Following our previous journal on our zombifiction revival, I am pleased to say it is crazy enough to have a go! I don’t expect every one of our 1500 members to get involved, but even if there is a handful each time getting some good out of this, then that’s one handful getting a better attack on their writing and understanding their niches. These groups hold a great opportunity to explore and stretch even the more experienced writers, and I believe that’s what made this group so good to begin with.
So here is my plan.
In May, we will hold a new workshop. The entire workshop will be encapsulated in one month: 2 weeks to write, 2 weeks to workshop.
Week 1, Day 1: Workshop brief is launched and you have 2 weeks to submit. The standard to what you submit can be anything from a rough draft to something you have worked on, it doesn't even have to be complete yet. (Please ensure you put it in stash or scraps if it is a WIP)
Week 3, day 1: Submissions are posted for critique and review
Week 4, end: At the end of the week, Workshop host to summarise results, pick a few pieces that stand out
End: We all celebrate with a glass or three.
The intention would be to have these run from the first Saturday of each month.
All sorts. The idea is to vary what we do; covering different forms and styles and concepts. We want to look at habits and behaviours; things you don’t always consider as a writer first off. We also may use real examples, such as submission briefs in zines or contests going off elsewhere (maybe even some dA contests you can genuinely enter). We want to stretch you!
Urgh, critique. That thing we all want but rarely give ourselves. Critique isn't free; you can’t just throw up a deviation, go have a cup of tea and watch the responses come in. You have to work for it. There are PLENTY of opportunities to ask for critique including: Chat events, Critique groups, Critique forum thread, Helpful people who offer it in journals (networking!), asking people who you think would help you (and ask nicely!). We would expect anyone who submits in a workshop to actually participate in giving feedback to others in the workshop- that’s kind of the point. Plus it is AMAZING how much you can learn about your own work by looking at someone else’s- so it is ideally a win-win situation! /end rant
In this workshop environment, we do ask if people are participating, they at least offer feedback to one other piece in the group. If there needs to be an incentive to encourage this, thoughts are welcome.

Daily Devation Suggestion RemindersHiya Darlings,
Today I'd like to send out a reminder for what I look for in a Daily Deviation suggestion. We've all seen the classic DD comment about how so-and-so does great work, but they never get featured. Well, there's a very easy solution to that problem. Suggest them! There are just a few things that you need to consider before sending me or the other Stock & Resources CVs a Daily Deviation Suggestion.
What type of stuff do you feature?
- I can only feature submissions listed under the Resources & Stock category of deviantART. For all other categories, please check out this handy guide:
Have they been featured with a Daily Deviation within the last six months?
- This is a very easy thing to check out. The way I do it when I'm checking to see if they've had one in the last six months is by ad

News from Stock and ResourcesLine-art & Character Templates Gallery
The Line-art & Character Sheets gallery has been renamed to "Line-art & Character Templates" in hopes of less confusion going on there. The gallery is meant for line-art (there seems to be no problem with this) and the less-understood item called a character sheet template. These are character sheets that have NOT been filled out yet, and are available for others to use.
Pre-filled character sheets need to be placed in Digital Art, or wherever is appropriate. As a reminder, please only place resources for others to use into the Resources & Stock Images gallery. We are putting some extra focus into this sub-gallery to get it nice and shiny!
If you need help moving your filled-in character sheets out of the stock gallery, give one of us a holler
For every submission I get, I will add $0.50 to the pool. That money will be sent to the SPCA right here in Swift Current. this is a "no kill" shelter and the are in a bind right now. Every grumpy cat will be for a good cause! Help me reach 200 people again! If I get 200 submissions, I will donate 50 dollars worth of pet supplies to the shelter as well! If I get 300 submissions I'll donate 150 dollars worth of pet supplies!
