We created the Immortal Contest in an effort to build a watering hole, oasis or haven for authors and writers to come find us. Main function of this contest is showcasing the potential and benefits of the collaboration platform and coauthoring in general. During the Immortal Contest, we collectively write a single (sometimes multiple) storyline(s) with the help of anyone who’s interested in continuing the storyline. At the end of the contest, we bring the contestants together to form a writing team to finish the short story that was written during the contest. When all writers collectively agree on the set dollar amount they come up with to finish the story together, FOA.PLUS starts the fundraising/crowdsourcing/marketing efforts for the writers. We aim to find each weekly writers group their future sponsors, investors, micro-investors and donors who see the potential in the story they created.
At the conclusion of our Weekly Writing Contest, we submit the collaboratively coauthored storyline to the Weekly Voice-Over Contest where we seek to find the main voice-over actor who can join the Immortal Contest writing team of the week to further help with the authoring process. The winner of the voice-over contest will then have the opportunity to do the narration of the final book that is produced from the group. Voice-over actor can also come up with the $ amount that they’d be content with doing the narration for the finished novel and that will be tagged on to the donation goal of the writing team.

FOA.PLUS partner sites will have access to new seasonal themes to chance the look and feel of their sites. This current theme you are looking at is the main and current placeholder design that you will have access to once you’re part of the FOA.PLUS family. To further illustrate the vision of the main FOA.PLUS site is that the main platform will function like an online mall/shopping center which the vendors and stores within it are authors, writers and students providing literacy services and literary goods.
You’ve seen the TV show Shark Tank, right? It’s where “entrepreneurs” pitch their business ideas to potential investor judges who are millionaires and billionaires.

Message from The Future of Authoring, Academia & Apprenticeship
At the end of this project when we have launched the business and started up the partnerships, you will wonder why we have never done this before… well, they didn’t have you and I! There will eventually come a time where our current “complete” history of humanity will be bunched into half a sentence of a footnote of a single age and for that distant future and the immediate ones that are sure to follow, they will remember us that this is where it all began. That this was our finest moment that turned the tide and corrected the trajectory of our collective human evolution!
