February – March: Skribu!

Rachel Wil Sha Singh


Write stories in Esperanto during February & March!

December – January was Ludfesto, the event to make video games in Esperanto, and February – March is Skribu – an event for writing stories in Esperanto.

Lometha is organizing this one, and if you’re interested in participating, check out the /r/Skribu subreddit: http://www.reddit.com/r/skribu

Video games… Stories… perhaps April – May will be the Movie Months! 😉

Penpals – via YouTube

Rachel Wil Sha Singh

Are you looking for a way to practice your spoken Esperanto?

The Praktiku Esperanton group might be a good place to check out, if you can make it to one of the G+ Hangouts. But, if you don’t have the time, or courage, for a group video-and-voice chat, perhaps video penpals is a better solution for you!

Video Pen Pals

I’ve begun a project where some friends and I send each other brief video messages via YouTube – similar to how you would send a small postcard. After someone receives a video message, then they can record their own in response, and the cycle continues!

The nice thing about video pen pal projects it that you can work at your own pace – you can script your response, or try to ad lib, and you can edit your video down before uploading.

For an example of how it works, you can check out my YouTube playlist, where I’m keeping track of my correspondence!


Feel free to send me a video message (make sure to leave me a comment somewhere, so I will know!), and I will try to get back to you when I can! Otherwise, try it out with a friend!

The Ludfesto webpage is LIVE!

tcql and I have been working on organizing Ludfesto – an Esperanto-themed GameJam that will be running throughout the month of December.

The goal is to encourage people to learn how to make games, and hopefully see more Esperanto-language projects started!

Teams are definitely allowed, so even if you don’t want to tackle working with building the game itself, you could help out via translating, art, music, etc.!

And, even if you don’t have experience making games, if it sounds interesting to you, I definitely suggest you try it out! There are tons of tools and tons of tutorials out there, so stick with a small project and learn something new! (I’m also working on some Esperanto-language tutorials throughout November).

Rules and more information are on the webpage, if you have any questions let us know! 😀



November is “NaNoWriMo”!

NaNoWriMo is short for “National Novel Writing Month”. Basically, you accept a challenge: to write 50,000 words for your novel, during November.

I suggest that you take part, and write a story in Esperanto! It’s not important whether you’re good or mediocre – it’s for fun and practice!

Afterwards, we can share our stories! :)

Check out the thread on Reddit for discussion!

Esperanto GameJam / Esperanta Ludfesto (DECEMBER)

Rachel Wil Sha Singh


tcql kaj mi projektas kaj organizas Decembran Ludfeston (GameJam) por, kaj pri, Esperanto.

tcql and I are planning and organizing a December GameJam for, and about, Esperanto.

Mi esperas ke multe da uloj kreos videoludojn por ĝi.

I hope that many people will make video games for it.

Mi volas krei YouTube kurson pri kreado de videoludoj, antaŭ tiam. Estus por komencantoj, do la demando estas — kia ilo mi devas instrui pri?

I want to create a YouTube course about creating video games before then. Since this would be for beginners, the question is – What tool should I teach about?

Komentu, aŭ retpoŝtu min ĉe Rachel@Moosader.com por diri min, kiaj iloj ke vi interesiĝas en!
