HEY YOUNG BLOODS.

So, I have a proposal for y'all.

I've been thinking about more ways to include y'all in my blogging.

And I thought - what if I did a week showcasing the writing of the writers in the comm?

Every day for one week, I would post a writing piece from a different writer in the comm. I'd probably kick off the week with one of my own pieces, so there would be six "spots" or days open for different writers.

What would happen is if you wanted to be included in the showcase, you would submit to me (via contact form on my sidebar, or, if you're not allowed to reveal your email (even though it would only be to me), via a comment that I just wouldn't publish) the piece of yours you wanted to be included. I would reply with which "day" you were, and on your day, I'd post the piece you submitted with a link to your blog(s) and a small promotion of you and your blog(s). People could give you feedback in the comments and stuff.

Extra information:

  • I would accept pretty much any genre/format: short story, excerpt, monologue, poem, fanfiction, diary entry, play, whatever floats your boat, whichever piece you're most proud of.
  • You can also enter if you don't have a blog! I allow anonymous comments, so you could enter by comment or, if you wanted, email.
  • Old pieces or pieces you'd already published on your blog would be allowed! Just a warning: if you submit something you've already published on your blog, people who've seen that post on your blog might skip over it when it's published on here. If you submit something you've not published before, however, everyone would still be interested in seeing it on here! 

PLEASE COMMENT BELOW if you would be interested in doing a thing like this! Please only comment if you think you'd seriously submit something, not just to say "ohhhhh this is a great idea but I'm busyyyyyy". And please keep in mind this would require very little participation from you; you wouldn't have to write a new piece if you don't want to, all you'd really have to do is send me a ten-minute email.

Also, feel free to comment any questions you might have!

Thank you.

Namarië,
