As most of you who read this blog will know already, Lloyd Shepherd (notDavies) & I (notCarruthers) failed to reach our funding target on Unbound, so will not be pursuing the idea of turning riddleofthesands.net into a book + web adventure.
This leaves me somewhat unemployed at the moment. So if anyone out there has any work for me, please let me know.
I’m an experienced copywriter, scriptwriter, development producer, project manager, workshop facilitator and trainer with a specialisation in interactive storytelling, and over 20 years’ experience of devising, developing and deploying complex crossplatform projects. My Linkedin profile is here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/tim-wright-74972
Yes, I do have a few projects of my own I’d like to pursue (the internet of plants, more Blake-related stuff, more walks, more digital literature), but so far I haven’t found funding for any of them. In the meantime, I need to make a living. So if you hear of anything that might suit me, do drop me a line.
FYI - Lloyd are still very much interested in taking old books out for adventures, particularly books that are ‘curiously specific about dates and locations’, so the Adventure Club will live on in some shape or form. Just recently we took ‘The War of the Worlds’ by H.G. Wells out for an airing, and used it to wander around Woking, Weymouth & Shepperton.
Here's the resulting podcast, containing several interesting nuggets about space travel, the UK’s first working mosque, the elusive 'Shepperton wave' and the precise height of a Martian tripod:
