Otter and Ferret Mini-Fest 2013: Prompts and Submission Instructions

Otter and Ferret Mini-Fest 2013 is here!

Otter and Ferret Mini-Fest is a prompt pick-up mini-fest, whereby all prompts from sign-ups and those left by pinch-hitters are offered up as free-game for the week or so prior to Otter and Ferret works reveals. The intention is to have a fun, low-key mini-fest of small works.

Sign-up date/deadline: N/A

Due date: April 28, 2013

Reveals date: April 29, 2013

No sign-ups are required. One simply needs an AO3 account so that one can post work to the collection. Works should be posted as a gift to the prompter. There is no limit to how many times a prompt may be filled.

All Otter and Ferret Mini-Fest works must be under 1,000 words. If a work is 1,000 words or more, it should be posted as a gift to the prompter as part of the Otter and Ferret Forever annual collection.

Also, exchange participants can fill their own sign-up prompts. If you're filling your own prompt and think that your prompt can be identified or just want to throw people off the trail, go ahead and gift your fic to yourself! (AO3 will let you enter your own username into the "Gift this work to" box).
