With the increased difficulty of finding stories about women, this collection was born. Featuring rare women from big and small fandoms in het, femslash, poly, and gen stories, Rarewomen is an annual spring exchange.
Schedule for Rarewomen 2012:
- January 7 thru January 21: NOMINATIONS PROCESS. Each participant may nominate FIVE FANDOMS. One must be a LARGE fandom*, followed by up to four SMALL fandoms. In each fandom, up to FIVE CHARACTERS may be nominated.
- January 25 thru February 8: SIGN UP PROCESS. Each participant may request THREE FANDOMS. One must be a LARGE fandom, followed by up to two SMALL fandoms. In each fandom, up to FIVE CHARACTERS may be requested. Characters will be treated as AND/OR selections rather
than a full match. ANY is a viable selection for both requests and offers. Each participant must offer at least ONE LARGE fandom, and other than that offers are limitless. Participants may specify characters they would like to offer.
- Around February 15, possibly earlier: ASSIGNMENTS GO OUT
- April 30: STORIES DUE
