Writer's Workshop — /fic/ Community Event Golden Vision No.1631
High on the tailwinds of our recent Thanksgiving /fic/ Writeoff, inspiration has struck for our next community event: a Writer's Workshop.
But this won't be your mother's workshop; oh no. Instead, we'll be having a full out convention-style event, with different reviewers and writers doing individual or pair panels on a subject or topic of their expertise, as it pertains to writing. Example topics might include, for example, creating emotive imagery, choosing appropriate verbiage, or the basics of elementary grammar. Any well-known author/reviewer, or /fic/ (or #fic) regular who feels confident in a certain topic is welcome to apply to hold their own panel through this thread.
In the meantime, we also have the intended audience of this Workshop event—you, the writers and underclassmen reviewers. If you've got any suggestions for the procedure of the Workshop, or anything specific you'd like to see, or even just well-wishes and a note of attendance, feel free to post it in the thread below as well.
As it stands now, the Workshop will likely be a panel/round-robin type of thing, where Skype and/or Livestream are utilized along with GDocs and a chat client to gain the maximum interactivity between panelist and audience. If there are any other suggestions or thoughts on the format of the Workshop itself, please—well. You know the drill by now.
Anyways, we haven't decided on time or days yet, so don't worry about not being able to attend. We'll likely spread this Workshop over a several day period—even as long as a week—and have different panels at all different times of the day. Maybe some will even repeat, for those unlucky people who had to miss one that they wanted.
!!Applejack/Anonthony will also be trying to contact knighty and Sethisto for advertising on fimfiction and EqD, respectively, so be ready for an influx of inquisitive newbies. If he is successful, then please be gentle with them. We'll show the rest of the Brony fandom that /fic/ is an especially gracious host.
For the forty-second time, please leave any thoughts, requests, suggestions, or comments in the thread below. Hope you all like this idea!
