- slowly expand the community of artists who feel they have a space to incubate their work and a ‘personal writers’ room’ of sorts.
- host salons, performances or critiques or small gatherings within each other’s homes once the pandemic environment is safer
- digital events and gatherings, say a play reading, a show and tell, zoom cabaret & critique session, etc.
- people maybe can offer classes etc.
stuff you may want to try out, tech notes, etc.
- you can change to the sexy dark theme in settings
- you may want to experiment with the 'expanded web layout' which displays in four columns and looks pretty neat.
- if you want to target a post to only a few specific people, you can list their usernames, and change the post type (the globe in the box) to 'direct'. this will send the post as a direct message to everyone and they can reply.
this isn't meant to replace facebook or any of the other circles you run in and discuss your work in -
obviously!! it is definitely 'in addition' to anything and everything else you are doing.
i created this to create a 'room' where you just know that other people are working on projects and showing their work. it is the essence of keeping a bardic cell going!
you all are people who have done that in the past, who are collaborative and offer good critiques. Perhaps we can do it for each other again.
- present drafts of works in progress, get suggestions, critiques, etc.
- get help with an idea, get suggestions of people who would be good to work on your creative team for a project
this is not a club, not a clique, there are no leaders, no hierarchy, no money, no marketing, it is merely a tool and a community if you feel it may be useful. i created it very selfishly because I realized there was a void of community that I had in grad school where I could share ideas and work easily, and wanted a feeling of ‘people having my back creatively’ out in the world post-graduation.
just here for the funsies
