Last autumn, when sign-ups for yuletide (the rare fandoms holiday fic exchange) were just about to get underway, it looked as if Discworld would no longer be eligible as a rare fandom. "Oh well," I thought. "If it's no longer eligible, I can always participate in some long-established Discworld fic and art Fest. However, I couldn't find any such community, so here, then, is Disc Fest - an anonymous (gen, het, and slash) fest designed to encourage the creation of fiction and art based on characters from Terry Pratchett's wonderful Discworld series.




Basic Disc Fest Information:


* Mirror communities have been set up on LiveJournal and Dreamwidth (I'd encourage everybody to subscribe to both communities if possible, but all fic and art will be posted to both comms when the time comes)

*Starting Saturday, the 7th of May, posts will be made on both communities , soliciting prompts for this year's Fest. Note: you do not have to be a member of the community, nor do you have to participate to leave prompts.

*All prompts will be collected and organized for a Claiming Post, scheduled for May 25 (i.e., the Glorious 25th of May!)

*Prompts can be claimed from 25 May through 1 June, 2011 - and all prompts will be available to artists and authors alike.

*The deadline to submit all Fic and Art is 20 July, 2011, and the header all participants need to use is here :

Header Template



Note: I'll be removing artist/author names from the headers for the first week to preserve the illusion of anonymity.

*27 July, 2011: Disc Fest goes live!

*3 August: Authors and Artists names will be revealed.

Is there a word count minimum on fic?

Are there limits on number of prompts to claim?

(I'm trying to lay out my writing commitments for the summer.)

500 word minimum on fic (and no upper limit!)

Participants can claim two prompts at a time, but no more until they've submitted their fic/art entries.

(and up to three people can claim each prompt, except for prompt #1, which will be a wild card prompt for people who really, really want to write/draw something that's not covered by any of the specific prompts)

And what I hope is the final question: can prompts be posted tomorrow - that is, on the 25th?

(I had a root canal today and was therefore not quite with it this evening ... .)

I'm going to post the prompt table tomorrow, but I'll wait until 1:30/2:00 in the afternoon (NY time) to give you a chance to add something.

Thanks ... eh, I just posted a batch. Turns out I'd been thinking about it without knowing it. And just as well: I'll be at work when your deadline comes up.

Heh...there's nothing like an approaching deadline to focus one's fannish mind. :)
