Queue Closing
We would like to announce the temporary closing of the submission queue to unvalidated authors.  We have a backlog of stories in our beta queue and with Phoenix Rising upcoming we need to get caught up.  The Captains will be in New Orleans drinking representing the Quidditch Pitch.

From Friday, April 20th through Monday, May 28th, the queue will be closed.  You can still submit your stories, they will simply be held unprocessed until after May 28th.

You can still participate in the challenge.  All challenge fics should be emailed directly to annie@thequidditchpitch.org.  Remember all challenge stories are subject to Terms of Submission but will not go through the beta process.

Any drabbles will still be posted as they do not require beta work.

Thank you for your patience in allowing us to get caught up!

Phoenix Rising
After waiting for a very long time and planning nearly as long, Phoenix Rising starts next Thursday.  The Captains will be unavailable beginning Wednesday, May 16th.  Most of us should be back online in our usual odd capacity around Tuesday, May 22nd.  We hope to see you in New Orleans!

Please stop by our table on Artists & Authors Night Saturday night as well as pay a visit to our two roundtable discussions, (1) How to Build a Better Fandom Through Archives on Saturday at 10 a.m. in the Nottoway Ballroom; and (2) Building Community Through Archives Sunday at noon in the Grand Ballroom B.

May/June Monthly Challenge

The One With All the Endings Challenge

Time is drawing short for the Harry Potter series.  In just a few months we'll have many of the answers we've been seeking since the first book.  Everyone has their own theory about how the series will end and The Quidditch Pitch is challenging you to put quill to parchment and write your version of the ending.

This challenge will be a two-month long challenge, allowing authors the time to develop and organize their ideas.

The Rules

  1. All stories must be a minimum of 500 words.
  2. All stories should be prebetad.
  3. All stories must be meet our submission guidelines.
  4. All stories must be submitted by 29 June 2007 at 11:59 p.m. EST.
  5. Voting will commence on 01 July 2007 and end on 12 July 2007.
  6. The winner will get a $10.00 gift certificate to the movie theater of their choice.
Good luck!
