On November 30, 2012, at 3:00 pm Eastern Time, The #SciFiChat on Twitter will engage in Fantasy World-Building for Shared-World Anthology. This is the first of a two-part exercise.
The chatters of SciFiChat have asked that we once again engage in a shared-world project for an anthology. In this first part, the chat will begin to collaborate on writer’s guidelines for a fantasy world setting that various authors will use to create a short story. Authors will be able to submit their stories for publication in an anthology from Flying Pen Press once the guidelines have been published on this blog site. The anthology will likely carry 15-20 stories, each 1,500 to 8,000 words long.
This is only the first part of this exercise. This will likely take two or three sessions until we get a general consensus on a world setting.
SciFiChat seeks an editor to write the final official guidelines and to pick stories from those submitted for publication in the anthology. If interested, please contact me, or send me a tweet by Twitter.
There will be a social hour before #SciFiChat, beginning at 2:00 pm Eastern Time.
The moderator of #SciFiChat is @DavidRozansky. To monitor or participate in #SciFiChat, sign in to the Twitterchat tool of your choice and use the hashtag #SciFiChat. Please introduce yourself to the chatters.
