Answers to Your Questions


Hello fellow authors,

We've had several questions about contributions over the last few days and I just wanted to take a moment to answer those for all of you in one fell swoop.

* The sign-up and submission deadline is October 21st, 2010. Just so long as you have your contribution to us by midnight EST on the 21st, you're welcome to sign-up whenever you wish.

* If you're submitting a banner with your contribution, please attach it as a .png or .jpg file to your email instead of embedding it directly into your o/s.

* If you'd like to post teasers of your contribution to your blog, please feel free to do so. We'll be posting brief teasers to the blog here later this month for those who wish to do so. If you'd like to submit a teaser to be used, please let us know!

* Your contributions can be any length, pairing, rating, etc. The only thing we ask is that you don't include rape, incest or abuse, and use appropriate disclaimers if necessary (ie: This story contains graphic violence).

* You can post your contribution to your FFn profile, blog, etc after December 15th. We ask that you wait until then to ensure that everyone who has donated to receive the compilation has two weeks beyond the end of the fundraiser to read and enjoy.

*Fandom for Preemies is not an auction, but a compilation. Every author that signed up will submit a story (one-shot, outtake, futuretake, original story, etc). They will then be compiled into, for lack of a better term, an anthology in .PDF format. Everyone who donates at least $5 to the March of Dimes in November and forwards us the receipt will then receive the entire anthology. Instead of just receiving a story from one author, they'll receive them from every author that signed up in one pretty document.

I think that about covers it. If you have a question not answered here, please let us know!

Thank you for signing up to help out and happy writing!
Ayden and the FFP Team

  1. I'm not sure how it all works, but I thought the bidder got to request the type of writing they wanted?

  2. That's how it works with the auctions, such as Fandom Gives Back. With Fandom for Preemies, we opted to do a compilation. Every author that signed up will submit a story (one-shot, outtake, futuretake, original story, etc). They will then be compiled into, for lack of a better term, an anthology in .PDF format. Everyone who donates at least $5 to the March of Dimes in November and forwards us the receipt will then receive the entire anthology. Instead of just receiving a story from one author, they'll receive them from every author that signed up in one pretty document.
