One of the Shadow Academy’s ongoing projects is to expand our writing department with courses designed to help members learn more about writing and improve their skills, particularly as they pertain to the kinds of writing we do here – with the ultimate goal of having a complete track of writing courses to restore the Writing Sage degree.
This new course covers what descriptive writing is and why writers use it, the principles of how to employ it in your writing (including some tips on what to avoid), and techniques that writers can use to include more descriptive language in their work.
My call for a new Magistrate yielded some great applications from members I enjoyed getting to know from their applications and chatting with a few of them during the process, so thank you to everyone who applied. Ultimately, I decided to bring on Appius “Zappius” Wight.
Appius is well known to many for his enthusiasm and efforts to bring our community closer together. He came to the application process with some great ideas for approaching the Star Wars lore focus we wanted for this position and has already hit the ground on running on multiple projects we have planned for the coming year, so I’m excited to have him on staff and look forward to working with him.
Finally, a quick reminder that the Shadow Academy’s cooperative ACC competition, SARLACC, is launching on Friday, January 15.
If you’d like to participate in this competition but haven’t yet qualified for the ACC, you’ll need to do so by taking and passing the qualification exam before you can join the competition. Anyone who is ACC qualified will be eligible to participate, and members will get to choose their own matches for the cooperative battles.
