Sorry for lagging ass, I'll get a poll up with the titles to choose from shortly. Last chance to put suggestions up then we'll get the ball rolling.

In the past what we've done is had people submit their pieces via PM to keep it anonymous. Then the stories are posted in a new thread and we vote for the best one in addition to guessing who wrote each submission. Most people do short stories, but we can keep it loose on the format to include poetry, scripts, Powerpoint presentations, etc. this time around to get more submissions. We should also get a theme going to make comparing and voting a little easier.

For the theme, we will be using the same title and using that as a prompt for our submissions. You can submit your idea for a title in this thread or by sending me a PM.

Who's interested?
Are you saying that every one will have the same title for their story despite it being Sci-fi, Romance, Historical Fiction, short story, poetry, movie screen play, sitcom, theatrical play, or opera? E.g. everybody's title would be "Love in the Time of Covid19" ?
