    That's a very intriguing idea. We are looking at doing the next few lessons under a similar theme so that they interconnect, so I will suggest this to the other moderators and see if we can tie it in with some other topics

    Calling all the great writers out there!

    We have decided to trial taking public submissions for the next Academy lesson. I have left it a bit late to get things going due to the Awards and personal dramas (uni and writing :P), but I am here to set it up and to hopefully have a lesson out by the middle of next month!

    The theme for the next lesson will be how to write a good review. This involves giving positive and constructive feedback, what counts as flaming, and ways to structure your review for all those who are unsure. It has been a hot topic recently, so we thought this would be a great way to do things. PM me if you are interested with an example of a review you have given and an idea of what you would talk about. Obviously, do not submit if you have no idea how to write a review, or if you are a scarce reviewer, as we will double check if you are knowledgeable on the subject. Read through the previous lessons (linked to on the previous page) as well so you know what a typical lesson is like as you should provide links to outside resources or reference them.

    This may sound like a lot, but if you have the knowledge, it is not too bad and would be a great way to give back to the Workshop and help out your fellow writers! I will only take submissions sent to me before the 1st of Feb so that there is enough time to choose a candidate!

    This looks interesting, but were I to apply and be chosen, when would the deadline for the actual lesson be? I'd love to contribute, but I don't want to apply and then have to bunk out.

    I would like to have it up by about the middle of the month, so you could have like a week and a half to two weeks to do it and give us a chance to have a glance over? Hope this helps

    We are looking into the next lesson and want to see some more Workshop-ers take part! Here is our list of potential topics that we will be using over the next few months based on the public's suggestions:

    Grammar
    Punctuation (including around dialogue)
    Tense
    Dialogue
    Proofreading
    Plot flow

    If anyone is interested in tackling one of these issues or combining two or so together (logically), PM me with an idea of what your lesson would involve and some proof that you are good when it comes to grammar, punctuation or what have you :) And due to the broad nature of this, if you are not selected this month we could still use you again in the future :)

    I just want to say thanks a lot for this! This is really helping me out with my writing.

    I'm highly anticipating the Grammar lesson because sometimes I have some real difficulty with that.

    I have completely forgotten to request this month's academy lesson! D'oh! So, if someone wants to do anything from the list above except for punctuation please PM me ASAP with what topic you want to do and how you would do your lesson!

    I just wanted to thank everyone who put this together. This thread y'all put together has been quite helpful and even a bit inspiring for a mediocre writer such as myself. I'm definitely glad that I took the time to skim through the lessons, and I look forward to reading them in full.

    For this month's lesson, it has been suggested we compile some different information on researching. If there about somewhere between four and seven people that would like to write one/two paragraphs each and discuss the methods you use for researching into a story, please PM me with your details and I will arrange things from there. Please send your messages in by Thursday, and remember that this will need to be completed before the last week of September so please do not sign up if you are going to be busy. Hopefully we can cover a number of different methods with this, and if you have a speciality area you may discuss that as well.
