Introducing the NEAR Writers Collective

Guild Name: NEAR Writers Collective

Guild Leader: @aria

Guild DAO: near-writers-collective.sputnik-dao.near

Mission and Vision

The NEAR ecosystem is booming, and as more projects are launching, the need for skilled crypto writers is growing. The NEAR Writers Collective aims at being a content hub for NEAR projects looking to commission content pieces to market their products. The guild will on the one hand provide excellent and edited content to NEAR projects, and on the other, will provide writers with opportunities to get commissioned and be trained and guided by experienced content writers in the space.

The guild’s activities can then be summarized as follows:

  • Help NEAR projects source their content (introductory pieces, guides, announcements, regular blog posts, etc…)
  • Onboarding and mentorship of writers
  • Matching writers with opportunities

Who is the guild intended for?

The NEAR Writers Collective is a guild for writers interested in getting access to writing gigs on the NEAR ecosystem. It’s a great starting point for experienced crypto writers to get access to a network of projects and a community of like-minded people and a great way for less experienced writers to get started as crypto writers.

The Value That NEAR Writers Collective Delivers

There is a dire need for skilled crypto writers in the NEAR ecosystem. DeFi is booming and the demand for writers is currently not being met. The NEAR Writers Collective aims at solving this problem by creating a collective of skilled writers that can take commissions and deliver an exceptional result. The NEAR Writers Collective’s strength lies in providing a service that is not being offered in the space. It is going to simplify the life of creators looking to market their products and that of writers looking for opportunities.

Next Steps

On the 6th of January, I wrote a forum post to test the waters and check how many people would be interested in accessing writing opportunities in the NEAR ecosystem. I was contacted by over 20 experienced and emerging writers that would be interested in writing for NEAR projects. The next step for the NEAR Writers Collective would be to conduct interviews with writers to form a core group that can be matched with writing opportunities and guided through the writing process. After that, I will start a campaign to promote the NEAR Writers Collective and get projects on board as well as strike strategic partnerships with @NEARWEEK and @Better platform. Lastly, I will start building a repository of resources for writers, tutorials, resources to get started on crypto, and schedule workshops for writers.

hi there!
I am a beginner here, and would love to join the Writers Collective
one of my digital art researches is based on asemic writing, it goes from ASCII and Unicode characters used for both figurative and abstract drawings to forced multi language accentuation using “Zalgo”, so sometimes I make text go beyond the text boxes like this ﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞ o̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗̗ﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞﱞ རྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭྭ แ๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎๎ ꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠꥠ
