In the past we had a program for members who were recognized for their dedication to the Writing Workshop and the critiquing of works therein. For various reasons, the idea and the execution of the program faded into obscurity. I want to bring it back. More accurately, I've been wanting to bring it back for a very long time. I want to bring it back with a clearer purpose, and sense of what it is meant to be. The Workshop is the heart of the forum and the destination for nearly all new members when they join, WIP in hand just dying to be posted. I want to foster and grow a core of individuals who give solid critique, who are consistent and dedicated, who can be empowered to help new members who have never engaged in the critique process and in so doing help to keep a steady focus on the reason we are all here. This thread is a call to those members who, upon reading the above description, thought "That's me!" so we can discuss how such a group would work, and what would be expected. For those who may remember this program from the past, one of the stumbling blocks it suffered from was simply not having a person positioned and empowered to keep the program fresh and continuous, accounting for the fact that people come and go, thus such a program needs to recognize when someone is no longer active and also when new members should be added. This has been resolved and the program is green-lighted. So, are you a power critic? Do you head directly to the Workshop when you see something new posted? Come and lets talk.
