10:09 pm - Free Verse Challenge Masterlist and Story Depository
The official deadline for Free Verse stories was July 15. This masterlist contains all of the stories that have been submitted so far. Enjoy, and check back for updates as delayed stories are added!

If your story is going to be late, don't panic. I am happy to accept late stories; it's not like you're writing for a recipient who is going to be waiting with bated breath. Take your time, finish your story, and link to it in the comments when you're done. Keep in mind, though, that there are some benefits to getting your story in on time. There will be a lot of people browsing this masterlist in the next couple of days-- if your story is here for people to find, you'll attract a larger audience for your work. Also, when you turn in your story, you'll get to see a link to the full text of the poem that your snippet was taken from.

When you're ready to submit your story, comment to this post. Use the form below to submit a link to your story. Note that you cannot post stories to this community. Any kind of link is fine: your LJ, a post to a community, a non-LJ webpage. For the masterlist, I need only the information below.

Name/lj name: (try to use the same one you signed up with)
Title of story:
(If applicable. Please spell out characters' names, as your fandom is not necessarily my fandom.)
Link to the story:

11:00 pm - Signups are closed!
As promised, I'm closing signups as of right now. Everybody should have their assignment by midnight tonight. Please let me know if you haven't received yours, or if you need me to resend your poem.

Remember that stories are due on July 15. If you won't be able to post on that day but have your story done ahead of time, you can e-mail it to me, and I'll hold it until the due date. If you think your story will be late, or if you have to drop out, please let me know. There will be more specific posting/linking instructions closer to the due date.

Thank you so much to everyone who has signed up! You're a tremendously diverse group of over 100 people, and I'm looking forward to reading your stories.

08:01 pm - Read this! And then sign up here!

ETA: Signups are now closed.

I kept putting off another round of the Free Verse Challenge, but there finally seems to be no better time than the present. So here, in this shiny new community, I'm announcing it officially:

The Free Verse Challenge, Round 2

Instructions and explanations are offered in the form of a FAQ.

Information behind the cut-tag.Collapse )

Have fun!


1. I have no idea why all the comments are in boldface. I've made some attempts to correct it but decided that there are more pressing problems facing the world.

2. I'm making assignments in screened comments. Please bug me if a few days have gone by and you can't find yours - it means LJ burped somehow, and I'll e-mail your assignment directly.
