    9. Collaborations between writers are also allowed. Just please let us know when you sign up if you are planning on writing with a partner.

    Important Dates

    Please sign-up to participate by February 28.

    Your rough draft and story summary should be turned in by June 28. A lot of us scribble right down to the wire, and we fully realise this. But it is important that something be handed in at this date for our artists to see. Big Bangs are collaborative and our artists also need time to work and get ideas together.

    On July 5, your draft/summary will be posted (anonymously) for a participating artist to claim as a prompt. The artist will create at the very least one piece of art (title banner, illustration, manip, etc.) to accompany your story. Alternately, a vidder may do a trailer for your story.

    Your final draft should be completed by August 20.

    Our posting schedule will begin in September.

    To sign up

    Please comment below with your Author name and LJ username (if applicable). If the author is not on LJ and someone is commenting here on their behalf, then please leave us a contact email.

    All that remains for right now is:
