As we start work on the new custom-built website for LTC which will launch before Christmas, I am also being forced to think about what kind of You Tube channel I should create. Yikes! I’m not a TV professional, though I did have my own show which I produced and hosted for two series in 2010. But a channel that supports young writers? What would that look like?
What I do know is that I would like to create a channel that fits the LTC mission of fostering the development of young writers worldwide. So my audience is all of you who participate in our free contests, write for jaBlog, come to our Junior Authors Conferences, read Polly. I would be the host, of course. That’s the easy part. But the content…that’s where I need help.
This is where you come in.
Here are some questions I need answered before I can take launching a You Tube channel to the serious planning stages. I would love to know what you think. You can email me your answers or leave them below in the comments section. Any and all feedback is welcome.
- How long do you want each episode to be?
- What topics would you like me to cover?
- Would you like it to connect to Polly Wants to Be a Writer?
- Would you like a writing exercise in each episode or advice?
- Would you like the series to build toward a bigger lesson or have each episode stand alone?
- Would you care if every episode was shot from my desk and the setting didn’t change?
- What would a good title for the channel be?
- How often would you like a new episode? Should it be once a week? Once a month? More?
- If you are interested in getting involved, please submit an application to the LTC Team.
YOUR FEEDBACK IS WELCOME AND NEEDED!
