Sign-ups for the 2009 round of the Small Fiction Big Bang will be starting June 1, (or thereabouts) with an anticipated completion date of October 31st. Rules should be roughly the same as last year. More details and a formal rules post forthcoming.
Any questions? Feel free to ask.
There will be no extensions on this deadline.
(And I know there's at least one more story to go:) If you have any questions or problems uploading your story, you can respond to this post and we'll help you get it up.
The first month of this round of the SFBB has passed, and now is the time to ask authors to check in (just to make sure they're still with us:) Comments are screened, so you can put as much or as little in your responses as you'd like: word counts, rants, raves, and sobbing are all welcome. Thanks!
It's that time again! Authors can request audience readers and cheerleaders at this point. Once you've reached 20,000 words, you can request a beta. We can't promise anything (the downside of having the challenge open to all fandoms), but we will do our best to find volunteers to meet your needs.
To request a volunteer: respond to this post with the following information (note that you must include *all* information if you would like your request to be passed on):
-What resource are you requesting (audience reader/cheerleader)
-Pairing (if none, say 'gen')
-Warnings (when in doubt *warn* -- we has some problems last time with volunteers not knowing what they were getting into and as a result, our volunteer pool is much smaller this time around)
We are in dire need of additional volunteers. If you are interested in helping with the SFBB, please join our Yahoo Group (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sfbb_volunteers/). This way you'll see all available jobs and can pick the one that interests you most.
Good luck to our authors!
