The Exchange at Fic Corner 2017 Schedule
June 3rd - Brainstorming Post will open; Any Changes to Eligibilty Rules will be posted (none this year).
June 9th - June 17th - Nominations
June 17th - June 18th - Vetting
June 18th - June 27th - Sign-Ups
June 28th - Assignments Sent Out
August 21st - Deadline for Stories
August 28th - Collection Goes Live
While I was hoping to shift the schedule to Memorial Day (last Monday in May) to Labor Day (first Monday in September), I'm late getting started this year. I've also moved sending out assignments earlier as I can't guarantee I'll have time to deal with issues the last weekend of June.

Go forth and brainstorm in the comments.

Got a favo(u)rite kids or YA book or series or story you want other people to write for or request? Want to know if you're "the only one" who ever read that one particular book or who loves that certain character?

Some helpful brainstorming links provided by [personal profile] elf and a few added by me.

Links to other Youth Awards from ALA including the Batchelder (translation) and Belpre (Hispanic/Latino). Scroll down for links to the Coretta Scott King (African-American/Black) and Printz (YA) The Notable Books lists linked in the sidebar are also of interest.

Note that we're ending earlier this year. I keep crashing into Yuletide, and I need a little more space there. There will be no changes to the eligibility rules this year, so go ahead and poke at the FAQ and start thinking about what you want to nominate. Note that the dates on that post still reflect 2015 and won't be updated till Saturday, June 3.

Fic corner will be running again this year. However I've been ill, so don't expect a schedule till next weekend. I'll also be shifting the assignments either a week forward or a week back, as I'll be away the last weekend in June.

As you may know, last year towards the end of the exchange I was tapped to run Yuletide. The shift in dates means that they won't collide the way they did last year. Observant participants will note that the dates now run Memorial Day (last Monday in May) to Labor Day (first Monday in September) - I've tied them more closely to the school schedule in my area and here they should remain. Assignments go out the last week of school and are now due the first week of school where I live. ;)

Got a favo(u)rite kids or YA book or series or story you want other people to write for or request? Want to know if you're "the only one" who ever read that one particular book or who loves that certain character?

The proper brainstorming post will open in a month, but feel free to go forth in the comments and pimp your favo(u)rites.
