Writers SIG Gathering
There was a general gathering of the Writers SIG community, members old and new, on Tuesday afternoon in Room 3 of the conference center. Led by Wendy, until she put a dry erase marker in Andy's hand and made him get up, it focused on what the SIG can do, has done, and should keep doing as a community to stay active and raise awareness. Self-awareness, in terms of ongoing projects that still need attending to, and external awareness, in terms of raising the profile of the community and its usefulness to the industry (and vice versa) or the IGDA in general.
New member J. Robinson (Rob) Wheeler, the guy with the hat, volunteered to take over upkeep of the little-known Writers SIG Wiki, which is why this page has now magically appeared.
Writers SIG Booth Staffing
Thanks to all who volunteered to man the Writers SIG booth during the conference!
I'll give everyone credit provided I can get a list from somewhere, probably by asking on the mailing list.
