Designated category for Creative Writing and related content
Ranging from writing and discussing novels, to poetry, scripts, comics, article editing, tabletop campaign planning, world creation, etc. There are a wide array of people doing various forms of creative writing on twitch, (Counted 53 channels so far, still working on finding more) and often it's hard to decide between "Creative" "Art" or "Just Chatting". Currently all we have to search for similar content is the "Writing" tag, which some of the broader definitions are hesitant to use, and is also used by people writing computer code, which is honestly a very different type of content despite it's visual similarities.
A category for this would seriously help us to find content and be found by the wider community of storytelling or wordsmithing fans that use twitch, as well as make it easier for twitches algorithm to identify what we watch. (I am often recommended visual art streams because I watch a lot of writers that use the art category, but never recommended any writing channels, and others I have spoken to experience the same)
How many votes will it take to get this? We definitely need this!
Writers of Twitch! Let's use this idea thread to build a community.
What's the name of your channel? What do you write? When do you stream?
Even if they don't make an official category we can still support each other.
i honestly hope this becomes a thing. I think getting steamrolled by Just Chatting groups it's hard for us to get noticed when it comes people are looking for "Writing" or "Creative Writing" even tags don't always help. Plus I would like to connect with more writers on this platform too, and it is so hard to find them.
OMG, I just found this. I'm new to streaming and there are so many writers streaming on Twitch and we definitely need a Creative Writing and related content category. Even when I try to search for my fellow writers, I have to either ask other people for recommendations or browse through the just chatting category. We definitely need a category where we can feel at home and just stream and people who wants to join a creative writing stream can just follow the category and jump into the streams of their favorite writers.
Creating a dedicated category for Creative Writing and related content is a fantastic idea. As a student, I've faced the challenges of intricate writing assignments, especially when they involve creative elements. Sometimes, it becomes necessary to seek assistance, and services for write my dissertation for me from trusted sources like https://academized.com/writing-services/write-my-dissertation This way, we can explore our creative writing potential without the added pressure.
My Idea for writing is to have the image of a quill and paper morphing into a keyboard computer screen since many people are using Twitch to stream their writing.
Adding once again to the comments about this. We do need a way to recognize writers on Twitch. It would be so much easier for the writing community to have a dedicated category so we can connect, network and support each others streams.
This is definitely a category that I think should be added. It would be much easier for writers on twitch to find each other and share writing resources.
Yes! It would be wonderful for writers to have their own category!! :D
I would also love to see a category for writers
Please, please, please can we have a writers category
I vote for Writers Rights in Twitch so we all can get our own category. Power to the writers ✍️!
Ottima idea,ciò che avrei voluto proporre anch'io! :D
In italiano si chiamerebbe "Scrittura creativa" oltre che appunto inserire anche una categoria "Poesia" ( la dicitura inglese aiuta certo però rischia di indirizzare ai miei video persone che non riuscirebbero a seguire il senso di ciò che andrei a scrivere visto che il contenuto della diretta sarebbe interamente in italiano)
As another streaming writer on Twitch, this being its own category would be amazing!
This would be amazing! I definitely think this should be its own category on Twitch! While Twitch is heavily advertised for the Gaming Community, it's apparent that there are other categories on the platform that have provided much entertainment for many viewers, myself included. So many communities now make up the entity that is Twitch and they all need to be represented equally.
I'll Vote For You
I second the category for creative writing.
Just read through the comments........
As a variety streamer who games, draws, AND writes, I want there to be a space for each of these categories equally. Having a space to hear best writing tactics, programs, styles, and tips with likeminded people who want to improve as writers is just as important for us as it is for musicians, artists, bakers, crafters, and individual gaming communities. It would also be much easier to find one another instead of random searches and stumbling into the right streams. It may even encourage people to start streaming that didn't think there was a place for them to thrive.
We would love to see a "Writers" or "Writing" Main Category on Twitch. Did you know there are many creative writers streaming on Twitch? It's pretty sad that we don't have a dedicated Main Category. This makes us hard to find, as we got lost in the sea of inaccurate categories. IRL Chat isn't specific enough and having "Writers" as a game is inaccurate and confusing. I sincerely believe that allowing us to have our own Main Category would be a vast improvement to user experience - both creators and audiences.
