Round Robin guidelines
Winterfest Online 2008
January 12 - 20
A round robin story is a type of collaborative storytelling in
a number of authors take turns writing chapters of an ongoing story.
We hope we didn't scare you off with all those rules! If you'd like to
write a chapter of the round robin, contact us at email@example.com

take people in the order in which we receive their email saying they'd
like to participate.
- Also there are rules which should go without saying, so we
won't. (But an example would be: Don't kill off any existing
- Keep in mind that Winterfest is a party, so a story on the
would be appreciated.
