“We can put you into the story. The medium isn’t real. The experience it creates in me is what’s real.” ~ Zander Greene, Fantasy Faire The Drax Files : World Makers Episode 4
We invite you to put your Fantasy Faire experience into words. The Faire is brimming with stories: breathtaking builds and fantastical creations designed to touch your heart and soul. What stories do they inspire in you?
Returning to Fantasy Faire’s Literary Fest this year are our LitFest Tours, leaving daily at 5.00pm from our home base on Halls of Story to explore the Fairelands.
How does it work? Three simple steps:
- Join your guide at the top of the session, and travel to one of the ten unique fantasy regions. Explore the region and open yourself up to what inspires you, what detail or overall impression sparks a poem, micro-fiction, or short story.
- Return to LitFest home base (or your own personal quiet space) and realize in words the narrative and feelings inspired by the region featured.
- Share your work in draft or final with the rest of the tour in a voluntary open mic, or submit your piece within 24 hours – either inworld or by email – to be posted online along with others inspired by the same region. Some of the these tales will be chosen for broadcast on Fantasy Faire Radio, and may also appear on the Fantasy Faire channel on You Tube. If you do NOT wish your work broadcast, please indicate this on your submission.
- Individual writers retain creative ownership of works shared.
Your guide is there to provide assistance.
