band: a lead writer, a poet, two backup writers, an illustrator & an editor. We could practice at my place.— Joel Alexander Dueck (@joeld) February 4, 2013
The group would be the analogue of a rock band. We’d get together with the goal of practicing and producing something within a short time-frame as a group, only instead of music it would be a four-page magazine issue or a children’s book or whatever fits the group’s style. We’d snap photographs of people working, rough drafts with ink, layout mockups and so forth.
The results go up on the web for sale through Gumroad, and any sales get divided equally among band members.
Hey, maybe if we get good enough, we can perform at bookstores and art festivals.
