We have a bit of a dilemma, in that we only received 22 prompts for our 2017 Dark Witches fest. I don't want to put on a fest that nobody is interested in, so I thought I'd ask the community what they thought the best course of action was. Since the fest hasn't run since 2013, I think the problem is that we haven't got a lot of the newer people to fandom.

I'd be very grateful if you could take part in this short poll :)

Poll #2066748 What should we do about the fest?

What do you think is the best option?

Extend prompting and advertise more
14(77.8%)
Open claiming with the 22 prompts received
1(5.6%)
Give up on the fest
1(5.6%)
Other (please reply in comments)
2(11.1%)

If you think we should extend prompting, how much longer should we give?



Any and all comments will be very much appreciated ♥

I'm happy to announce that darkwitches is returning this year for it's third round! There is one major change, and that's the style of the fest. The last two fests were exchange fests, however I think this time we'll try it as an anonymous prompt based fest.

As such, the timeline is as follows:

Prompting: 1st - 14th April
Claiming: 17th April
Submissions due: 1st July
Posting starts: 10th July

Rules and pimping banners will follow in the next few weeks. I really hope you'll join me for this year's fest!

It's a brand new fest focusing on the dark and angsty side of pairings with an age disparity, and they've just opened claiming! All pairings have a 10 year age disparity and there are loads of lovely prompts to choose from, so you should hope on over there and check them out!

It's a really fun and unique competition, sort of like a much larger LDWS, inspired by one word prompts allowing for a variety of characters and pairings :D If you like a good time, you should definitely check this out! :D
