:new: Update 2011

We are currently seeking almost a whole new team of contributors to help out with this group. The more hands, the lighter the work, and previous volunteers will tell you that this isn't high demand, but we do like regular, active people who can help in the backroom and make this workshop truly a great group. Please consider applying :heart:

Applications for Contributors

Without a strong team behind the workshop, we cannot keep producing a decent workshop cycle after cycle. Although we have a core staff team, we also have contributor positions to support us.

A contributor is someone who is willing to dedicate time to the group. We ask people to commit- not just apply because you want to further yourself in deviantArt. The main duties of a contributor are:

1) To participate in workshops, producing a relatively high quality example of what the workshop entails. We do not expect you to participate in every single one.

2) To offer critique on a number of the pieces of each workshop. Again, it doesn't have to be every single workshop.

3) To help us promote, keep the enthusiasm, and encourage throughout the workshop.

4) To share opinion and ideas in our back room discussions.

We are seeking people who have been members of the workshop for a significant amount of time, who understand the nature of the workshop process. You also need to be an active member of the literature community and have a majority of literature in your gallery. This doesn't mean you have to be a member of 18 other groups, it just means you have a strong interest in the literature community of deviantART.

How to Apply

If you would like to be considered as a contributor, please send us a note via the ‘contact us’ button with the following information:

:bulletgreen: An explanation as to why you would like to be a contributor
:bulletgreen: Information about you, your writing.
:bulletgreen: A list of any other groups, clubs and projects you are involved with, including any personal community work (I.e. if you produce a weekly news article etc)
:bulletgreen: Two examples of your critique (links will do)  

Please Note

Although we are not limiting how many contributors we want, we are not going to accept everyone who applies. Please do not be disheartened if we decide not to accept your application at this time.

If you are accepted as a contributor, you will receive an invite to join the group in this position.

Man I would LOVE to help you guys out, but oi ve I don't think I could do all of THAT! Maybe I should become more active in this group first? IDK

Oh well, I hope you fill your positions soon!

I like the group and all, but my interests, like all interests to all humans, waxes and wanes. I'm not gonna commit if I'm just gonna 'skip class' and be a lazy ho. So no teachers pet job for me. But I'll continue my wishy-washy unpredictable support in my own way. /THUMBSUP

I would. I really would. But I have zero deviations up; I'm too self-conscious about my writing and my art is horrid.

One of the things I love about workshopping is that you don't have to be brilliant, you just have to be willing to try. :) You don't have to be a contributor - why not give one of the workshops a bash and see how it goes?

I've followed along with the workshops and occasionally written down ideas, but I always put it off before a deadline and upon reading entries realize that I was doing it totally wrong ^^; But maybe I will give it a try sometime.

Different isn't always wrong, cliched as that sounds. ;) I hope you do!

Sorry. Too many other groups I'm admin-ing to fully commit to this.

I haven't done a workshop here in a while (real life issues and my own works come first), but I remember there used to be a lot of member participation in terms of critique. Has it dropped that much? Maybe resort to the crit for a crit plan? To participate you must offer up at least one crit. Just a thought...
