Summary claiming is now 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!


Thank you!

Summaries available for claiming are located HERE. The prompts are numbered Number 1 through Number 15, 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 mods 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 fifteen summaries first.

If they are not all claimed in a reasonable amount of time, we 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 & 4th 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 SUNDAY JUNE 30 at 7:00 PM BST / 1:00 PM CST!

Check out our countdown here!
26 June 2019 @ 08:19 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 Sunday, June 30.

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

Due to the limited number of summaries, 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.

2019 SummariesCollapse )

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

If you are planning to submit a draft, please contact the mods ASAP so that we can check through it and prepare the artists summaries for claiming. We hope to hear from you soon!
21 June 2019 @ 01:14 pm
Mods Note: Our apologies for the slight delay with this post. Thanks for bearing with us!

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

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 21! (We ask that you please submit your rough drafts and summaries in approximately the next 48-72 hours of this post.) This is also when the artist sign ups close. (If you find you need an extra day, please contact the mods 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 Sunday, June 30, 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 the title of your story in the subject line of your email. (We are asking for titles at this time. However, We 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 we are able to open it.

6. If you have not already seen it, We 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 are still welcome to 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 are we looking for? If you haven't written the ending yet, we 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!

Hello ACBB Writers!

Also, if you are writing more than one story, please fill out the form for each story.

*Remember, rough drafts are due on June 20, and should be at least 15k and/or 60% of your finished story. While we expect some scenes to be missing, drafts should include at least a beginning, middle and a clear plan or outline for the end.
