      If all continues to go well, HASA will launch a new section,
      Workshop,on the first weekend of April. This is a long awaited module
      for the site, having been in concept stage for over a year, and under
      development since August of 2004.

      What is the Workshop? At its most basic, it is a place where groups of
      HASA members can jointly work on stories. The three building blocks
      are:

      1. Workshops or "Shops" - people join shops, add their stories to
      them, and jointly edit their work. Shops can either be Site shops for
      challenges and writing exercises, Open shops, where members are free
      to "drop in" on other members' works in progress, or Private shops,
      where a few members works together out of view on stories of interest
      to them all.

      2. Discussion Forums - like all the other sections, Workshop will have
      its own forum. The Workshop forum is a little different than regular
      forums because they interact with the shops, but the basic operation
      is the same.

      3. Playlists - Collections of stories put together by the different
      shops to provide hours of reading pleasure to the members. Different
      authors can put together collections of stories for almost any reason.
      This is a trial. A full "Playlist" section of HASA is in the early
      stages of development, and will allow readers to create playlists of
      their own to share.

      Looking for a few good admins:

      In order to get the Workshop off the ground, it will need the loving
      attention of a few more volunteers ready to make their mark on the
      site. There are as many support positions as there are people who wish
      to participate.

      Gwynnyd has already volunteered to be the Workshop Manager, or WSM,
      and will help people work together in this new collaborative
      environment to get the most out of their fanfic writing. She is
      looking for Workshop Assistants, or WSAs. This a hands-on and personal
      job, and has few requirements aside from a willingness to support HASA
      members in their writing attempts. A WSA will keep an eye on the
      Workshop forums for interesting posts, be on hand to help a member
      figure out the difference between adding a story and cloning one, and
      offer suggestions for new shops.

      Sound interesting? Would you like to give it a try? Drop the Site
      Manager a line and say so!
