Prompting: November 21-27 Prompt Claim & Signups: November 29-December 5 Submissions Due: February 21 Posting Begins: March 5
1. Next gen is defined as containing at least one central character from the Epilogue of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and the interviews with J. K. Rowling (see Accio Quote for details). A full list of Next Gen characters appears below.
2. Femmeslash, gen, het and slash requests and submissions are all welcome in the exchange. Cross gen is considered next gen if there is one next gen character involved.
3. You must be at least 18 years of age to participate. Please also adhere to LJ's rules on viewing this type of material, which should be done at your discretion.
4. Please familiarize yourself with the schedule. It is your responsibility to stay on top of deadlines and email the mod if you cannot adhere to them.
5. This is an anonymous fest. Please try to keep your work anonymous for the duration of the fest. Submitted works should not be posted anywhere else by the author/artist until reveals are up.
6. Guidelines for submissions: - Fiction must be at least 1000 words in length and must be beta read. We will send submissions with grammar and spelling problems back to participants for further editing. Please add all of the appropriate HTML tags to your entries. - Art should be a finished piece that has taken more than an hour to complete. - While you should pay attention to the prompt you are given, since this is NOT an exchange fest, you are NOT writing or drawing for anybody else. If you stray from your prompt, that's cool. If you use it as a jumping off point, also cool. You are not married to your prompt. :) - The preferred submission format is .doc or .docx but we will try to accommodate other filetypes if needed.
7. Please stay in touch. If you will have a problem submitting in a timely fashion, please email us as soon as you know. We will send out deadline reminders, but we need to know about problems as they occur so we can plan around them. Don't be afraid to contact us for any reason, even if you need to dropout. We will not hunt you down.
For all cross-gen pairings, an "age disparity warning" (ADW) will need to be provided on your fics. This helps to keep from squicking people who may be comfortable with certain age ranges and not others and also ensures that if anybody is underage, the warning is crystal clear. To see the age disparity between all next gen cross gen pairings, please see the Age Disparity Guide, provided by marguerite_26.
Submissions, questions, and extension requests may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
