Tolkien Reverse Summer Bang 2018Tolkien Reverse Summer Bang 2018
What is it?
No, but, Raiy, what is it specifically?
A Reverse Bang is a type of Big Bang event in which artists submit art prompts (up to 3 total, though each prompt can be more than one image/visual artwork). The art prompts are then claimed by writers who will write a piece of fiction based on the prompt chosen.
Big Bang? Wait, are you going to make me write a novel, Narya?!
No, minimum word count is set at 5000 words.
But I don’t have time!
That’s alright, we need cheerleaders, too ;)
Alright, maybe I do have a little bit of time…
