The second round of summary claiming is open for all artists (pre-matched or not)!

There are a couple of summaries still available for claiming, please take a moment to have a look at them!

We still have 2 1 summary left for artists to claim: No.6 & No.7

If they remain unclaimed by midnight CST, I will open them up for second artist claims. That basically means any artist who's signed up for After Camlann can claim them, even if they are already pre-matched or have claimed a summary in the first round. Once they're gone, they're gone!
15 June 2017 @ 01:00 pm
Summaries available for claiming are located HERE. The prompts are numbered No.1 through No.9, the coordinating number for each summary is above it.

If you aren't available to make a claim yourself, claiming by proxy is allowed.

Claims will be on a first come-first serve basis, however due to the limited number of summaries, the mod asks that if you are already pre-matched with an author that you please allow any artists who are not already matched and participating in the big bang the opportunity to claim these nine summaries first.

If they are not all claimed in a reasonable amount of time, I will open a second round of claims for any artist who wants to take on more than one story.

All unmatched artists may claim one summary in the first round. (If there are any unclaimed prompts after everyone has picked, artists will be able to claim again in a second round of claims.)

While you are not required to make three choices in order to make a claim, the mod recommends choosing a 1st, 2nd & 3rd choice for the best results. If you'd rather take your chances with just one or two choices, that's up to you.

Please use the template below, fill it out and leave it as a comment to this entry.

Please Note: Comments are screened. As each summary is claimed, it will be crossed off the summary list in order to make it easier for later-coming claimants to see what's still available.

Summary claiming will open TOMORROW (THURSDAY JUNE 15) at 1:00 PM CST !
11 June 2017 @ 12:23 am
Below you will find the summaries available for artists to claim. Only artists who have officially signed up for After Camlann will be eligible to claim a summary.


Claims will open in a separate post on Thursday, June 15.

If you aren't available to make a claim yourself, claiming by proxy will be allowed.

Due to the small number of summaries (and the large number of pre-matched artists and authors), we will ask that artists who are already pre-matched please wait 24 hours after claims have gone up before claiming another summary. This will give artists who are not already matched with an author opportunity to still do so. Once the first 24 hours has passed, we will allow our pre-matched artists to claim another if they would like to do so!

Claims will be on a first come-first served basis. Please pick a 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th choice. You may claim one summary in the first round. If there are any unclaimed prompts after everyone has picked, then I will open up another round of claims.

Please Note: You are not required to make 4 choices in order to make a claim. If you'd rather take your chances with just one or two choices, that's up to you.

Just a reminder that ROUGH DRAFTS AND SUMMARIES ARE DUE for claiming!

So far we only have about 10 qualified drafts. I do hope a few more of you are planning to submit because we have SO MANY amazing artists signed up!

Please contact the mod ASAP if you are planning to submit a draft! We hope to hear from you soon!

Hello Everyone! The time to submit your rough drafts (15k minimum/65%) and summaries for artist claiming is upon us.

We ask that you please submit your rough drafts and summaries in approximately the next 24-48 hours.

Please Note: If you are already pre-matched with an artist you do not need to submit a rough draft & summary at this time. Rough Draft and Summary Claiming is only for writers seeking an artist for their story.

1. Rough drafts are due on June 5! This is when the artist sign ups close as well. (However, if you need an extra day, please contact the mod at aftercamlann@gmail.com and we may be able to work with you on a very small extension of time. Please keep in mind that summaries go up for CLAIMING on Saturday, June 10 so we are still working on a strict schedule. We will need time to proof each draft and summary before that time, so the earlier you get them to us, the better!)

2. You must have a minimum of 15k to qualify for artist claiming. This rough draft should be approximately 65% of your estimated final word count. Your rough draft must include a beginning, middle and either an ending or a clear plan for the ending.

3. Please send your drafts to: aftercamlann@gmail.com

4. Put your USERNAME and story title in the subject line of your email. (I am asking for titles at this time. However, I realize titling is difficult for some so if you wish to change the title of your story later on, that's perfectly OK.)

5. Please attach your story as a single document in either .txt, .rtf, or .doc, file so that I am able to open it.

6. If you have not already seen it, I highly recommend you read the How To Catch An Artist Guide before writing your summary for artist claiming.

7. Please copy the header from the text box below, paste it into the body of your email, and fill it out completely. (Leaving all html tags intact.)

8. If there is anything else you need the mods to know at this time (concerns about artist matching, etc), please include that in your mail as well.

Writers, if for some reason you can't submit a draft at this time you can still stay in the fest. You can either post as a stand-alone or endeavor to find an artist on your own.

Regarding a plan for the end of your fic: What am I looking for? If you haven't written the ending yet, I want you to include a summary of how you plan to end the fic IN YOUR DRAFT. This can be as simple as copying & pasting part of your outline into the draft. If you don't have an outline, story map or other written plan for your story then just add a short paragraph to the bottom of your draft explaining how you are planning to end the fic.

Please note: Summaries are meant to be anonymous so as not to influence an artist's choice based on who is writing the story.

Any questions? You may ask them here or email the mods at aftercamlann@gmail.com.

Good luck everyone and keep on writing!
