2018 Posting Schedule

Here's the 2018 posting schedule. The mods will reveal the work on AO3, participants might want to 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 and Tumblr. Once the project is live, you're free to crosspost wherever else you'd like.

Reminder #1: Party Favors are due September 15 and will be posted September 16.
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.

Check-In #3

Welcome to the final check-in! We look forward to hearing from you and hope you are having fun! Please read closely as there is a rule change.

Podficcers, when you check in, please let us know what’s going well, any concerns you have, and where you are in regards to meeting the September 2nd deadline.

Writers, as long as your podficcer checks in, you’re not required to, but if you’re up for it we’d love to hear about any particularly positive or negative parts of your experience. The positive will make us smile, and the negative will give us an opportunity to offer help or give us valuable feedback that will help us tweak next year’s challenge to be better!

Rule Change: A number of streaming players no longer work on AO3 due to site changes that affect embedded objects. Therefore, this year we'll allow click-through streaming (via sites like Dropbox or Soundcloud, for example) as an acceptable alternative to embedded streaming. For those who do still wish to include embedded streaming, we recommend using the player at, which still works on AO3. Please let us know if you need any help!

Some important notes/reminders:

  1. Remember to share any edited audio you have with your partner, and let them know what you’ve accomplished so far.

  2. Podficcers, please make sure you have given your writers some love about the work that they’ve done. Tell them what you think is great about their words. Sometimes in the rush to get things done, this step gets skipped, but it’s so important to everyone having a good experience! (Writers, once you hear the podfic, make sure you give your partner some love as well.)

  3. If you think it would enhance your podfic to have multiple voices contribute, please let us know and we’d be happy to find you volunteers!

Check-In #2

Hello rock stars,

It's time for our second check-in! Please try to 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 August 5th. The early submission deadline is this Wednesday, August 1st. You can find posting instructions here.

If you're feeling confident in your ability to finish the writing on time, we look forward to hearing about it and we always love to hear about what's going well in your partnerships. If you are having problems in your partnership, we're also happy to hear about those and help suggest ideas for troubleshooting!

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 an extension. Please note this year's extension policy: "Each partner may request only one extension. Extensions of three days will be given with no questions asked. If more time is needed, you can receive an extension of up to 7 days total, but you will be required to include a plan for how you intend to finish within that time. Writing out the plan will help you structure your time and keep yourself accountable, and we can use our modly wisdom and experience to give you feedback and ideas that might make your plan even better."

  • 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 scheduled 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. This means not just an update of your progress but sharing your draft itself. 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.

Early Writing Deadline Announcement

Hi everyone,

We’re thrilled to hear from so many groups at check-in that writing is going well so far. For some groups, writing is nearly finished! We mods have been talking together about a way to celebrate early finishing, and we’ve decided to implement an optional early writing submission deadline this year, which will be August 1st. Like the early podfic submission deadline, the early writing submission deadline will be the Wednesday before the normal deadline (which is on a Sunday). And, like the early podfic submission deadline, the early writing submission deadline will help the project have an earlier posting date. Here’s how posting order will work this year:

  1. projects that met the early writing AND early podfic submission deadlines

  2. projects that met the early writing OR early podfic submission deadlines*

  3. all other projects

We know this twist is coming a bit late in the game, and we want to be clear that it’s totally fine to NOT shoot for the early deadline. If it feels exciting and motivating to aim for that date, go for it! If it feels stressful, feel free to ignore it entirely. The number one most important thing is that you and your partner have an enjoyable collaborative experience.

Please let us know if you have any questions. If not, we look forward to hearing from you at the next check-in!

Check-In #1

Today is our first check-in! You can check in over email or on this DW post (the comments on this post are screened, so your check-in here will be private between you and the mods).

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 Sunday August 5th. 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 concerns you may have about your group or your project. Both writers and podficcers are invited to check in to let us know how their experience is so far. We'll follow up in 48 hours with any groups where we haven't heard from at least one partner.

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'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!

Icebreaker Week: Day 5

Today's questions focus on fanworks you've already made and will help partners become more familiar with each other's 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! Quick reminder, the first check in is on July 15th but, as always, you're welcome to contact the mods at any time for whatever reason.

Icebreaker Week: Day 4

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.

  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.
