Where do I post my work?

Postby WFOL » Sun Dec 13, 2015 3:00 pm

It's up to you where you post your work. If you have a personal website or blog, then it probably makes the most sense to post your work there. If not, we have some suggestions below, or some of your fellow fans may be willing to lend a hand.

If one of your BATB friends has a blog or website, perhaps they can post your work. Ask! (And if you have a site and can handle the postings, volunteer!) We've provided a subforum here called Help - hosting which you may use to either ask for or offer help with posting submissions.

If you don't mind a little Do-It-Yourself, then you might try starting your own web site or blog. Or you might like to post stories at fanfiction.net. Or post your artwork at deviantart. Look for more detailed posts about how to do these. And if you already know how to do these things, or have more suggestions, please consider posting about them here. You'll be helping others get their "dishes" to the table! :-)

And one more option: Self-posting is the way to go, but fandom archive sites such as Tunnel Tales, Steam Tunnels, and The Reading Chamber might be able to take your submission. If so, the admins will likely make guidelines announcements, and if they do, please follow the posted instructions. There will likely be limits to how many stories can be accepted. There will be specific deadlines for submitting, likely well in advance of opening day. Contact these sites before sending your work there. Check first!

If you're looking for a place to post your WFOL work, try Google Drive! It's so easy to use - you just drag your file (word doc or other text file, jpg, png, mp3, video, etc) right into your Google Drive window. Then choose 'get a shareable link'. That's all you need to contribute to Winterfest!

You do need a Google account to access Google Drive and post projects on it, but it's free to sign up if you don't have an account already. Anyone with the link (which you copy and paste to the submissions entry form) - even those without a Google account - will be able to click on your link and view your Winterfest work.

You don't have to create a website or a blog or find someone to put your work online for you. You can do it yourself in just a few easy steps.

Go HERE to get started: https://www.google.com/drive/
