The Visual Schedule for RollyPolly Con 2021!
Panels are hosted in the Discord Server, with a host (or multiple co-hosts) streaming their screen or webcam, and an active microphone. You can attend by watching and listening the stream, but attendees will not have the ability to speak (muted mic.) Panels will have dedicated Discord Channel for text-chatting among attendees, though!
Binge watching television as writing research? It's easier than you think.
Writer Jen Pendragon shows how she dissects the pilot episode of long-running programs such as Cheers, The Office, Fresh Prince of Bel Air, How I Met Your Mother, and Northern Exposure to show how writers convey character without infodump exposition. Learn to make your own spreadsheet or journal spread to easily collect this info, and develop dynamic characters with compelling backstories.

Contests will be hosted in the Discord Server, in dedicated text-based channels.
Teams representing the Punks and Dorks will be given trivia questions, and earn points for correct answers. Questions will be directed to the entire trivia team, who can work together to decide an answer. The teams are given seperate questions, and there is no multiple choice or hints. The most correct answers win!!
Atendees can color and add-to the page, "dressing up" the mascot. The submitted pages will be judged like a costume contest!! The winner's team will earn points!
The judging will take place at the end of the Costume / Cosplay Meet-Up!
