Happy August, snapecase participants, alternates, and members!
Participants and alternates, you now have about three months to complete, have beta'd, and submit your showcase entries by 11:59 p.m. (Eastern Time) on 31 October 2010. Please contact me at snapecase [at] gmail [dot] com if you have any questions or concerns about your entries.
Members, I recently tapped the Category One alternate to replace someone who had to drop out, so I'm now looking for someone to become the new Category One alternate (preference will be given to anyone who has already signed up to pinch-hit but is not otherwise involved in the fest). Alternates follow the same rules and have the same deadline as showcase participants; if a participant drops out, the alternate for her category takes her place. The work of untapped alternates will be promoted in the reveal post on 31 January 2011 unless I receive showcase entries from all participants and a full complement of alternates by the deadline; in that case, I will extend the fest's run by a week.
Potential pinch-hitters, I'll be in touch with you shortly after the submission deadline should I find myself with showcase positions to fill.
Thank you, everyone, for helping me to celebrate Severus Snape throughout his ages!
