Weekly Writing Workshop, with Golden Vision and Nicholas 1973

Hello all! Golden Vision, reviewer and writer extraordinaire, reporting for duty!

Some of you might remember the two Livestreamed Writers' Workshops that I did back when we were all on Ponychan's /fic/. Welp, I'm bringing them back with a vengeance—and a twist.

Welcome, people of MLPChan, to the Weekly Writing Workshop!

Please don't confuse this, by the way, with the /fic/ Writer's Workshop, a community-wide event to be held at some future date. Totally different.

I'll be joined by your co-host, #fic's very own Nicholas, and we'll blaze a trail through poni fiction in a way you've never seen before. Each week, we'll do a livestreamed event (and possibly a podcast later on) that comes in three distinct segments, as detailed below.

1.) Tip of the Week/Style & Technique (15-30 minutes)
*In this section, we'll go over a certain tip of the week, and detail the ways in which it can be applied to writing at large. Sample topics might include grammatical misdemeanors, characterization missteps, or even storytelling clichés to avoid. In the meantime, we'll also discuss a certain pro tip or other form of advice to make your writing even better, rather than just avoiding common pitfalls. The end result should hopefully be to make you a more experience, and more confident writer of both fiction and prose.

2.) Interviews (15 + 15 minutes)
*This part will consist of two, roughly 15-minute segments, in which we interview one reviewer and one writer, respectively (new ones very week!). Baron and I will ask them different questions to get an idea of how they go about their craft, and how they view the task of writing in general. If there are any writers or reviewers that you'd like to see on the show, or if you have specific questions to ask them, leave them on a post below!

3.) Live Review (15-30 minutes)
*Our final segment will be a live review, critique, and commentary on a provided fanfic. The objective of this bit will be to get across how the average reader might look over and receive a peculiar mode of writing, and how different problems and concepts are best dealt with. I've met many a writer who said their skill improved after reviewing the work of others, and we hope to give our audience that same kind of benefit and insight.

Our first broadcast will be Saturday, December 1st, at 3:00 PM EST (8:00 PM GMT). All are welcome to view, and we've definitely got some fun stuff lined up for you! Feel free to drop any comments, requests, or thoughts in the thread below, and we'll do our best to get back to you.

We're looking forward to seeing you all for our first broadcast! This is so exciting!

This is actually a repost, as I may have accidentally deleted the last thread while trying to edit the OP

Anyway, I'm currently uploading last week's full episode, and prepping questions and notes for this week's.

>Hey, is there anything I can do to help?

Watch, comment, and advertise. :3

Hey all, the 9th Weekly Writers' Workshop with Golden Vision and Nicholas is starting in just a couple minutes! This week, we'll be discussing Body Language in our Tips and Tricks segment, then an interview with JasonTheHuman of Anthropology fame shall follow. Veteran and novice writers alike should benefit from this simple, yet often neglected bit of writing advice.

Hope you're able to join us! Should be a fairly incoherent hour or two!
