Morgan Spurlock Wants to Hear about Your Failed Novel

Filmmaker and author Morgan Spurlock posted a casting call for failed writers and dreamers on our job boards. The notice includes a specific request for people who have failed in their quest to write the Great American Novel.

Spurlock will choose a few lucky failures from the New York area to feature in an upcoming documentary series. If you are interested, swallow your pride and follow this link to apply for the series.

Here’s more from the post: “Is there something that you have always dreamed of doing but have been too afraid of failing to try? Did you always want to open a restaurant, write that Great American Novel or maybe even climb a mountain! If you are ready to overcome that fear of failure, then we want to hear your story. Morgan Spurlock (30 Days, Super Size Me, A Day in the Life ) is looking for real people with big dreams to be part of a new documentary-style program for Yahoo! This brand new series, Failure Club,” is about embracing the fear of failure in order to change your life. Meeting each week over the course of a year, 7 different people will come together to form this unique Club where they will help each other achieve the things they’ve only dreamed of.”
