compensation: Project-based (budget to be discussed)
employment type: part-time

If you love biographies but don't have time to read or listen to Walter Isaacson's 35 hour behemoth - this is for you.

We are creating a new series of 1-2 hour biographies of amazing historical figures (e.g. Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, Maya Angelou, Ghandi, etc.). We will feature heroes of our culture who each lived their own version of the hero's journey. The challenge will be to honor these stories and deliver them in two hours or less of a narrative-driven, audio experience.

The series will initially create six episodes and we are looking for a lead writer to create the scripts that will ultimately be recorded by a voice actor. You will own all aspects of the creative process - from becoming an expert on the six historical figures, to structuring the arc of their story, to drafting and finalizing the script that will ultimately be recorded.

There are no formal requirements for this project other than being energized by the challenge of telling the stories of these amazing humans in a new form.

A few other details/logistics:

- This will be a paid, project-based role (budget to be discussed)
- Targeting early summer (June) for completion
- Los Angeles is preferable for location but not required
