SMASH STORY EXCHANGE!
#1
WELCOME TO THE FIRST EVER SMASH STORY EXCHANGE!

You will create a wishlist for a short story and a secret SMASHgenie will grant your wishes!  In turn, you will be a SMASHgenie for someone else!  
SMASHpoints will be awarded for participation and for submitting your story on time!

Sign-ups: Jan 23-30
Assignments: Jan 31
START WRITING: Feb 1
Stories due: Mar 1

SIGN-UP: Please fill out this Google form to enter the exchange. Don’t forget to fill out your wishlist! SMASHstaff will contact you with your recipient’s wishlist.

THEME: LOVE
The theme is purposefully broad to give you lots of room to work with.  We are not limiting you to romantic love, so feel free to experiment with maternal/paternal love, love of friendship, heartbreak, anything that fits along the theme!

REQUIREMENTS

Min/Max Wordcount: Please keep stories between 1k and 10k.  Keep in mind you only have a month to write and edit, so don’t bite off more than you can chew!

Content: As a SMASHgenie, you will be required to incorporate a MINIMUM of one item from your recipient’s wishlist.  Feel free to incorporate more if you see fit!

Editing: Srsly. No one is going to upset if the Oxford Comma isn’t used 100% consistently, but things DO need to be edited.

Submission: Please submit your story as a GoogleDoc to the SMASHstaff, who will pass it onto your recipient.

CHECK-INS
During the month, SMASHstaff will be doing check-ins with SMASHgenies to see how they’re doing, if they are on track to finish, or to be sounding board to help get ideas flowing.

WHAT IF I DON’T FINISH ON TIME?
Sometimes life happens.  We understand.  There will be a short grace period for completing your story after the due date, but we strongly urge you not to PLAN on using the grace period.  We want everyone to receive their story in a timely manner.  

SMASHstaff reserve the right to remove a participant from the exchange or ban them from future exchanges if deemed necessary.  

Good luck and have fun SMASHers!
