Getting our act together

Huge thanks to everyone who dropped in last week ♥ I'm officially declaring there to be enough interest for us to have another Happyfest this year.

DATES AND IMPORTANT STUFF

~ The prompt post will open on Monday, 9th August and close on Friday, 13th August.

~ Stories can be posted in comments from Monday, 16th August and the fest will run for 2 weeks, closing on Sunday, 29th August.

~ As usual, I'll be limiting folks to 10 prompts and will need everyone to follow the formatting guidelines, but there'll be more about that on the prompt post.

~ This year, you can also use the prompts to create happy art, so you don't have to be a writer to join in.

~ If you'd like to make a banner/icon/header image/anything pretty for the comm, please do so! I'm happy to host images, so feel free to just email attachments to me on jadesfire2808[at]gmail.com or send me a link and I'll DL them. Generally happy art would be extremely welcome, since we cover so many fandoms, but if you want to make one just for your fandom, that'd be great too.

~ Promotion! The previous success of the fest has entirely been down to you guys spreading the word. When the prompt post goes up, please do post to your LJ about it, grab a banner and generally let everyone know! If anyone could stick a banner in a fandom-specific comm, please let me know which one! There's a list below of all the main 'noticeboards' that I know about, but I have a limited fannish range and help is always appreciated.

Thank you, all! And watch this space :)

Fannish noticeboards I know about, many pulled from the Newbie Guides. Please let me know of any more, or if these are out of date! Also, the really huge fandoms - Harry Potter, Star Trek et al aren't here because I don't even know where to begin with them...
