After taking into consideration the results of the polls I conducted about the anthology, the team has reached a decision about what we’re offering next year.
In 2023 we will be offering two site-wide events for authors to participate in – one anthology and one secret author contest. Stay tuned for further details on both!
People overwhelmingly voted to have one theme for the anthology, and the majority wanted a committee to decide on themes, but also wanted to vote on themes. So here is how we will be handling theme selection for next year’s anthology:
I will form a committee who will suggest themes and then narrow them down to a top five. Once the top five have been decided, I will create a poll for the GA membership to vote on. The top choice from that poll will be our theme for 2023.
Anyone can become a member of the theme selection committee. I will be limiting the committee to five members, so if I get more volunteers than that, I will use a random generator to select the members. If you are interested in participating, please send me a PM before midnight EST on November 30th, and I will add your name to the list.
Once I have selected the five committee members, I will invite them to the Anthology Development Club, where the discussion will take place. My goal is to have the theme for next year decided by the end of this year.
A huge thank you to all who participated in the polls and discussion! Your feedback was instrumental in the development of the 2023 site author events.
