Non-paying jobs are a joke. Basically asking for charity, with only the vague hope for "exposure."
You'd have to at least show some audience metrics that warrant the value of said exposure.

A couple of thoughts:

If this is a non-commercial or hobby/amateur project, you might want to visit an amateur writing group or club. Some writers may post samples of their work for show or critique, so look around. If you find work in a style that suits your animation project, ask the writer if they're interested in a collaboration. If they are, you might be able to work out something besides payment, like co-ownership.

On the other hand, if this is a commercial venture, you'll want to budget for a writer. Speaking as an amateur writer myself, if the project is a job, I'd rather pay a pro who will write well and deliver with confidence.

Whether this is a commercial or non-commercial project, you'll want to prepare an inspiring pitch package. Even an amateur writer's time is valuable, and he'll need to be convinced or motivated to get involved.

In honor of science fiction writer Harlan Ellison's recent passing, I pass along one of his famous rants:



One of the heroes of my youth! :)
