StarBase 118 Staff

Recommended Posts

February is finally here, and with it comes a number of activities we’ve set up just for you. With the end goal of improving the quality of writing across the fleet, and helping those who want it to reach new heights with their sims, there are lots of activities planned. Week one starts now, with the following events planned.

Sunday February 2 – We’ll start by kicking things off with Opening Ceremonies in our IRC chat. The ceremonies begin at 11am PST / 2pm EST / 7pm GMT / Monday AM for Australia.

Sunday February 2 – Fleet Captain Kalianna Nicholotti hosts a fun grammar quiz on the news feed that will help you review and pinpoint focus areas. Be sure to stay tuned later in the week for the answers to see how you did!

Monday February 3 – Tutorial: “Tackling Common Grammatical Errors Forever”. Fleet Captain Kalianna Nicholotti helps you banish those demons of the English language. Forever.

Tuesday February 4 – Spotlight on a top sim (which? It’s a surprise!) written by one of our members. This sim and others will be shared in the Writing Improvement Month Forums.

Wednesday February 5 – Tutorial: “Further Refining Grammatical Prowess”. Fleet Captain Diego Herrera covers the finer points of grammar.

Thursday February 6 – Spotlight on (another!) top sim … to be revealed on the day. Stay tuned on the forums to catch another brilliant example of writing, thanks to another of our members.

Saturday February 8 – Help us round out the week by welcoming Melinda Snodgrass, author of numerous Star Trek episodes, for a live spreecast beginning at 10am PST / 1pm EST / 6pm GMT. Melinda will share her expertise on writing in the Star Trek universe (and writing in general) with us, so bring your questions!

We’re really looking forward to these awesome events and learning a lot. Please join us on the forums, the news feed, and for our live events and help make this year’s writing improvement month even better than the last!
