Paul (paul_sff) | 70 comments #BooktubeSFF Babbles is a way for the community at large to discuss science fiction and fantasy and become a closer community. We encourage everyone to join in on the fun and create content to celebrate BooktubeSFF. Commenting and discussing SFF is just as important as creating the videos too. This is completely voluntary but it will create a stronger SFF community as a whole.

#BooktubeSFF Babbles will run from March 3rd to April 28th. Each week will have a new discussion topic to make the video on. Videos should try to be uploaded on Thursday of each week but no problem if it goes up during another day of that week. This is a great way to join and be a part of the BooktubeSFF Awards.

Please use the hashtag #BooktubeSFF Babbles with a space between the two.

Video Topics:

Nicole (nicolepo) | 107 comments Thanks for organizing this Paul! I'm not planning on doing the last video, but I will try and do all the others :)

Also, for those who don't make videos, writing a blog post or posting your responses to the prompts in this thread is cool too.

Katherine (maybeandroid) Ooh, this is interesting. I will have to think about how to get it to work with my particular format, but I will try to give it a go.
