Here's the posting schedule. The mods will reveal the work on AO3, so all participants might want to do on that day is update the posting date on their work, so it'll show up on fandom RSS feeds. Unfortunately, AO3 won't let you list a posting date in the future, so you'll have to manually change it on the day you want it to show on the RSS.

Please be sure to have your work ready for your reveal day, with the podfic links and streaming in the body of the work. The mods will check all posts prior to their posting date and contact you with any issues we see, but please double-check your own posts as well in case we miss something. Mods will reveal on AO3 and crosspost to this comm on DW, LJ, and Tumblr. Once the project is live, you're free to crosspost wherever else you'd like.

Reminder #1: Party Favors are due August 26, and will be posted August 27.
Reminder #2: To those participants with extensions, please remember that your due date is our agreed-upon extension date, not your posting date. However, if you would like to turn in a postable draft at your deadline and then update it between then and your posting date, you may.

Schedule )

Please let us know if there are any problems with the schedule, and we will update accordingly.

Many of you are in the final stages of your projects, and so it's time for our post to help people who might be interested in Party Favors find each other. In case you've never done a Party Favor before, here's what you need to know:

-There is no word minimum
-There's no official commitment involved—mods usually don't even know a Party Favor is being planned until it's turned in!
-The deadline is Friday, August 26th
-Party Favors are a revealed on Saturday, August 27th

If you are interested in creating a Party Favor but don't have a partner in mind, feel free to leave a comment here and the mods will help spread the word. If you see anybody looking for a partner here, just respond to them directly and you're good to go!

This is the last official check-in before the project completion deadline on August 14th. Don't forget that completed projects submitted before August 10th get special consideration when it comes to early posting dates.

(If you are someone who would find additional check-ins helpful, please let us know, and we'd be happy to schedule a follow-up check-in with you between now and the deadline!)

Remember to share what you've done so far with your partner, which means that if you have a partial podfic completed, now is the time to send that to your partner. Also, if you haven't given your writer feedback about their work, please take that opportunity to do it now. We've found that it's often very important to pod_together participants to have their work acknowledged and appreciated by their partners, and sometimes with the rush to meet deadlines, this important step in the process can get overlooked! So this is your official reminder to send some love and support to your partner :)

And of course, please let us know any ways we can support you. Options include:
-Putting out a call for a co-podficcer for part of the story
-Putting out a call for an editor to help edit your podfic
-Additional check-ins/cheerleading/podfic betas

If you think you'll need an extension, please let us know. And as a reminder, the posting period this year is much shorter than it's been in years past, so we're limited in how long an extension we can give.

Okay, we look forward to hearing from you! We hope you are having fun!

The written component of pod_together is due this Saturday, July 16th (unless you've made arrangements for an extension). If the written component is already completed, feel free to upload early. Podfics are due August 14th, and are also welcome to be submitted early (remember, podfics posted by August 10rd get earlier reveal dates!)

Projects will all be posted on AO3. If you don't have an account with AO3, then please let us know and we'll send you an invitation.

Submission Instructions )

If you’ve never posted to AO3 before, or if you’d like some visual aids, here are 2013's step-by-step instructions for how. Just be sure to update the dates and submit to the correct collection.

[personal profile] klb
Hello wonderful participants,

It's time for our second check-in! Please respond to this check-in within 48 hours. We will send a follow-up email to all those we have not heard from at that time.

The complete writing is due in one week, on July 16th. If you're not feeling confident in your ability to finish the writing within the next 7 days, please let us know and we can talk about:

-The possibility of extensions (please read the rules about extensions before requesting one)*.
-The possibility of getting a beta or cheerleader
-The possibility of getting a cowriter
-The possibility of writing a shorter version of your original story plan for your podficcer to begin recording (which is able to stand alone in case a life emergency stops you from writing more) with the agreement that if there is time and interest by both parties, you might create additional scenes later to add on.
-The possibility of (with your partner's approval) leaving some areas of the script for podficcer ad-lib
-The option of daily accountability check-ins, if that will help keep you motivated and not stressed!

Also, please remember to share what you've written so far with your partner. The minimum requirement is once per check-in!

Finally, if you're realizing that what you really need in order to take care of yourself is to drop out, that's fine. Yay self-care! Please let us know as soon as possible, though, so we can offer your partner a pinch hitter. If anybody reading this knows that they are interested in pinch hitting, please feel free to let us know, and you will be the first we approach if the need arises.

Comments are screened.

*A note about extensions: Writers, please keep extension requests to eight days or less, since any longer than that will cut significantly into the time allotted for the podficcer to create their audio. Podficcers, please do not tell your partners that they can have a multi-week extension because you only need a couple of days to create your audio! Even if you are typically fast, you may experience an emergency like losing your voice from a cold, a computer crash, etc. For this reason, mods won't approve the long extension you've promised your partner, and it could lead to hurt feelings all around. If you're fast, use that speed to get your podfic finished early, and then come sign up to work on a Party Favor (if you'd like)!

Our first round of check-ins has revealed two participants who need pinch hit partners:

Writer needed in Star Wars VII, Marvel Comics, Sleepy Hollow, Pacific Rim, Rosewood, The Wicked + The Divine, Hamilton, Lucifer, or Limitless. This should be someone who is comfortable drafting pretty independently after initial conversations with the podficcer. (Pinch Hit Found!)

Podficcer needed in Star Wars VII (Finn/Poe and/or Rey) or MCU (Bucky/Sam or Bucky/Nat). This should be someone who is interested in a high level of interaction and collaboration during both the writing and podficcing parts of the challenge. (Pinch Hit Found!)

Please let us know if you are interested, and pass this along to anyone who you think might be interested. We’re hoping to find both of these participants new partners ASAP, since the writing deadline is three weeks away!

Thank you to our pinch hitters for the quick response!

Today is our first check-in! You can check in over email, tumblr, twitter, LJ, or DW—whichever feels most comfortable to you.

Now is also a good time to touch base with your partner(s). Remember that sharing your work-in-progress with your partner(s) is mandatory, and that the minimum requirement is once per check-in. That means that, if you haven't already shared what you have so far, now is the time to do so. Partners, don’t forget to give feedback/encouragement on the work-in-progress when you see it!

Completed writing is due in 3 weeks, on July 16th. When you check in this weekend, let us know if you feel on track for that deadline so far. We'd also love to know what's going well in your group and any worries you may have about your group or your project. Comments on LJ/DW are screened, and Asks on tumblr will not be published.

It's very early in the game, so if you are anticipating difficulty, this would be a great time to start discussing problem-solving options (we've already successfully put together 2 replacement matchups for partnerships where a problem was identified early). We're extremely committed to making sure all participants have as positive an experience as possible! And if everything’s going awesome, YAY, we can’t wait to hear all about it!

Today's questions focus on fanworks you've already made and will help partners become more familiar with each others' work.

  1. Share a piece of a fanwork you're particularly proud of (a page or so of a written work, a few minutes of an audio work) and explain why you're proud of it.

  2. Read/listen to your partner's shared fanwork, and give feedback about what works for you about it.

This is our last icebreaker. We hope that groups have found them informative and helpful! Remember, the first check in is on June 25th but, as always, you're welcome to contact the mods at any time for any reason.

Today's questions dig a little deeper into what makes group work work or not work for each person, and then goes on to begin (or continue!) the conversation about options for collaboration on each part of your project. There are also a couple of questions that touch on emergency planning.

  1. Tell your partner about a good and a bad group work experience you've had, either in fandom or at school or work (or other). What made the good one good? What made the bad one bad? What did you learn about yourself and what makes group work successful for you?

  2. Suggest ways that the podficcer might be involved in the writing process that would work well for you.

  3. Suggest ways that the writer might be involved in the podficcing process that would work well for you.

  4. Sometimes life emergencies arise. Make an emergency plan!
    • How many days without communication between your team do you think should be limit before someone reaches out to the mods to tell them a teammate is MIA?
    • Are there any alternate ways of contacting you that you'd like your partner(s) to have?
    • If an emergency does arise, what would be your preferred way of dealing with it? Bringing on another team member to help out with writing/sound effects/editing/etc? Dropping out (and telling the mods ASAP so a pinch hitter can be found for your partner)? Having a less intensive back-up project idea in mind to switch to if needed? If you're the podficcer, recording a draft early so that if you lose your voice or are otherwise unable to record later on, you have an emergency back-up recording you can edit? What other thoughts or ideas about this do you have?


For your aural pleasure
