It's a bimonthly edition of this FK bulletin! Only because I didn't manage to post one at the turn of the year. So for the months of December and January both, in Forever Knight, in my corners of social journaling, here are the items that I spotted:
Ficathons, fests and communities
- fkficfest/fkficfest will post its annual pre-game poll in February. Do you want to play this year? If so, how do you want to play? If not, what would inspire you to want to play?
- halfamoon/halfamoon, an annual multifandom, multimedia fest celebrating female characters, is on from February 1 through 14.
- pbam, the "Porn Battle Amnesty" game, is holding a "golden oldies" bonus round (in leiu of the usual new game, which is apparently not being held this year) from February 15 through February 25.
- rarelywritten (formerly rarewomen), an annual ficathon celebrating underrepresented characters, is accepting nominations through February 7. Sign-ups will be February 15 through March 1.
- onedeadplotbunny is a new support/motivation community for writers. Their first round begins February 1.
- fandom_stocking, an annual multifandom, multimedia, wishlist fest, released in early January. Check out what was stuffed in the stockings that requested FK!
- Yuletide released on Christmas Eve. Check out what FK wishes were filled.
- This Yuletide brought 2 FK stories:
- This Fandom Stocking brought 10 FK stories:
