Name: (The name by which you'd like to be referred. Alias, nickname, or twitter handle welcomed.)
Twitter Handle: (Optional - You may put a URL here instead if you want - an about.me or personal profile page would work.)
Blog Name: (The name of your site you want people to see. If you don't have one, that's cool.)
URL: (Your blog or whatever site you want to be linked. Article URLs will come later.)
Area of Submission: (A one-word description of what you're writing about, like "Race" or "Adventure". Multiple submissions are OK, just note each.)
System: (Something like "D&D 4E" if specific or "Any" if usable anywhere.)
Title: (The working title of your article(s). Try to be specific. Actual article titles will be used when submitted.)
Guest/Linked: (Use "Guest" if you want me to publish your article as a Guest Blogger. Use "Linked" if you'll publish on your site and I'll make a link to the article. I hope to have icons for each.)
Here's a clean list of what I'm looking for to copy and paste into the comments.
Area of Submission:
If I were submitting, my comment would look like this:
Twitter Handle: @twwombat
Blog Name: Wombat's Gaming Den of Iniquity
Area of Submission: Monster
System: D&D 4eTitle: Icicle? No, Ice Piercer!
- (Guest Blogger Icon) T.W.Wombat of Wombat's Gaming Den of Iniquity wrote up a D&D 4e Monster in his article Icicle? No, Ice Piercer! It's about time the classic Piercer got a little 4e action!
(No, I'm not writing up a winter-flavored Piercer. It's just an example.)
I'll compile participants in this spreadsheet so people can more easily check out other entries. I would encourage people submitting something with a similar title or submitting to the same area to touch base with each other to steer clear of duplication, especially in a focused area like "Terrain". Maybe a grand collaboration will come out of that initial contact - who knows?
Here's the current spreadsheet:
Before Signing Up, Be Thou Warned:
1) I reserve the right to play Editor on Guest Posts and to delete links to crap articles. I won't publish any changes without author approval.
2) Bring your best to this festival. You're showing off your work to the world. I'm sure "ICE DRAGGINZ IS AWESUM!" works for your friends, but consider that someone out there wants to use your work in their game. Let them. Please keep your writing focused, readable, clean and tight.
Once you sign up, grab a logo and put it on your site somewhere. Fly your festival colors, or black-and-whites as the case may be.
DEADLINE for participant sign-ups will be Noon Eastern Time on Thursday, 22 September 2011. Anyone signing up after that date may or may not be included on the main page for sanity reasons. It's gonna be a busy festival for this Wombat, so please be patient.
DEADLINE for articles depends on how much work I need to do. If you want to be a guest blogger and have me publish your article I'll want it sometime on Friday for the start of the festival, but I'll need it by Monday 26 September or I may not have time to read and format it. If you're publishing your article on your site I'll want the link as soon as you publish, and I'll need your link by Thursday 29 September at the latest. To submit, please follow the instructions and leave a comment on the Submission Page so I can keep my workflow organized.
If you're late with your article, don't sweat it. Life happens; I get that. I don't maintain a black list for bloggers who are late or anything like that. Get it to me when you can and I'll get it on the site when I can. Fair?
Thanks for your interest!
