The Artist Housekeeping Post

To give our artists a heads up on the way they'll be claiming their stories, here's an outline of the way we'll be proceeding with the art claims.

The artist claiming post will go up on Thursday, 9th July at 5:30 p.m. BST. (That's British Summer Time. You can use the World Clock Time Zone Converter to determine the time in your location.)

The claiming post will contain all the story summaries, under a cut, and without the writers' names. The post will be screened, so your friendly mods will be the only ones to see all comments.

Artists should comment to the post, and include their first, second, third, and fourth choices for story claims.

Artists should also let us know whether they are willing to provide art for a second story. (This year we are lucky enough to have more stories than we do artists.)

The mods will do a first pass through the list, starting with the first comment, and assign each artist their first story. If your first choice has already been chosen, you will be assigned your second pick.

We chose this method to ensure:

• that every artist gets a reasonable shot of getting a first or second choice, and…

• that artists who claim early will get their story assigned early, so they can get to work on art as quickly as possible.

Please note that once you have claimed a story, you'll be getting the rough draft of that story, so you don't have to work just from the summary.

Let us know if you have any questions, either in the comments here or by emailing the mods at And thanks once again to our artists for volunteering their time and talent :)
