International Day of Fanworks Challenge

February 15 has been declared the International Day of Fanworks by the Organization for Transformative Works and the SWG will be participating! Both writers and reviewers are welcome to join us in celebrating our contributions to this important form of creativity! Please review the guidelines below to learn more about how to get involved.

Guidelines for Writers


  1. In order to participate, comment with a request on this post for a writer's prompt. (You can also comment on our Dreamwidth community, send us an ask on Tumblr, or email us.) We will send you three randomly selected prompts from our list of challenges. Your task is to create a fanwork using all three of these challenges.

  2. You may replace one of your assigned challenges with the challenge of your choice. The complete list of SWG challenges can be found here.

  3. Your response should be based in The Silmarillion but may be any length, genre, form, and employ any characters, pairings, or interpretations that you choose. (See our definition of "Silmfic" here.) It is also up to you to determine if your response adequately meets your assigned challenges. Although our challenges are aimed at writers, if you can create another form of fanwork using your challenges, feel free to do so!

  4. Post your challenge here before February 15. Posting instructions for the community can be found here. The community has been temporarily been set to moderated status, and all challenge entries will be unlocked on February 15. Once your story has been unlocked, we encourage you to post it to the SWG archive and any other sites/archives you use!


Guidelines for Reviewers


  1. In order to participate, comment with a request on this post for a reviewer's prompt. (You can also comment on our Dreamwidth community, send us an ask on Tumblr, or email us.) We will send you three randomly selected challenges from our list of challenges with links to the stories that listed those challenges. Your task is to review at least one story created for each of the challenges.

  2. You may replace one of your assigned challenges with the challenge of your choice. The complete list of SWG challenges can be found here.

  3. Leave your reviews and comment here to let us know when you do!
