and ask to join.

How does it work? 

The Dream Team Search will be accomplished in 5 phases. 

Phase 1
The Writer Search

Writers will submit a 22 page script. The script may not contain profanity. The script will be judged by 3 professional comics writers on a point system. Points will be awarded for Originality, Flow, Coherence, and Overall Storytelling Value.

The three submissions that earn the highest point score will then be presented to the Wonderfunders Membership Group for popular vote which will be weighted as 2/5 of the combined scores.

The recipient of highest combined scores will be awarded the honor and glory of being the script for Phase 2 (pencils) of the project.

We will begin accepting submissions on February 1st 2012 and the deadline for submission is February 14th 2012 for this phase of the search.
