HP Next Gen Fest 2017

Hello lovely Next Gen fans! I'm dropping by today with a couple of quick announcements.

1. hp_nextgen_fest will be returning for 2017! Hooray! More information will come closer to the prompting date, but in the meantime, here is the tentative schedule:

2017 Timeline:
Prompting: August 1-11th
Claiming Opens: August 14th
Works Due: October 16th
Posting Starts: October 30th

Dates may shift a smidge, as I'm in the process of planning a vacation in the October timeframe, and I'm not quite sure yet where it'll land. But if it has any affect, it would only shift things by a week or two, so you can could on this general schedule for planning purposes.

2. I am super excited to announce that a new mod will be joining us here at hp_nextgen_fest! I love this fest, but I was a little overwhelmed running it by myself last year, especially since the timeline overlaps with my other modly duties over at hd_erised. I didn't want to give up this fantastic fest though, so I'm beyond thrilled that the lovely shiftylinguini has offered to help co-mod hp_nextgen_fest and ensure it continues to run like a well-oiled fucking machine. The fest should run more or less the same as usual, but with less frantic hair pulling and wide-eyed panicking on my part behind the scenes. ;)

That's it from me for now, but I hope to see all of you this summer! Keep an eye out for more information as we get closer to August. :D
