I am super pleased to be modding the exchange this year. The sign-up post will go up on January 31st, so you have two weeks to start thinking about your requests, and to spread the word!
While you're waiting for the sign-up post, please feel free to review the rules below.

Additional points to keep in mind:
1. Please do some research before creating fic or art about places and peoples with which you're only vaguely familiar, and ensure that your work doesn't perpetuate oppressive, discriminatory tropes and attitudes. The Beholder community has been fantastic so far in these areas, and it would be great if we could keep it that way. If you have any questions about whether your work might be problematic in its conception or execution, write to the Mod.
2. This exchange is anonymous. I will be posting all completed works to the community to preserve the authors' and artists' anonymity until the end of the exchange. To that end, please make sure that your work is free of any identifying markers (such as a signature or watermark on art and the appearance of established OCs in stories) and that you remain discreet in your journals.
3. All completed work—1000-word minimum files (.txt or .rtf or .doc) with html coding on stories, please—and all questions should be sent to me at: beholder.mod [at] gmail [dot] com
For the 2013 edition, the timeline is as follows:
Hope to see you all in two weeks!
