For each workshop attendance, please read the Announcements, Assignments, and Submissions forum thread that corresponds with the date of your attendance.
For instance, if you’re attending on Tuesday, 8/1/17, go to the forum thread labelled “Announcements, Assignments, and Submissions – Tuesday, 8/1/17.”
Once you’re there:
Weekly announcements pertain to The People’s Colloquium and to The People’s Ink specifically.
Please note: announcements may repeat weekly. In this case, it’s only necessary to read such announcements once, though you should still retain familiarity with their contents.
For each workshop you’re scheduled to attend, your name will appear under the “assignments.” Please locate your name and then access the appropriate group materials.
Below are three examples.
Submitting writer/artist/speaker/etc: Anthony D
Facilitator: Shane D

Discussion Syllabus: link to discussion syllabus
Facilitator: Rich P
Explanation: in this example, you have been assigned to a discussion group. The next step is to click on the link to the discussion group syllabus in order to read it and its associated materials in advance to the discussion.
Focus group: Art and Experimentation
Submitting artist: Bobby P
Facilitator: Rich P
Explanation: in this example, you have been assigned to a Focus Group. To access the critique submission, you may have to go the Focus Group forums. This is not always the case, however, because some Focus Groups upload critique submissions directly to the weekly Announcements, Assignments, and Submissions forum thread. If you’re uncertain where your critique submission will appear, please contact an administrator at ThePeoplesColloquiumPDX@gmail.com.
To download a submission, go to the bottom of the appropriate forum thread. Submissions are tagged by the member who uploaded them.
The forum thread holding the critique submission will either be the weekly Announcements, Assignments, and Submissions forum thread, or a Focus Group specific forum thread in the case of some Focus Groups (see above).
To upload a submission, go to the very bottom of the appropriate forum thread.
Submissions may be posted late because meeting deadlines can be difficult! If you’re concerned that a submission hasn’t been posted in time, or if you aren’t able to find it, please feel free to contact us at ThePeoplesColloquiumPDX@gmail.com.
