Tying in nicely with Wizard of the Coast’s RPG club grant program, Roleplaying Tips is featuring an article by Katrina Middelburg-Creswell about Starting and Running a Role-Playing Games Club.

Katrina is a middle school teacher who started a gaming club at her school five years ago, and she has lots of practical advice about what she did, how she did it and why it worked. She covers a lot of ground, and even if you’re not looking to start a school-based club, there are some great tips here.

There’s also a whole section devoted to teaching potential new players how to play RPGs, which Katrina recommends doing by way of mini-conventions. Good stuff all around.
