Workshops are a newer implementation, and so these guidelines are still more of a loose starting point. They are intended to be versatile enough to describe multiple types of workshops.
- Workshops are generally run by Managing Editors, but if any staff member is qualified and interested, they may also host a workshop.
- Workshops are not a recurrent, scheduled event (yet). Instead, when a staff member has bandwidth, they announce and plan a workshop a few weeks (or months) in advance.
- The Communications Director should help this staff member market the workshop. This is something that could be pitched during Creation Week.
- The Managing Editors may include news of this workshop in the newsletter as well.
- The Creative Directors would also assist in creating graphics to let people know about workshop.
- The procedure is relatively similar to Review.
- A staff member creates an “Event” on Discord for people to RSVP to.
- Submissions are opened for workshop. Anyone who submits is agreeing to attend workshop.
- The workshop leader sends a packet of these submissions out to all submitters with instructions on how to workshop.
- The staff member runs review in a designated channel’s voice call and conducts review. Workshop is intended to be 2 hours or less, so the workshop leader may have to cap submissions, split sessions, etc.
