In-world Reading this Saturday!

Fellow Quillian, Sherry D. Ramsey (Luta Lassard inSL) will be reading her original short story “Her Money’s Worth” this Saturday evening (Saturday, January 15th at 6pm slt).  This story originally appeared in Airborne, The Speculative Elements Vol 2. published by Third Person Press.

This is the fourth of our new monthly events, occurring on the third Saturday of each month at 6pmSLT (9pmET/6pmPT).

The reading will be recorded for use in our upcoming Quillian Podcast, but you’re urged to attend now as the podcast won’t be available for a few months yet.

The reading will occur in the Workshop building, on the second floor beside the traditional meeting circle.  The reading is a voice event, so attendees are encouraged to come with their “ears on” and their microphones off.  Since the event is also being recorded, we request that you refrain from using audio ‘gestures’ or other devices that create ambient noise.

Also, as a reminder as Michael has already posted:

The Quillians are pleased to announce that they will be participating in the American Library Association’s Second Life ReadOut!  On October 2, 2010 at 4pm ET (1pm PT/SLT), Second Life residents can listen to excerpts from various banned or challenged books, as read by special guests.  The Quillians will be represented by authors Michael A. Stackpole and Steven Saus, as well as Quillian founder, Michael J. Hercus and member, John Lambert.

Should be a fun day for all!

Announcing a new event night!

The Quillians are proud to announce the addition of a new event night to supplement our weekly meetings!

The third Saturday of each month at 6pm SLT will mark the new meeting time.  The first such event will be held on October 16, 2010.

The scheduled event night will see a few different forms along the way – everything from readings to interviews and perhaps even game nights.

As an extra bonus, readings and interviews will be recorded for inclusion into a Quillian Podcast (to be launched early next year).  Both the live reading and the podcast recording will assist Quillian members in promoting their stories and themselves to a larger market.

We are interested in making this new event night into a group effort and, in that spirit, we are looking to our fellow group members for ideas and suggestions for different event themes.  We are also looking for volunteers who would like to help organize events, or would like to hold a reading of their own.  If you are interested in helping out, please contact either Graegor Aeon or Timothy Berkmans inSL.

Upcoming Reading

Sherry D. Ramsey (Luta Lassard in-world) will be reading her fantasy story, “Winter Bewitched” to benefit Relay for Life of Second Life, on July 9th, 2010 at 6pm SLT.  All are welcome!  This will (obviously) be a voice event, so make sure voice is enabled and your speakers are on!  Donations for RFL will be accepted during the reading.  SLURL to follow when the venue is definite, although it will be somewhere in the Wind River Territory sim.  Hope to see you there!

A successful seminar

Special thanks to Kat Alderson for her wonderful Web Design Seminar last Monday!  The event ran ‘just a little long’ at around three hours, but it was jam-packed with information.  I know I spent the next day or two revamping my website and I’m sure I wasn’t alone.

If you’ll remember, this was also a Relay For Life fundraiser seminar, with donations being accepted for that wonderful cause.  I’m very proud to announce that the seminar pulled in L$17,450.oo in donations!  Well done everyone!

If you attended the seminar, let us know what you thought of it.  Any lingering questions?  A desire for another?
